Kitchen Confidential



Organization and de-cluttering are top priorities.
-Seventy-five percent of homeowners want clutter-free countertops, and 63 percent said adequate storage was the most important feature in a kitchen. Custom storage options have become popular, especially pullout waste and recycling bins, utensil and dish organizers, and wine/bar cabinets.

Countertops are getting a new look.
-Countertops are the most commonly upgraded feature in the kitchen (94 percent), as well as the one homeowners are most willing to splurge on. Engineered quartz has also gained popularity over granite.

Open layouts are in. 
-Half of renovating homeowners open their kitchen to other interior spaces, with a completely open transition or double doors being the most common. One in 5 homeowners made their kitchen more open to the outdoors, usually by installing exterior doors.

Design is transitional.
-Iconic styles such as modern and traditional are falling out of favor as homeowners lean toward transitional, contemporary and farmhouse styles. And they are choosing shaker-style and flat-panel cabinets over raised-panel.

But what about color?
-White is a predominant color chosen for cabinets, countertops, walls and backsplashes , while wood is the top choice for floors. Natural wood continues to be most popular, but is on the decline as homeowners are choosing engineered wood or laminate flooring.
