Among painted cabinetry, white has stayed on top of the chart since last year. Given its remarkable, upward climb over the past three years, it’s clearly no fad. Such a clean bright look for any kitchen.


Darker finishes

Use of light, medium and natural finishes has remained more or less consistent over the past year. Add some light fixtures and watch how the kitchen brightens up.


Glass backsplash


The preference for glass splashes has grown dramatically over the past three years. Adding a high-end glass tile backsplash is a lot easier than you may think, and it makes a tremendous difference in your kitchen’s style.


LED lighting


As consumer awareness of energy efficiency has risen, it comes as no surprise that light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting is being specified by a higher percentage of designers. So add some lights and see the look your kitchen can transform into.


Satin Nickel


When it comes to faucet finishes in kitchens, satin nickel has been on the top since 2011. With a clean polished look these finishes can work in almost any kitchen.



When it comes to redesigning your kitchen will you try all of these ideas or a just a couple?
