2013 Global Kitchen Renovation Trends
Does your very old kitchen need renovation? Are the old fashioned tiles and overdone wallpapers making you cringe? Are your kitchen appliances too old and consume too much electricity? Well then, it might be time to do some kitchen renovation! Remember, when you do your kitchen renovation, you should be able to keep up with the times. Gone is the era of gaudy lime green kitchens and funky wallpapers. It is already 2013 so dress up your kitchen for the new age.
- Refacing your kitchen cupboards, compartments and cabinets. If you do not want to completely replace your kitchen cupboards and cabinets, you always have the option to reface them. Refacing, in renovation terms, is just changing the cabinet doors while keeping the original cupboard and cabinet structure. When you do your cabinet refacing, remember that simple is better. Choose classic designs and colours that will last a decade.
- Choosing quartz as your solid kitchen countertop material for your renovation. The countertop material of choice this year is quartz because it is very strong and elegant. Much better than ordinary stone countertops. Also, quartz has a cleaner pattern than granite.
- Hardwood floors are in, small tiles and linoleum are out. Hardwood flooring is one of the top renovation materials of choice this year. Hardwood flooring with larger planks that create a relaxed air are usually the ones recommended by renovation companies for most kitchens. Do remember that hardwood floors are quite hard to maintain. They need a little extra care.
- Deep bowl sinks instead of the usual rectangular basin sinks for your kitchen renovation. Whether single or double sinks, the deep bowl designs are the trend. The materials most recommended by renovation companies are usually stainless steel due to their durability and affordability.
