Thinking of making some changes in your kitchen? Look at some current trends from a Houzz survey of homeowners who were remodeling their kitchens:
A majority of the home owners (77%) planned to open their kitchen to other rooms. The kitchen does not need to be bigger, just more open.
Granite is still very popular (50%), followed by quartz (36%) for counter finishes.
Color – Keep it Conservative
75% of home owners prefer soft, neutral colors for walls and decor.
Style of Kitchen
Younger home owners desire contemporary styles and people 55+ prefer traditional-style kitchens.
Hardwood floors are the most popular followed by tile.
Almost half of those surveyed would like to have eco-friendly appliances and materials in their kitchens.
No Matchy Matchy
Home owners prefer mixing materials. Many prefer having a kitchen island made of one material and counter tops made of another. Home owners like having some stainless steel appliances mixed with appliances made of other finishes.
