At the start of any new year, kitchen design experts share their thoughts on what trends will appeal most to high-end homeowners. 2020 is definitely no exception.
We were checking out what House Beautiful has to say on the topic, as not every trend works well in every home. Some trends have limited appeal based on geography – and when you’re in an area with lots of historic homes, like Weston, MA, there’s always the concern that kitchen renovations and upgrades improve and enhance the home’s aesthetic and charm.
Planning Your Kitchen Remodel: Do You Like to Experiment?
Over the past few years, kitchen designers have been encouraging homeowners to work with unconventional materials. House Beautiful calls out leather wrapped cabinetry and brass back splashes.
As kitchen designers, we can say there’s nothing more exciting than a client who’s willing to take chances and try new things. As builders, we know it’s important to think about how these unconventional materials will work in both the short and long term, as well as how they’ll impact the functionality and comfort of your kitchen.
On average, homeowners remodel the kitchen every ten to fifteen years. This information can help you decide whether or not you want to invest in an unusual building material. If you’re on the fence, ask yourself “Do I want to live with this for the next decade? Do I want ten years of looking at this every time I make a cup of coffee or while you’re washing the dishes?
Understanding the Role of the Kitchen Design Team
While you’re planning your Weston MA kitchen remodel, it’s important to understand that the kitchen design team can begin helping you very early in the process. The advantages of working with a design professional early is that you achieve a deep understanding of what you want to achieve with your remodel, which eliminates the need to make expensive changes once the build has begun.
