Here’s What’s Trending for Kitchen Renovations

Planning to renovate your kitchen? You’ll want to know the latest trends. Houzz recently conducted a survey of 2,380 U.S. homeowners to learn about their kitchen renovation plans and preferences. Here are some of the most interesting findings:

Sustainability Tops the List
Ninety-two percent of those surveyed said they incorporate sustainable features when they’re doing a kitchen renovation, with LED bulbs and energy-efficient appliances being the most popular choices. Water-efficient fixtures and energy-efficient windows are also becoming increasingly common. Homeowners are motivated by both the long-term cost savings and the environmental benefits of making eco-friendly choices.

Cabinet Options
If you’re planning to replace your cabinets, it’s worth noting that Shaker-style doors remain the most popular choice. However, flat-panel doors are becoming more popular, with 20% of renovators opting for them. When it comes to cabinet pulls, bar pulls are the most popular, followed by knobs and cup pulls.

White cabinets are still the most popular choice for renovated kitchens, but wood-tone cabinets are gaining in popularity. In addition, more homeowners are opting for island cabinets with a color that contrasts the color of the main cabinets. Blue and gray are becoming less popular, while black, medium-tone wood, and dark wood are becoming more popular.

Most Homeowners Enlist a Pro
Are you considering a professional for your renovation? You’re not alone. Eighty-four percent of survey participants worked with a pro for their project. General contractors were the most in demand, but cabinetmakers are also becoming more popular, with 32% of homeowners hiring them this year. And if you want to add some high-tech features to your kitchen, you’re in luck: Wireless speakers, docking stations, and touch-free faucets are all becoming increasingly popular.
