5 Fantastic Kitchen Remodeling Trends, Manhattan, New York

Long considered the “hub” of the home, the kitchen is where life happens. It also frequently sways home buyers to make an offer or move on to the next house. Whether you plan to sell in a few months or are simply tired of dealing with an inefficient, outdated cooking space, these kitchen remodeling trends provide the inspiration you need.

Top 5 Kitchen Remodeling Trends of 2018

1. Open Shelves & Pot Racks

Open shelves and pot racks make excellent use of wall space, something that is crucial if cabinetry is limited. They also provide the opportunity to make “still lifes” with assorted kitchen items to create a more inviting personal space. Pot racks and open shelves additionally make it easy to remember what you have so you don’t end up with stale food boxes lost to the back of cabinets.

2. Dark Cabinetry

Black cabinetry creates a sleek, modern look — as do cabinets in navy blue and dark green. They typically work better in larger kitchens since dark hues can make a room appear smaller than it is. Dark cabinets also look stunning — and create less claustrophobia — when they are paired with another hot kitchen remodeling trend: neutral walls.

3. Graphic Signs

Graphic signs add flare to any kitchen regardless of its size. Framed food and drink advertisements from the 1950s, for example, help create a retro look and feel. Some kitchen remodeling efforts include stenciling graphic signs onto walls, such as those spelling out “kitchen” in French or Spanish.

4. Reclaimed Metal Backsplashes

Reclaimed decor pieces throughout your home contribute to a unique, sustainable residence. Recycled metal backsplashes made from aluminum ceiling panels, for example, look excellent and are easier to clean than subway tile because there is no grouting to contend with.

5. Recessed Lighting

Another kitchen remodeling trend for 2018, recessed lighting creates less clutter than pendant options, especially in smaller spaces. Recessed lights become one with your ceiling while providing more illumination.
