Kitchens are both the greatest and sometimes the most frustrating parts of our homes. After all, we spend a lot of time in our kitchens. Between preparing meals and cleaning up and spending our mornings pouring over the paper while drinking a cup of coffee, there is a lot of time spent in the kitchen. However, without the right kitchen design, it can be really frustrating to spend time in your kitchen, especially if your home has a smaller kitchen area than you would prefer. How can you use a kitchen remodeling project to create a dream kitchen for you and for your family? The answer is simple enough. With the right plan in mind, you can easily make your kitchen fancy and functional at the same time while working with the space you have been given.

Use these ideas below to really make your kitchen design pop!
1. Built- In Coffee Area: Just about everyone drinks coffee; it is a powerful industry and the caffeine we crave every day has made it important to have a functional coffee maker in the home. But what if this coffee maker was built into the wall just like your oven? The latest built in coffee maker models offer this space saving function while also making delicious coffee, espresso, cappuccino, and more with just the press of a button. While the initial investment may be greater than that of a regular coffee maker, you will love making fancy coffee for friends and family in addition to saving space on your countertops with this built in model!
2. Stove Hods with Attitude: Not too long ago, stove hoods were bulky and unappealing, something that you had to have but hated to look at. Today, stove hoods are making a comeback with a vengeance; they are now designed with elegance and glamour in mind instead of the boxy looks of the not so distant past. Indeed, the latest designs feature wall mounts that are curvy and sculptural, making them easy on the eyes and even more useful with add ons like an overhead spice rack. You can see that the new push in the kitchen remodeling world is to pair looks with exceptional function and efficiency.
3. Cabinets of the Future: New cabinetry is definitely moving away from the bulky, heavy, wooden pantry looks of the past. Instead, we see a move towards greater efficiency in cabinets as well as a sleeker more finished look. The effect includes minimalist and modern designs with floating units, sliding doors, and touch latch cabinets that make hardware a thing of the past. Semitranslucent glass, bamboo, aluminum, and other materials are particularly popular in this brave new world of kitchen designs.
These are just a few of the many new kitchen remodeling trends that are becoming popular. Find the ones that best fit your personality and make them happen in your home!
