Is a kitchen makeover in your future? If so, Haley's Flooring, our newest Redstone Discounts! partner, has some great options and trends that will help you narrow down the choices whether you’re making just a few changes or remodeling your entire space. The best thing about making over your kitchen is…you can do a lot or just a little, and it can transform your whole look. Since the kitchen is the heart of your home, it should reflect your, or your family’s, personal taste and lifestyle.

CABINET DESIGNS

From door styles and functionality to colors and designs, trending patterns in cabinetry are taking on a straight-lined and simple look. Soft grays and clean whites are gracing the doors, floors and walls. But, since trending designs are always changing, it’s important to know your style and remember that a kitchen makeover is something you’ll live with for many years.

What’s your style?

Transitional—Where contemporary mixes with traditional, you’ll find the perfect blend of style for your kitchen. Shaker doors in stains or painted colors with or without glazes are popular transitional styles. And, hardware designs incorporate simple straight lines and curves with brushed nickel and pewter finishes. 

Contemporary—If you’re looking for straight lines, less molding and glossier finishes, contemporary is your style. Polished chromes and gold finishes—yes GOLD—are sharing the stage with your transitional finishes.

Traditional—As trends shift and change, a traditional style kitchen will always be a classic. There are so many options today to choose from—colors, designs, moldings and inlays…not to mention all of the options with hardware. Antique bronze, brushed nickel or pewter finishes go great with just about any traditional door style.

 

Functionality meets design.

In today’s kitchen, there is no compromising design or function. No matter what your style, there are a wide variety of space saving options—pull outs, cutlery trays, dividers and trash pull outs, just to name a few.

 

COUNTERTOPS

When choosing a countertop, consider style, durability and price. While Quartz has grown in popularity, granite still remains a top contender. There are advantages and disadvantages of both, so it’s best to weigh your options.

Haley's Flooring can help you decide on the perfect look for your home.

Beautiful Options

Quartz has a cleaner and more simplified look. It is non-porous, heat resistant and does not need to be sealed, meaning less maintenance. However, Quartz is typically more expensive than granite.

Granite, being a natural stone, can add warmth and dimension to your kitchen. It is also heat resistant, but recommended to be resealed once a year. When searching for the granite of your choice, be sure to look at the entire slab because the colors can often vary from the sample you’re checking out.

Butcher Block is another great option growing in popularity, and the fashionable place to use it is on your kitchen island. Mixing different elements of countertop materials combines the warmth of wood with the cool surfaces of stone for the best of both worlds.

 

BACKSPLASHES

A beautiful backsplash can add interest to any kitchen design. Just like cabinet designs, there are many trending patterns to choose from, so knowing your style will make your decision a whole lot simpler. If you’re considering the softer grays, then a clean white subway tile is always a good complement. And, if you want to spice it up a bit, change it up by adding a patterned tile accent area or using a contrasting grout color. If warmer tones and natural stones are more your style, then considering a natural stone or complementary tile is your best option.

 

FLOORING

Flooring trends fall right in line with cabinet trends ushering in the grays and neutrals. While hardwood still seems to be an all-time favorite, we’re seeing more and more ceramic wood-look tile in barn wood and rustic patterns. Mixing rustic designs with modern elements creates a comfortable and more relaxed feeling environment. Tile is also more durable and easy to clean. Another upcoming fashion hitting the floor is Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) giving consumers a durable, low maintenance, water-proof and warmer floor to live on.

With so many options available, you’re bound to find the look you want with the budget you have in mind. So, take the time to search the Internet for designs and styles that that fit your lifestyle and taste.
