4 Design Trends to Choose From For Your Kitchen Remodeling Project

When it comes to kitchen remodeling, you have an abundance of design options. From the materials to the style, there are so many aspects to consider when redesigning your kitchen. The good news is that we’ve narrowed down some of the most popular trends for you, from which you can choose for your kitchen remodeling, or wherever you reside.

  1. Handcrafted Stone

Handcrafted stone is a natural material that can be used in any style of kitchen. It’s an expensive option, but it can last for many years and give you a unique look.

If you want to go with handcrafted stone, there are a few things to keep in mind: Handcrafted stone is not as durable as other materials like quartz or engineered granite. While it may hold up well over time, especially if sealed properly, it will scratch easier than those other options. You should consider what kind of lifestyle changes could happen in your home before deciding on this type of countertop so that the right one gets installed at the right time!

  1. Painted Wood Countertops

Painted wood countertops are a great way to add color and pattern to your kitchen. The painted surface can be made from a variety of woods, including cherry, maple, and oak. Painting is inexpensive and easy to apply; it’s also reversible if you don’t like the look of your new countertop after all.

Wood is durable enough for daily use as well as being easy on the environment thanks to its natural materials. But what if you want more than just plain old wood? You can paint it!

  1. Marble Backsplash

Marble is a natural stone that can be used as a backsplash in your kitchen. It is durable, stain resistant and easy to clean and maintain. Marble is also beautiful to look at, which makes it popular among homeowners who want their kitchens to look luxurious.

  1. Dark Wood Floors or Cabinets

If you want to create a warm and inviting kitchen, dark wood floors or cabinets are the way to go. The color of dark wood can be stained or painted, but it should always be sealed with polyurethane. You can choose from several different kinds of wood for your flooring or cabinetry: cherry, oak and maple are all popular choices that will enhance any kitchen design style.

You can choose from these 4 design trends when you are doing a kitchen remodel:

  • Handcrafted stone
  • Painted wood countertops
  • Marble backsplash
  • Dark wood floors or cabinets
