Cooking is a hands-on job, which is why this one-touch faucet has soared in popularity. When both hands are full, this faucet can be activated with a touch, rather than tricky levers. It also swivels 360 degrees for easy access of the entire sink, and it has a pull-down spray wand to reach even the most awkward angles. As if that weren't reason enough to add this practical faucet to your kitchen remodel, its stylish appeal works well with any decor.
Contrast has always been popular within kitchen design, but recent trends take this style preference to a whole new level. The days of clear-cut design styles have faded into an "anything goes" mentality. A great way to combine old and new design is to pair both industrial and modern elements. Light fixtures make perfect pieces for introducing additional style contrast into your space.
In the kitchen, a backsplash is a great place to introduce trendy patterns and motifs. Popular patterns for today's kitchens include chevron, brick lay, honeycomb and even penny tile. If the budget allows, extend your backsplash up the entire height of an accent wall, like this kitchen from the blog Young House Love. Make this look work by selecting a tile in a neutral color to avoid visually overpowering your space.
Keep your serving pieces front and center with the hot design trend of open shelving. Though this style requires some organization, its ease and functionality makes it a clear winner. To make this style work, group like items together when organizing your shelves. If working with colors, add pops of your accent in key places throughout your display — or keep things simple with a collection of all-white dishes.
Give your kitchen some bold personality by introducing retro appliances. These replicas of vintage style are fun and functional, and they come with all of the modern amenities. A great feature of retro appliances is the large color variety that is available. Choose seafoam green, canary yellow or even retro red for a splash of color to perk up your kitchen.
Commercial kitchens are designed for convenient cooking, but don't let professional chefs have all the fun! Bring commercial elements home with simple selection choices. Stainless steel countertops and carts make cleanup a breeze, and double ovens allow you to cook multiple dishes at once. You may also benefit from additional commercial items like butcher-block slabs, pot fillers, double-basin sinks and high-capacity appliances.
