Quartz Countertops- Many have heard that quartz countertops are now king. It is incredibly durable, low-maintenance and comes in a wide variety of style and colors. Plus quartz is heat and scratch resistant and is non-porous, so it doesn't need to be sealed.
Multi-purpose Islands- Not only is an island perfect for that extra prep space; many islands are now featuring sinks, built-in spots for appliances and spare under the counter storage. You can also add some bar-stools for added seating. A great tip is to add outlets to the side of the island for an easy way to plug in your appliances.
Bold Backsplashes- Subway tiles have dominated the backsplash world but is slowly being replaced with a more bold backsplash. If you're looking to add a pop of color, fun patterns, shape and texture, this is a great way to do so.
Two-toned kitchen cabinets- Kitchen cabinets have a way of making the entire kitchen. Whether white for a clean look, dark stain to create warmth or anywhere in between, cabinets are a centerpiece. If you want to add even more intrigue, two-tone cabinets can create a focal point. In fact, this is a common trend in the market today.
