6 Kitchen Trends that Have Serious Staying Power

Kitchen trends come and go, and what is popular one year is way down on the list one or two years later. That reason alone is why it is so difficult to determine if a trend is worth embracing or if it is better to choose something that has been around forever. Truly timeless kitchen trends include kitchen design ideas that add to the aesthetic appeal or the functionality of the kitchen. Here are 6 kitchen trends that have serious staying power:

  • Quartz Countertops: For years, people chose granite for their kitchen countertops, but we recommend that you choose quartz when it is time to make a change. Quartz is just as durable as granite, yet it does not require as much maintenance and care.
  • Open Layouts: Open layouts are here to stay, because spending time with family and friends is on the top of everyone’s list. After all, no one wants to be banished to the kitchen to prepare a meal and miss out on all the fun everyone is having in the other room!
  • Unique Ceilings: You will not need to have boring ceilings in your kitchen anymore, because there are plenty of options available that involve more than a coat of paint. Beams, shallow coffers, and molding can add design and visual appeal to any space.
  • Conceal Appliances: Appliances can be concealed in more than an appliance garage. It is now possible to place a refrigerator, dishwasher, and other appliances behind paneling that looks the same as your cabinets. This will keep the flow of your kitchen seamless, while adding visual appeal.
  • White: A white kitchen will never go out of style, so if you are having a difficult time choosing a color, we recommend that you choose white. It matches everything and over time, you can change the look with additional pops of color.
  • Deep Drawers: Deep drawers are replacing cabinets in many kitchens nowadays and they are wonderful for dishes, pots, pans, and more. They add an element of accessibility to your kitchen and can be customized to fit your needs.

These kitchen trends will never go out of style and they are guaranteed to work well for your needs far into the future. As always, weigh the functionality against the style. Never choose style over functionality simply for the sake of style. Functionality can always be made to be stylish.

5 Features Every Elegant Bathroom Needs

An elegant bathroom is much more than a marble shower, fancy toilet, and floating vanity. Many other features have the ability to add to your bathroom so that it looks and feels elegant and luxurious. All you have to do is dream it, show us what you want, and we’ll help make it a reality.

Here are 5 features that every elegant bathroom needs:

  1. Curbless Shower: A curbless shower does not take away any of the space inside your bathroom and will instead keep the space looking and feeling large and open. These showers can be surrounded by glass or you can create them to be completely open with the floors flowing seamlessly from the shower to the rest of the room.
  2. Soaking Tub: If you are the type of person who loves to soak in a tub at the end of a long day, then consider installing a fabulous soaking tub in your bathroom. This tub can become a focal point of the room if you wish, especially if you install a sculptured freestanding one.
  3. Multiple Showerheads: Multiple showerheads offer the ultimate in both water flow and relaxation. A beautiful fast flowing rain shower head can be accompanied with a handheld showerhead and will turn your bathroom into a magnificent spa.
  4. Steam Showers and Aromatherapy: Steam showers are becoming more popular, because they provide the luxurious feel of having an amazing spa or steam room in your home. Adding aromatherapy to the steam will only enhance this experience and you can choose which scents will work best for you, whether you are trying to wake up or calm down.
  5. Chromotherapy: Therapeutic features are more than steam, water, and aromatherapy. Chromotherapy is the latest feature that many people are enjoying. This feature floods the room with light and color to help you relax, wake up, or calm down, depending on your specific needs.

Chromotherapy adjusts our body’s vibrations to frequencies using colors to promote health and inner harmony. Most people are familiar with the winter blues or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD sufferers often find relief with light therapy; this is the very basic idea behind chromotherapy.

These features will make your bathroom look and feel more like a spa and we guarantee that you will want to spend quite a bit more time in the space. This is a wonderful thing, because it will allow you to utilize the me time that you normally do not take advantage of.
