Here are some of the TOP TRENDs for 2014!
KITCHENS - The open concent continues to grow!
You’ll see appliance-makers embracing the open concept kitchen by making their appliances more invisible. You’ll see designers taking the most popular countertop option out there, and making one better. According to John Petrie, the 2014 president of the National Kitchen and Bath Association, “walls are going to continue to come down.”
COLOURS - Neutral with a SPLASH of colour!
Neutral palates continue to dominate in the home, bold color continues to pop up in small details, such as in a back splash, throw pillows, or lighting. "There is also a trend towards subtle glamour – neutral palettes with dazzling details," according to Jase Frederick, ASID Illinois' director of communications.
COUNTERTOPS - Say goodbye to granite and hello to quartz!
As far as kitchen and bathroom countertops go, factory-engineered quartz is the new granite. While granite has held strong as the most popular countertop material for more than a decade now, quartz is starting to overtake it.
Quartz has the same look and feel as granite, but it’s more practical. Quartz is more durable, so it better resists cracking and chipping, and it is non-porous so it’s easier to clean and resists staining.
