Description

Contemporary kitchens are full of energy-efficient appliances and state-of-the-art flooring and countertops. With interest in gourmet cooking high, today's kitchens are well-thought out and extremely useable spaces. Not only that, they are beautiful to behold. If you are performing nightly cooking chores in an outdated kitchen, rocket yourself into the new millennium and consider a kitchen remodel project.

Some of the trends you're likely to encounter in the most current of kitchens include combining the space and activities of family rooms and kitchens into one space commonly called a "great room," creating space for a computer corner, and building in special storage areas. Perhaps you enjoy wine and serve it often-you can incorporate space for your wine collection in your kitchen. Or maybe you need space for your collection of gourmet cookware-there are new options such as special drawers for pots and pans now available in today's kitchens.

Kitchens today place a great emphasis on functionality and efficiency of appliances, with some home owners choosing commercial grade appliances for their kitchens. But that doesn't mean that kitchen design needs to be plain and dull. Far from it. Cabinetry today is a finely honed craft, with myriad design choices and a huge selection of woods and laminates to choose from. One current trend is toward cabinets that look more like furniture, with designers adding tables and decorative molding on cabinetry to achieve a more unstructured look. Painted and glazed finishes are also very popular.

Countertops can feature the beauty of natural materials such as granite and limestone. Butcher block and concrete are also popular materials. The same is true of flooring-in today's kitchens, durability does not mean sacrificing beauty. The selection of lighting is staggering and ranges from traditional ceiling lights, to track or recessed lighting to chandelier. Live in a hot climate? Perhaps you'll want to choose a combination fan and light for your kitchen ceiling.
