Kitchen Design Trends That Stand the Test of Time

Solid Hardwood Flooring

When people go to sell their home, often an important question prospective buyers have is: Are there hardwood floors? Are they real? Hardwood flooring continues to be a sought after material when it comes to flooring. Whether you go with oak, walnut, hickory, maple, or ash, your hardwoods in your kitchen will always be in style and in demand. Hardwoods can adapt to match many different evolving countertop, backsplash, and cabinet changes that come along.

Granite Countertops

You need your countertops to be durable, but you also need them to look great for decades to come. When you install a solid granite countertop you’ll see why it’s so wonderful to have this material in the kitchen. Granite will not show any signs of wear from heat or from any spills. And while other options pop up here and there – like butcher block counters for example—you really can’t go wrong by choosing granite countertops for your Albuquerque home.

White Cabinets

The clean look of white cabinets in the kitchen is one that seems to be lasting. This cabinet choice really brightens up any kitchen, large or small. It also provides an excellent opportunity to add some contrast to your kitchen design. By having the cabinets so bright, you are able to bring in a darker backsplash, darker hardware, and darker flooring options. The result is a beautifully balanced kitchen design.

Neutral Earth Tones 

Many homeowners like to add in a pop of color when it comes to wall color, backsplashes, and even flooring options. However, neutral tones like greys, beiges, whites, and earth tones remain to be popular in kitchen design. These colors make it easy to work within a palette that is appealing to the vast majority of people. It’s a safe choice and it’s something that won’t go out of style any time soon!
