CT Kitchen Trends. It can get rather expensive to redo Kitchens with each trend. According to Zillow Digs" Kitchens featuring black counter tops, open shelves or glass-front cabinets and darker paint tones are popular with homeowners, as seen in Home Design Trend Report for 2014. If you like black the counter tops can be quite stunning, however this is still trendy. In my opinion open shelve in the kitchen is space that can be used for storage it there were doors but many like the open look. If you think that you could be selling your CT Home in the near future you may wish to consider a more neutral approach. But that is totally up to you.
Elle Decor predicts jewel tones and rich colors will dominate kitchen design in the year ahead. They describe Kitchens as becoming glamorous! Designer cabinets painted with jewel colors, shiny metal counters, back splashes and fixtures are select to create this trend. Dramatic and beautiful but very trendy.
If you can afford to update again in a few years, you can take the risk of putting in trendy counter tops that look like malachite, agate or other stones. A neutral Granite or Corian will outlive the trendy choices and still be upscale and purposeful. Painted cabinets go in and out. If you are updating with existing cabinets, painting would give you a different look for an interim feature. Again, if you think you might have to move and will be selling your CT home in a few years you are best to stay more neutral. This is true for the flooring as well.
CT Kitchen Trends. Go with the trend if you must, but, if you're going to have to live with your kitchen for many years or you plan to sell in a few years and don't want to have to remodel again, stick with neutrals for counter tops, walls, flooring and cabinetry. Save the bolder patterns for less expensive accents like paint, curtains, rugs and pillows.
