SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2016) - Cornerstone Design and Remodeling an award winning San Diego Kitchen Remodeler reviews kitchen trends for 2016. According to Duane Wilson, "one of the most popular trends in the early stages of 2016, for kitchen remodeling, is in the area of transitional kitchens. So called because they blend elements of traditional and contemporary kitchens, transitionals incorporate modern elements like stainless steel appliances with traditional interior design."
Shaker-style cabinets are enjoying a revival of popularity, due to their adaptability with almost any style of kitchen, including country, traditional, and contemporary.
While choosing white, black, and gray colors to highlight the kitchen cannot be said to be new, those colors still figure strongly into this year's trends, simply because of their versatility. Unlike flashier colors which can lose their appeal quickly, these colors stand the test of time, and are still enjoying significant support among interior designers and home remodelers.
Slide-out shelving is a kitchen strategy which is both clever and functional, making use of available space for necessary storage. Pots, pans, and cleaning accessories can all be stowed under the sink or elsewhere, with sliding shelves that are easily accessed on demand.
Hardwood flooring is becoming a strong alternative to recently favored systems like laminates and tiles, and is appearing in planks six inches wide and more. Antique wooden flooring for the kitchen is also trending significantly in 2016.
Farmhouse sinks, a.k.a. apron sinks, are also trending in remodeled kitchens. Their compelling size alone makes them a focal point in the kitchen, and since they are now available in a huge variety of sizes and styles, they are very versatile in how they can be used in almost any style of kitchen.
Technology is also featured in 2016 kitchen remodeling trends, with the general move toward 'smart' devices moving into the kitchen. Having coffee automatically brewed for the morning wake-up is just one example, but programmed lighting and heat levels can also be managed in a modernized kitchen. Other appliances can also be included in the 'smart' kitchen management scheme, providing consistent and effortless advantages to remodelers.
