10 Kitchen Trends in Fairfield County

We’ve been doing a lot of kitchen remodeling in Fairfield County this past year. I wanted to share some trends that seem to be the most popular.

 

Open Shelving.  Homeowners are embracing the opportunity to showcase pretty dishes and easy access to bowls and containers with open shelving in a kitchen.

 

Two Color Custom Cabinetry.  A kitchen island cabinet and surrounding cabinets can look different with darker colors on the bottom, making the kitchen space feel more grounded and offering a separate eating area from the kitchen based on color. Overall it’s a uniformed look with the same kitchen cabinets and hardware yet, the coloring of the cabinets is different where you eat. It’s a stylish way to give a kitchen a new yet, consistent look.

 

Tile to the Ceiling. One of our most favorite looks is having the featured back splash area become a feature wall of tile that goes straight up to the ceiling and can also wrap around windows. It’s decorative and offers function and texture to a room.

 

Brass Fixtures. Overall stainless is still the hottest accessory for a kitchen yet, brass is a close second offering warmth to both wood surfaces and looks great against both white and gray walls.

 

Wood Countertops. They are a higher maintenance surface area yet, offer warmth to a kitchen and function that granite can’t provide. Custom butcher block versions offer great value and function to a cook.

 

Recycled Materials. Another beautiful splash guard option for your kitchen are eco-friendly materials like recycled glass tiles and countertops. They offer many beautiful color combinations and unique coloring and accents to your cabinets.

 

Contemporary Wood Cabinets. If you have a contemporary home and are looking to add warmth to your living space natural wood fronts to your cabinets is a great way of doing it; cherry, maple or walnut. Seamless and streamlined for ease of use and minimal hardware.
