We all know that trends come and go. Sometimes they stay for a day and other times they stay for many years. One of the highest trending San Diego kitchen design ideas we have seen in 2017 is the addition of two toned kitchen cabinets. We admit, we kind of love them! Are you wondering what other San Diego kitchen design elements are popular this year?
Two Toned Kitchen Cabinets
Some fun design elements that are being added to kitchen remodels is the mixing of cabinet colors. While a white kitchen is a classic and most desired cabinet choice, most homeowners want a classic look but they also don’t want to white out their entire space. Adding a dark cabinet color for an island or a separate area is usually done. This gives the kitchen a unique look but keeps the classic element alive.
Porcelain wood is also a very popular flooring option in all areas of San Diego and Temecula County. The days of maintaining hardwood floors is over. Since porcelain wood hit the design scene homeowners are opting out of hardwood floors and replacing them with porcelain. Since this tile trend comes in various shades this tile is perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. This is the most seen flooring option and it looks sleek and modern in any room.
Subway tile is still in the forefront of kitchen remodels in San Diego. We see a healthy mix of subway tile in the traditional size but we also see quite a bit of homeowners leaning towards oversized tile as well. Either way, subway tile in the kitchen gives your backsplash a beautiful look. Another thing to consider in San Diego….subway tile is comes in so many different shades, from classic white to glass and multicolor shades. You can be very creative with your tile!
San Diego Homeowners are starting to splurge on luxury appliances. They are telling us that since they are staying in the home for the next 5-10 years, they want to “go all out”. Stoves, mega refrigerators and wine fridges are on the top of the list when it comes to what homeowners want in their kitchen.
Homeowners are opting to add multiple lighting fixtures in their kitchens. Many of them include pendant lights, canned lights, and track lighting all in one space! Another currently trending kitchen remodel upgrade is to add custom windows and folding doors to add natural lighting into the space. Don’t underestimate the power of your light choices in your kitchen renovation!
