If you’re considering a kitchen remodel for your Johnson County home, you’re certainly in good company! The kitchen is the one room in the home that is remodeled more than any other, either to make the home more appealing before putting it on the market, or simply to give it a fresh, updated look the homeowners will enjoy. Either way, our Overland Park kitchen remodeling experts have a few tips and trends for 2014 and beyond.
Right now, what’s “in” in the kitchen includes:
Sconce lighting. A combination of function and decor, this type of lighting isn’t just for tasks. Sconce lighting often features aged brass, iron, or black finishes, and may have adjustable arms so that you can direct the light to any area you like. Whether you prefer a country, rustic, modern, or contemporary look, there is a wide array of style and decor options available.
Natural and raw materials add natural beauty that’s stunning. From natural stone and brick surrounding islands to exposed natural beams, open shelving, and reclaimed wood, homeowners love the warm, charming, and somewhat “old world” rustic look of a kitchen that embraces natural materials. Natural elements create a natural atmosphere that feels welcoming, and looks wonderfully distinctive.
Open shelving. Why hide your collectibles and fine china, when you can incorporate it into a beautiful display with open shelving? Not only can you easily find what you’re looking for, it’s a great way to create eye-catching accents. While you probably won’t want every cabinet transformed into open shelving, selecting one area to display all of your travel souvenirs and pieces designed more for decorative purposes will create a great focal point for the room. Older homes used to be built with open shelving; somehow, everything old eventually becomes new again!
