Neutral colors, minimalistic cabinets, metallic accents, and bold finishes: some of the most common features all San Diego contemporary kitchen designs share will not go out of style anytime soon. And if you prefer a streamlined kitchen design to a traditional one, you are definitely not alone. Expert designers at Remodel Works recognize the huge demand for stylish, modern kitchens and have come up with a list of a few exciting new trends and ideas to incorporate into your future kitchen remodeling project.
Shades of Gray
Although our motto is “no gray areas” when it comes to project management and transparency of our kitchen remodeling projects, the color gray has gained extreme popularity with homeowners, replacing the traditional whites. Expert designers say that this color has almost entirely substituted white with most homeowners who opt in for a kitchen remodel, and the demand for gray cabinets in San Diego has skyrocketed in 2016. Gray cabinetry will give your kitchen a contemporary look and can be mixed with all sorts of materials like stainless steel, wood as well as most common color choices used in the kitchen.
A quartz countertop will go great with the previously mentioned gray cabinets and is also seeing an increase in popularity with San Diego homeowners. Their sleek design and subtle color gradation make it a perfect asset for any bold, contemporary kitchen. Apart from that, quartz is highly durable and resistant to heat, stain and scratch which is ideal if you spend a lot of time in your kitchen or are a messy cook.
Smart Storage Use
No matter how big your kitchen is, storage is a problem every homeowner faces at some point. That is why a contemporary kitchen is being built with smart and functional storage solutions like multi-leveled drawers, open shelving, sliding cabinets, pull-out cutting boards with a built in thrash bin and so much more. Making sure no corner is unused will not only make your kitchen look great, but will also give you the additional space you’ve desperately needed.
Merge Your Kitchen with the Living Area
Does your kitchen sometimes feel left out from the rest of your home? Streamlined kitchen designs merged with your living area are a huge trend in 2016. Many homeowners this season chose to connect the kitchen to the living area, as this makes them feel more comfortable and warm while cooking and dining. Seasoned designers use integrated and concealed appliances in order to marry the kitchen and the living room design, and the results are fabulous.
Future Kitchen Today
Leading scientists are working on adapting the 3D printing technology for culinary purposes, developing devices that can literally print your favorite meal with no effort. With this technology in your kitchen the heart of your home will become something straight out of Star Trek. And while this food printers are being developed for the use of astronauts and are years away from being implemented in our everyday lives, other futuristic features straight out of Science Fiction are already here. With a push of a button you can now wirelessly control the entire kitchen, open and close cabinets, child-proof the drawers with sharp knives, automatically turn off the stove you accidentally left running and so much more. Your kitchen will learn and adapt as you use it. This may sound far-fetched, but this technology is already available.
