And if you need help, all of us at Builder Supply Outlet and the Edge Kitchen and Bath Showroom are here to help you pick the kitchen and bathroom of your dreams for less!

LED

LED lighting continues to be applied in innovative ways. Use LEDs to illuminate a toe-kick, perk up an island, or brighten the work space beneath cabinetry.

These new-age lights are more efficient and longer-lasting than halogen and fluorescent bulbs. And they look amazing.

INTEGRATED APPLIANCES

Integrate your appliances right into your kitchen with clever paneling and built-ins. This timeless trend opens new worlds for designs. Appliances can now stand alone as a stylish statement piece or quietly recede into surrounding cabinetry.

Q QUARTZ

Quartz-surfacing countertops are gorgeous, and require less upkeep than their granite counterparts and offer timeless appeal. Plus, the shimmering surface is less dominant than other materials, so you’re unlikely to grow tired of it.

SINGLE-LEVEL ISLANDS

When keeping an open layout, single-level islands allow light to seamlessly stream through a space. Not only do counter-height islands increase the intimacy of a kitchen, they also expand valuable prep space, which is huge for a large family.

CEILING TREATMENTS

Realize the untapped potential of kitchen ceilings. For the often overlooked area overhead, shallow coffers shake up small spaces, while moldings complementing the shape of an island or work space below can help define larger kitchens.

OPEN LAYOUTS

Tear down those walls. Do away with kitchen isolation. Lighten up the area. Open layouts are here to stay. A desire for informal dining and comfortable cooking drives this design trend, supporting a casual yet connected lifestyle. Open kitchens encourage interaction and entertainment with their breezy blend of living spaces.

INDUCTION COOKING

Fast, safe, and beautiful, there are many reasons to love induction cooking. Because induction burners utilize little heat, even cramped kitchens stay cool while cooking, and surfaces remain safe to touch. Also, these cooktops eliminate the need for a large range hood, opening the door to creative design possibilities.

WHITE

White kitchens never go out of style. You’re more likely to grow tired of bold hues on major surfaces, so stick with accessories you can swap out to get that kiss of color. Consider your kitchen’s stone floor, backsplash, and trim to find the perfect shade of white for your space.

DEEP DRAWERS

Extra-deep drawers, especially by the range, make cooking and storage effortless and easy. They’re more accessible than typical base cabinetry and so simple to integrate into a beautiful kitchen design. Add-ons, like pegboard and drawer organizers, keep drawers tidy and prevent plasticware tumbles.

OPEN SHELVING

Give upper kitchen cabinets a new look. Convert them to open shelving.

CLEAN LINES

Heavy moldings and froufrou finishes are things of the past. No-frills kitchen designs with strong horizontal lines are much more enduring. One way to achieve this look is to add horizontal cabinet pulls.

SILVER

Polished silver is forever. Incorporate polished chrome or nickel into hardware, faucets, and shelf brackets for an upscale accent that endures.

WOOD-LOOK FLOORS

Hardwood floors have kept kitchens warm and cozy for years, and that won’t change anytime soon. The material adapts to any style and flawlessly unites rooms in an open floor plan. Don’t count out other flooring materials just yet, though. Porcelain planks that look like wood, provide the same inviting style, but are easier to maintain.

PRACTICAL SINKS

When it comes to sink trends, the emphasis is on function. Generous, high-performance models with a single bowl contain splashes while simultaneously accommodating large pots and pans or other items that require hand-washing.

UNDERCOUNTER APPLIANCES

As upper cabinets disappear and walls open up, appliances and storage have shifted underneath counters. This trend favors universal design principles and keeps small appliances accessible. New microwave models, including microwave drawers, load from the top for added convenience.

STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless steel continues to reign supreme in the world of appliances. With its professional and commercial roots, the enduring neutral color can easily be integrated into any kitchen style.
