Don’t Fall Victim to Hot Trends in Gilbert Kitchen Remodels

If you’re up for a full Gilbert kitchen remodel, there are some things that you need to know, especially when it comes to kitchen trends. What’s trendy and popular today in Gilbert might not be so in a few years, and unless you want to run a full Gilbert kitchen remodel every couple of years, it’s best to select a theme and materials that will withstand the test of time. Let the experts at Capital Mark Granite and Cabinet help you out with making these complicated decisions.

Gilbert Cabinets

Step One – Understand the function of your Gilbert kitchen. It is a place where friends and family gather? Do you do a lot of entertaining? Do you actually cook? Do the kids use it for homework? Is there always a laptop or even a desktop in the kitchen? Understanding the actual function of your kitchen can help you determine how the Gilbert kitchen remodel will run. If you need a homework or work space in the kitchen, keep that built-in nook and desk. If you use it more for entertaining and that small nook has become nothing more than a place to pile papers, get rid of it in the kitchen remodel and put that space to better use.


Step Two – Determine which trends are actually functional and serve a purpose. For example, the backsplash is a huge trend in Gilbert kitchen remodels, but will it be around in another three years? Well, this trend actually does serve a purpose, by helping to keep that space clean, keeping the dust build-up down, and helping to get rid of those bumps and scratches that always occur on that back wall. This trend might be around for some time.


Step Three – Understand how important the microwave is compared to storage space. A hot trend right now is to place the microwave under the counter. Microwave drawers are extremely popular right now because they open up storage space in the cabinets above the countertops, and remain hidden at all times. This might seem like a novel idea, however, keep in mind how often you use the microwave and for what purposes. If you’re constantly bending over to place heavy items in the microwave, you might not consider this kitchen trend.


Step Four – Keep appliances simple. Today, appliances come in all the colors of the rainbow. In Gilbert, you can get appliances to match any color scheme that you have in your home. However, though the trend might be to color coordinate your walls and accessories with your appliances, the practicality of this trend is missing. In a few years, when you get tired of the color of your Gilbert kitchen and want to change it, you’ll have to buy entirely new kitchen appliances. Now, if you want to spend a few thousand every year on new kitchen appliances, by all means, get the colors. But, if you are thinking practically and hoping to have the same appliances last more than a few years, stick with the stainless steel. It matches everything.
