A favorite for what seems decades, granite is finally making way for other surfaces like quartz. 




3: Open Shelving

Make your kitchen feel larger by getting rid of some of that upper cabinetry in order to utilize open shelves. Show off your creative side by highlighting cookware, serving dishes and more. 


4: Kitchen Lighting

A well-lit work area is a safety essential in a kitchen. Lighting can also be used to create ambience. Having so much more cabinetry and appliances means more light is required. The key to good kitchen lighting is to rely on a cast of lighting sources and to layer your task, and accent or decorative lighting with natural light.


  •  Windows – It’s the most important source of natural lighting. One large window at the end of a gallery-style kitchen can provide strong natural light. Install simple window blinds to adjust the intensity as desired. We always suggest incorporating as many windows as possible into our kitchen remodeling designs.
  • Cabinet Lighting – In 2016, we used cabinet lighting extensively to brighten up our kitchens.  Low voltage LED light strips above cabinets and under-cabinet task and accent lighting are becoming the norm. In-cabinet lighting highlights your favorite dishes and accessories.
  • Big and Bold Fixtures – Go modern with a large pendant, decorative chandelier to add a light focal point to your kitchen. Alternatively, you can go traditional and use a lantern or hanging ceiling lights to cast a warm glow over your kitchen island. Make sure to keep these fixtures about 30 inches above an island, peninsula, or table, but might be higher if you are taller or are placing the light over a raised surface or an area such as a cooktop.
