Top 5 Kitchen and Bath Trends from the 2010’s

 Opening the new year we here at Central Cabinetry decided we are going to look back at the past decade and count down the top five kitchen and bath trends. From natural material like bamboo flooring to the top technology, here are our five greatest trends from the last ten years.

  1. Sustainability

You have to highlight the great strides that have been made in the past decade to incorporate sustainable and renewable resources into the home. Bamboo and lyptus both gained traction because of their quick regrowth rate, making them much more sustainable than lumber. They are not only environmentally friendly but friendlier to your pocketbook as well due to increased lumber tariffs in the last few years.

  1. All White Everything

All white bathrooms seem to be everywhere in the last few years. Your bathroom will have a mature, clean aesthetic that helps you to feel right at home. Not only is it visually appealing, but with the right additions such as an oversized tub and wooden towel racks your bathroom will be the definition of relaxation and serenity.

  1. The Multi-Purpose Island

An island in the kitchen used to be an afterthought, placed in for counter space. Now it has become the center of the kitchen. Adding a casual bar, extra cabinet space, or even under-counter appliances will help you turn your island from extra counter space to the hub of socialization and interaction in your home.

  1. Upgrading Your Kitchen

The implementation of smart technology burst onto the scene around roughly 2015. Voice assistants like the Amazon Echo and Google Home have enabled homeowners to stay on top of day-to-day responsibilities. Now just by speaking you can turn on and off your lights or appliances, add things to your shopping list, look up recipes, and even set calendar reminders. Not only have these technologies made life easier but they have also eliminated the need for a tacky TV taking up space in your kitchen. You can now get news briefings, sports updates, and stock numbers at the drop of a hat even while you cook.

  1. Quartz Takes First

Quartz countertops burst onto the scene this past decade and have surpassed traditional granite. Quartz is better suited for heat, just as durable, and much less difficult to maintain. Your kitchen will have both durability and beauty. It is a refreshing transition from the darker granite prominent at the beginning of the century. For the average homeowner quartz is the

best direction to go because of its stain, scratch, and burn resistance. Whether your remodeling or building a new kitchen, quartz reigns king when it comes to countertops.
