If you’re thinking about updating your home, kitchens and bathrooms still top the list as the most popular construction renovations. According to Residential Architect, they have identified some of the latest trends in kitchen and bathroom design.
It’s not just about cooking! Kitchens are becoming the central hub of the family home. Yes, kitchens are where you store and prepare food, but kitchens are also being used for family gathering, entertaining family and friends, and for everyday living. How many of you have a computer, phone chargers, or some type of technology in your kitchen? You need to have easy accessibility to that recipe you saw on-line, or that “honey, please stop by the store and pick up…” for those missing ingredients.
For 2014, Residential Architect found LED lighting to be the most popular feature in a kitchen. This feature is followed by computer areas with recharging stations, large pantry spaces, upper-end appliances, double islands, adaptability/universal design, and drinking water filtration systems.
When it comes to bathroom designs, Residential Architect found the most popular features to be LED lighting, door less showers, as well as adaptability/universal design.
So if you’re contemplating a renovation to your home, consider the current trends in both kitchen and bathroom designs.
