The deep farm style sinks that seem to be popular everywhere, brick pizza ovens are finding their way into many of the kitchen, as well as granite countertops.
This kitchen remodeler talks about the various styles and applications of granite countertops. You will also find that many are upgrading their kitchen windows to large open bay windows for greater visibility into the yard. Homeowners prefer hard stone countertops compared to the laminate countertops that scratch and scuff easily.
Industrial dishwashers and stoves are also a common theme among the luxury homes. People spend a lot of time in their kitchens so having appliances that can stand up to the wear and tear of a large family or a home that entertains guests is important. We have also found that large backsplashes are becoming more common in higher end kitchens. The backsplash will often time match that of the countertops, so if the countertop is made of Granite stone then the backsplash will match that making it a pricey investment. Also popular among remodeled kitchens are countertop bars and bar stools.
Many people are spending less time at the kitchen table and more time at quick, convenient, eating nooks and countertop bars. The modern family cannot go without a TV mounted in their kitchen space, making the need for one even more desired than ever. Installing a wall mount during construction is often times advised so that you are not anchoring mounting bolts into a newly remodeled kitchen. If the Granite backsplash is installed beyond the countertops then space will need to be reserved for a mounting bracket. For larger kitchens and more open spaces, kitchen islands are also a preferred structure.
The more advanced kitchen islands will be equipped with a sink, cupboards, and enough countertop surface to prep food on. The countertop surface of the kitchen island should match that of the main surfaces, so if Granite is the preferred material for the primary countertops then the kitchen island would also feature granite surfaces. Cupboards are extremely important for efficiency, many modern cupboards offer rotating shelving and/or sliding shelves for convenient access to pans and dishes. Remodeling your kitchen comes with a lot of decisions, and finding a contractor to do the job for you will be important.
Do your research, ask questions, and make sure you take time to think about what look and feel you really want. At the end of the day, nobody wants to spend thousands of dollars on a kitchen remodel only to be stuck with something they don’t like.
