Biggest Kitchen Remodel Trends of 2015

There’s keeping up with the Joneses and then there’s being the Joneses themselves – whom would you rather be?

At Granite & Marble Specialties, we make it our mission to provide you with the best, most beautiful material available at an affordable price. Our experience in the industry means we keep our eye on the latest home kitchen design trends and developments. Here’s what we’re seeing more and more of as 2015 rolls along:

Modern and Traditional Tendencies Combine

If you visit a friend’s newly remodeled kitchen this year, don’t be surprised if you’re a little taken aback by what you see. Long-held beliefs of maintaining consistency in materials and style is going out the window as homeowners shift toward a blend of traditional and modern looks. For example, installing wood cabinetry in combination with stainless steel is common in more and more kitchens these days, so don’t be afraid to break the mold with your own remodel!

Islands are Back in Style

Popular in kitchens built in the ’80s and ’90s, islands tend to look dated these days. However, a modern island can serve as more than a food prep or serving area – with the right approach, your island can become the centerpiece of your kitchen. Consider a sleek, natural stone surface and upgraded lighting to really draw attention to your kitchen and attract onlookers as you prepare dinner.

Natural Stone Countertops

We all know that natural stone countertops can add significant value to your home’s resale price, but the intangible benefits will help you enjoy your kitchen on its own. There’s nothing like putting your hands on a smooth stone surface and preparing food on its surface – and that’s something that every homeowner should experience.

Granite & Marble Specialties has the materials and expertise to recommend the right stone for your home installation. Stop by our showroom to check out some of our demonstration materials or give us a call for an estimate on your job. Contact us today!
