“Gone are the days when a kitchen was just a kitchen”
Have you always dreamed of a bigger kitchen with more cabinet space, a kitchen that is much more than just a place to prepare your next meal? If so, you are not alone.
Kitchen renovation is slated to be one of the top remodeling projects of 2013 nationwide.
With these 2013 kitchen remodeling trends, your dream kitchen can now become a reality.
A touch of modern architecture is all you may need. It could be as simple as adding an island, new cabinets or LED lighting.
More homeowners are adding an island, which makes the room more functional with a larger prep space for cooking as well as creating a gathering place for family and friends. Rather than a traditional square island more people are choosing a variety of shapes such as rectangular, oval or pentagon. Altering the island shape creates interest, drama and energy in the kitchen.
Another great redesign is to create large free flowing cabinets that extend all the way to the ceiling while at the same time creating 40% more storage space.
Twenty years ago, kitchen cabinets were considered well equipped if they had a lazy susan or room for plants at the top. Now kitchens with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry offer more space with built in shelves and bread boxes and can be designed to house everything from your everyday dishes to your appliances. When it comes to today’s kitchens, cabinet manufacturers have made it easy to hide almost any appliance, trash compactor or wine cooler behind a matching cabinet door, creating a cohesive look throughout the kitchen.
To modernize your new 2013 kitchen don’t forget the LED lighting. Not only is it energy efficient but it is becoming more and more important because according to Cypressdecor.com the kitchen is the most used and most important room in your home.
2013 is the year of built in LED lights, so look for under-cabinet LED lights and appliances that come with ambient lighting. Light fixtures with an easily changeable feature when you’re in the mood for a different color. 2013 kitchen design trends say no to lighting that’s merely functional, and yes to ample and mood lighting creating an inviting living space.
