Top 7 Minnesota Kitchen Design Trends For Your Kitchen
Quartz countertops will continue to rule the kitchen.
Quartz countertops are not going anywhere. In fact, it is predicted to be the number one countertop for many more years to come because it looks timeless, it’s durable and it’s relatively affordable. Throw in the fact that with quartz you don’t need to worry about scrubbing the surface or even think about sealing it from time to time. Perfect for busy kitchens!
Stainless steel for that modern and elegant look.
In glossy photos of modern residential and commercial kitchens, stainless steel appliances reign supreme. It blends well with any design and adds a touch of class that non-stainless steel appliances just can’t compete with. The new trend for 2018 will be “smudge proof” stainless steel appliances that reduce fingerprints.
Say goodbye to your isolated kitchen. Open kitchen layouts are in!
No one likes to hang around in tight spaces. Especially tight kitchen spaces. If you find yourself and your family spending more time in the kitchen, you might want to tear down some walls. Spacious and comfortable kitchens encourage more interactions and more conversations which in turn translate to closer relationships with the people around you.
Smart storage and integrated appliances for that minimalist appearance.
Hate counter clutter? You’ll be happy to know that more kitchens have adapted a minimalist and streamlined approach by integrating appliances and ‘concealing’ them with clever paneling.
Well-placed LED lights to enhance your kitchen’s new look.
LED lights are cheap and come in a variety of colors. It’s also brighter, more energy efficient and longer lasting than good old fluorescent and halogen bulbs. You can put LED strip lights under your cabinets or your counter, under the island, tables, chairs, anywhere you want basically!
Big and practical sinks to do all your washing in.
Sinks may not get as much attention in kitchen remodels but it plays such a huge role in the kitchen that we just have to point out that big and deep sinks are getting popular. You can choose to install any type of backsplash material you want but you surely don’t want splashes getting on your clothes especially if you’re getting ready for work!
Two toned kitchen cabinets to modernize your kitchen.
If you’re tired of an all-white or all-solid color you currently have on your cabinets, then you might want to repaint it in two different colors. One color for upper cabinets and another for the ones down low. The color combinations are endless but we highly recommend you use neutral colors like gray, beige, ivory or different shades of white to give your kitchen that timeless look (plus it would play well with the other six design trends we listed above).
