Top Kitchen Trends for 2016

Recently, REALTOR® Magazine contributor Melissa Dittmann Tracey reviewed which kitchen design trends continue to be most popular. Luckily at Elite Homes, you can use our design center to make your new kitchen trendy! 
Not surprisingly, transitional, traditional, and contemporary styles remain the most popular, but industrial and farmhouse are picking up speed! And while neutral colors remain dominant (whites/off-whites, grays, beiges/bones), the two-tone trend is growing, with 42% of designers reporting that they’ve used a mix of color cabinets in recent remodels or mixed up the color palette by using a different countertop material for the island versus the perimeter counter space. 
If you haven’t gotten your kitchen remodel going yet, here are a few more design trends from the National Kitchen & Bath Association!
Tilt-outs and Tilt-ins for Storage. These solutions make life easier, which is why this design element will never go out of style. They are extremely functional and conserve valuable countertop or pantry space.
Wood or Tile Flooring. Wood and ceramic/porcelain tile remain the two most popular kitchen flooring materials.
Quartz and Granite Countertops. Quartz has gained considerable share in countertop preferences over the last five years. 
Coffee Stations and Wet Bars. Built-in coffeemakers and coffee/espresso stations, and integrated wine/bar areas are making themselves part of today’s kitchens.
Special Pet Spaces. Feeding stations, under-counter crate areas, pull-outs to store pet food and toys.

Docking and charging stations. People spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and the convenience of being able to charge a phone or tablet, and to play music while cooking or entertaining, is a trend that’s sure to continue.
