Stun­ning kitchen ren­o­va­tion trends to try

The Hamilton Spectator - - REAL ESTATE -

Start your reno project in the heart of ev­ery home — the kitchen. Here are some top trends de­sign­ers across the coun­try are lov­ing this year.

Colour­ful sinks. Use neu­tral shades for cab­i­nets and make the space pop with a colour­ful sink. Think bold reds, lively greens or hip or­anges to cre­ate a state­ment and kitchen fo­cal point. Apron-front sinks with au­to­mated fea­tures like a hands-free faucet round out your sink style.

Sky­lights. Did you know that sky­lights can de­liver two times the amount of day­light com­pared to ver­ti­cal win­dows? Add drama to the hub of your home and elim­i­nate the need to turn on ev­ery light dur­ing the day with a room-bright­en­ing stylish sky­light. Good day­light im­proves health, well-be­ing and per­for­mance. Velux pro­gram­mable sky­lights not only let in nat­u­ral light, they give you con­trol to air out your home and keep your kitchen fresh dur­ing and af­ter cook­ing.

Smart stor­age. Deep draw­ers out­fit­ted with or­ga­nizer slots and cab­i­nets with built-in re­cy­cling and garbage space are great for main­tain­ing a clean­ing and tidy kitchen. Stor­age walls are also gain­ing in pop­u­lar­ity, with one ded­i­cated wall hous­ing tons of stor­age room to im­prove the over­all flow of the space. Mixed coun­ter­top ma­te­ri­als. Wood is re­plac­ing gran­ite, quartz and lam­i­nate as the most fash­ion-for­ward coun­ter­top. Com­bine this warm, ver­sa­tile ma­te­rial with cool mar­ble for a con­tem­po­rary look.
