Top 3 Kitchen Design Trends

News | 18th May 2012

Have you been looking for tips designing a new kitchen or remodeling an existing kitchen sometime this year? Home renovation should include a well thought out design and materials that withstand the test of time to service your family for years to come. Even if you aren’t planning for a full kitchen renovation this year, there are some small additions you can make to update your kitchen. Here’s what we believe are the top 3 kitchen design trends for 2012.

Pullout Faucets

Pullout faucets have been all the rave this year and have caused many homeowners to throw out their old kitchen faucets and sinks. The old models of kitchen sprayers are composed of plastic and typically permitted mildew and mold to grow. Unlike these models, the new pullout faucets have the sprayer built into the faucet and are offered in some pretty trendy designs. If you’re fed up with your current kitchen sink or just looking for a quick update in your kitchen, take a trip to your local hardware or home decor outlet.

Pullout faucets are accessible in various colors and designs so there shouldn’t be any problems finding a sink and faucet to match your decor. Depending on where you shop and the specific style you’re after, you may be able to find a new pullout faucet for less than $500.

Glass Backsplashes

Glass has always been a highly sought after material used to create kitchen decor. Glass is often used to create kitchen counters and is now being used in tile form in other areas of the kitchen as well. The use of glass backsplashes in kitchens has grown since last year and continues to be a must have for renovated and new kitchens.

Glass backsplashes are starting to replace the ceramic tile backsplashes which were once a kitchen trend. Some other popular materials that have been used to create backsplaces are granite and quartz which are materials commonly used to make kitchen countertops. The usage of glass backsplashes make a huge impact in your kitchen’s decor and continue to be a trend of 2012.

Technology Inspired Appliances and Decor

Many of the high tech applications and design concepts are starting to make their way to showrooms worldwide. These innovations commonly use your smartphone or tablet device to interact and perform required tasks.

Some of the latest appliances have the USB capability which interacts with your device to display your favorite pictures or play your favorite audio. Cooking areas built into the counter tops have also been a trendy addition to kitchens since you can cook on the entire surface and instead one area being heated.

If you’re in the process of renovating an existing kitchen or if you’re developing your kitchen from the ground up, you may want to consider these top 3 kitchen design trends. Pullout faucets, glass backsplashes, and technology inspired kitchen additions may be what you need to liven up your kitchen this year.
