Trends to Avoid During A Kitchen Remodel in Denver

It’s important for homeowners to choose classic styles during a kitchen remodel in Denver. Why? A kitchen will quickly look dated if you decide to go with what’s trendy instead of what’s timeless. If you don’t make timeless choices, you may be forced to remodel again to keep up with changing trends. To ensure you are satisfied with your kitchen for years to come, it’s best to avoid these design trends:

Hanging Pot Racks
Many homeowners place pot racks over their kitchen islands so their pots and pans are always accessible. This may make it easier to grab a pot or pan in a hurry, but hanging pot racks above the kitchen island makes the entire space seem cluttered. The hanging pot rack becomes the focal point of the room and distracts from other beautiful features such as the luxurious marble countertops or backsplash design. Timeless kitchens are minimalistic and free from clutter, so this is a trend that you should avoid if you want a classic-looking kitchen.

Brass Hardware
Brass hardware is incredibly trendy right now, so it may be tempting to incorporate this look into your new kitchen. However, it’s important to remember that brushed or satin nickel hardware is far more timeless than brass hardware. But fortunately, hardware is fairly easy to replace, so if you want to incorporate this trend now, it won’t be difficult to update it later on.

Colored Appliances
Most appliances are silver, black, or white, but there are a few other colors that are usually added to the mix every year. Buying a bright green or red appliance may seem like the perfect way to add a splash of color to your kitchen, but it’s not a good idea if you want to design a timeless kitchen. Colored appliances will most likely need to be replaced in a few years after this trend is no longer popular, so play it safe by sticking with traditional colors. Read 9 kitchen design trends to absolutely avoid.

Tiled Countertops
Recently, tiled countertops have made somewhat of a comeback. These countertops may look unique, but they’re not practical for the kitchen. Tiled countertops require much more maintenance than granite or marble countertops due to the grout between each tile. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time cleaning your kitchen countertops after preparing dinner every night, use tile on the floor, not on the counter.

Industrial Design
The industrial design style is characterized by exposed ducts and light bulbs, stainless steel metal, and the use of wrought iron. Although this look is trendy now, it will not be in style forever. It’s best to incorporate elements of this design style, such as light fixtures with exposed bulbs, without going overboard if you want your kitchen to look timeless.
