When thinking of remodeling, people always want to know what is trending. Well, grey is the new black and induction cook tops are becoming popular.

Currier Kitchens, Purple shoudl be an accent color

Currier Kitchens of Nashua, NH recommends trusting your kitchen designer to place the colors you want in a way that is in keeping with current trends, yet is not trendy. This homeowner might have been happier for years with accents in purple instead of cabinets.

But, don’t think that you have to follow the trends. Choose colors that feel comfortable to you. That said, you may adore purple, but use it as an accent.

A kitchen remodel should last many years so select cabinets in neutral shades. If you are choosing granite countertops, remember there are stones that have flecks of different colors, even purple.

There is a difference between trends and trendy. Trendy may only last one year or season ie. leisure suits, mood rings, and the ever popular pet rock. Trends can last decades. The kitchen island and universal design are trends that began in the 90’s and are now almost mandatory in new construction.

Professional kitchen designers guide you through your design process. They listen to your preferences, and understand you may want purple. They know where the trends are headed and will help you decide between what is trendy now and what will make your new kitchen investment last for many years.

Can you name any trends and a few things that are trendy now?  Have fun!
