When it comes to kitchen designs Kitchens Plus continues to to be the experts in remodeling kitchens in homes throughout the Triangle.  Let;s give you a few ideas of the trends sweeping across Raleigh area kitchens in the past year:

1. Colored cabinets

Whether you are a parent with young children or a looking for a pop of color in your kitchen, go with darker or colored cabinets, especially on the lower set of cabinets.  This will keep sticky, dirty fingers from leaving your cabinets looking dirty or having to constantly keep them clean.

However, if you have no children to worry about marking up your cabinets, a darker lower cabinet with an open  shelving plan on the top can make your Raleigh kitchen stand out and feel like a bigger more open space. With adding a pop of color to either parts of your cabinets can help to contrast other parts of your kitchen.

2. Countertops

Adding some zing to your kitchen can be done simply with changing out the countertops.  With so many different colors and types of countertops to choose from, it's hard to pick something wrong for a kitchen.

If you are looking for something to give your kitchen some warmth, Butcher Block is a great top to go with for your counters. It is durable and the upkeep on butcher block is pretty simple by using board oil once or twice per year.

If you are looking for something non traditional on your counters such as marble or quartz, try going with a conctrete countertop.  Its heavy, but incredibly durable and something different to looking into. Check out some of the pros and cons of installing concrete counter tops in your kitchen.

3. Backsplash and Floor

You will want to make sure you choose the right difference for your backsplash and your floor.  Kitchens Plus always suggests going with a tiled type of backsplash and viynl for your floors.

Subway tiles are a classic choice for backsplashes.  You will typically want to stick with white or grayish type colors for your subway tile.  But there are other types of tyles with different colors that you can choose from.

For your floors, there are kitchens that can support Tiles there too.  However, viynl flooring is a more affordable and depensing option for such a high traffic area.  Contact kitchens plus to find the best and latest designs for kitchen flooring.
