Hot Kitchen Trends for 2013

Take a look at 5 hot Kitchen trends cooking up in 2013

  1. White Cabinets or light wood cabinets are going to pair nicely with contemporary accents that are also trending for 2013, they reflect light and thus give the space a more open feeling, which is great way to make your small kitchen feel bigger without knocking down walls. Using white or a light colored wood gives a neutral pallet to build on, and is a smart choice for a long term investment.
  2. Stainless Steel appliances are still a hot choice for 2013, commercial gas stoves with griddle surfaces or more than 4 burners have become very desirable. Homeowners also want appliances to do double duty, microwaves that double as second ovens and warming drawers, and refrigerators with convertible drawers that can act as the fridge, freezer, or wine fridge. Appliances like the microwave are going undercover, being built in under countertops.
  3. Hardwood Floors are a strong trend for kitchens in 2013, so if you're looking to replace your ripped up vinyl floors this year consider a wood flooring option. For example engineered wood floors are a great option for kitchen flooring, because they are more resistant to higher moister areas than solid wood flooring. Another great option is porcelain floor tiles that have wood grain. This option gives a similar look as wood, but with less maintenance and better water tolerance.
  4. Quartz is now king of the countertop world, because of its durability and virtually no maintenance qualities. Although Granite is no longer the reigning king of countertops, it will continue to be a popular choice.
  5. Stylish Sinks are a great option if you are able to make only one update this year. 2013 will see a continued trend towards stone, copper and fireclay farmhouse sinks. Companies like Kohler are introducing farmhouse sinks in styles to compliment even the most modern style kitchen like brushed nickel and stainless steel.
