Did you know the term “modern” as it relates to kitchen design is used/interpreted differently by design professionals and homeowners? According to RICKI, an industry research group dedicated to uncovering trends that enable better decisions and smarter product development by leading kitchen brands, when interior designers use the word “modern,” they are typically referring to a particular style, but when consumers use the word “modern” to describe their dream kitchens, they are usually talking about an up-to-date space, regardless of their preferred style. Whatever the design style, there are elements that homeowners prioritize for the modern, updated kitchens of their dreams. Here’s a look at three of the top kitchen remodeling priorities.
Updated countertops are always a top priority. New surfacing might take the form of natural stone, cement, wood, stainless steel. or even glass, but one of the most important requirements consumers have when it comes to countertops is more of them. Surface space for working, eating, and entertaining is valuable kitchen real estate, so having enough of it is a worthy investment. Even just a few more inches of countertop space can make a big difference. Our Hidden Countertop Brackets can easily help you acquire more countertop space, while eliminating bulky corbels or legs for a clean, uncluttered look as well as creating extra space for more comfortable seating.
Ample Storage Space
There’s just no such thing as too much storage space in a kitchen, and dream kitchens always have plenty of it. Hideaway storage such as pullout pantry racks, pullout shelves, and multi-tiered drawers are the key to keeping a modern kitchen looking well organized and clean. Large islands are the ideal space to add much-needed storage as well – especially if you “float” the island countertop with Hidden Island Brackets for easy access.
Hard-working, multi-tasking appliances that are built to last are a top priority for homeowners contemplating a kitchen update. When it comes to kitchen appliance tech, consumers are less interested in novelty technologies than technology that actually solves problems and saves time.
