No longer just a room to cook and serve food, we use our kitchens to gather & socialize, help with homework, take phone meetings and so much more. As such, kitchen home improvement trends change regularly and help not only to modernize your space, but can add to your home’s resale value. Whether you’re a DIYer or you hire a contractor, below are the hottest kitchen home improvement projects for 2023 and beyond!
Kitchen Home Improvement Projects to Increase your Home’s Value
Dark Colors: While white kitchens are considered a timeless, classic trend they are slowly transitioning out of style. Dark shades of blue, greens and even purples can be stylishly incorporated through accent pieces, painted cabinets or deep countertops.
Ceramic Flooring: Ceramic tiles are a durable, easy to maintain and affordable option to upgrade your kitchen floors. Best of all, they come in a wide variety of designs and styles. Some options can even mimic other flooring such as hardwood, natural stone or custom-cut tiles.
Touchless Faucets: This kitchen home improvement trend is simple to install as a weekend DIY project. No matter the style or color scheme of your current kitchen, there are endless options for touchless faucets. From voice activated to touch-tap, matte or brushed finished, this upgrade can help you make you more productive in the kitchen.
Quartz Countertops: If 2021 has you dying to upgrade your kitchen countertops, C&R Building Supply recommends switching to quartz material. Not only is it substantially more affordable than its main competitor granite, but it also affords you many benefits including beauty, anti-microbial, durability and more.
Specialty Organizing Cabinets: Cabinets are drawers come equipped pull out waste/recycling bins, utensil holders, cookie tray holders, dish racks and all of our other organizing needs.
High-Tech Appliances: Appliances with wireless and smartphone controls make life so much easier for homeowners. You can turn on the coffeemaker, set the temperature on the oven or add an item to your refrigerator grocery list all from the couch or on the go.
Long Kitchen Islands: Many homeowners are opting for longer islands (up to 7ft. long!), especially if they have limited counter space. Not only will you have more room to cook & prep, but you’ll gain added storage space for appliances, pots/pans and more.
Statement Stools: Incorporate stools into your island for added seating for eating or entertainment. These stools can add a pop of color, modern touch or a bold statement.
Herringbone: Incorporate this beautiful, modern pattern into fancy flooring, backsplash tile or cabinetry.
Outdoor Elements: Indoor/outdoor living is a trend that is surly here to stay. Creative ways to connect your kitchen to an outdoor space include installing a glass door to easily connect outdoor entertainment space. If your home cannot accommodate such an improvement, consider installing a 6 foot wide window above your sink and adding greenery elements.
