Article by Pembroke Tile & Stone
The kitchen and bathroom are the two most used rooms in the house, frequented by both family members and guests. You want them looking their best, no matter their size. If you’re considering a complete remodel or quick refresh of these rooms, take a look at what’s currently trending for inspiration.
Quartz – functional and fashionable - Consider using quartz for counter tops – it’s fresh, sophisticated and has countless finish options. Nonporous and resistant to heat, quartz countertops are also resistant to spills and scratches, making them a smart choice for families or busy cooks, as well as creating a sleek, contemporary look.
Brass – organic modernism - Tasteful and bold, brass fixtures are one design element that may never go out of style. Brass tones add a warmer aesthetic to a kitchen or bathroom resulting in a classic look that’s not ostentatious. Start small with fixtures such as drawer pulls and knobs or make a statement with pendant light fixtures.
Stone Sinks – back to nature - While traditional porcelain will always be a classic, beautiful hand-carved stone sinks bring timeless charm to a kitchen or bathroom. Functional and elegant, natural stone has its own unique appeal and these refined designer sinks will become the focal point of any room.
The New Cabinets – all white is out - Bold coloured cabinets, such as blue or dark gray, alongside white/ neutral cabinetry, create a great visual impact to a kitchen’s space. The colour diversity points out specific parts of your kitchen that you especially like and the whole room looks better organized and chic. This look can appear contemporary or traditional, depending on your colour and cabinetry choices.
Color – bright and happy - From cabinets to faucets, appliances, and even sinks, safe reliable white is out and vibrant tones are in. It’s a great way to inject a small amount of colour into a neutral kitchen or make colour a focal point by using complimentary hues in a backsplash. If you’re feeling adventurous, be bold with your choices. Deep blues are leading the trend, but the only limit is your imagination.
Tile – don’t be square - Create interest and character in your kitchen and bathroom with tile. Mosaic tile in a range of exotic shapes is now being used to cover walls and floors and with sensational results. Or make a statement with decorative patterned tile, which is surprisingly versatile. If you prefer a more organic look, porcelain tile is now available in a range of rustic textures and sophisticated metallics – perfect for floors, backsplashes or statement walls.
