Natural inspiration and simple organization are key trends as homeowners consider remodels and upgrades for kitchens and baths. With natural finishes in warm colors and wood grains, bright lighting and large windows, and inspired open and closed storage, there is no better month than October to make a change that declutters and brings an outdoor feeling to these hard-working spaces.

Bath styles

Open spaces that provide organization, clean lines, and a timeless design mesh with high quality and a nature inspired palette in this fall’s bath trends. Most remodels are aimed at providing efficient storage that reduces clutter without enclosing the space. Open shelving and floating vanities are a popular choice as they create openness and options for interesting display.

Painted white and gray vanities continue to dominate for bath renovations, but natural elements and warm tones are making their appearance in quartz counters, featured walls, tile, and accessories.

Kitchen styles

Organized storage is a main driver in remodeling plans where, as with bath remodels, reducing clutter is the goal. Recent surveys show more than 90% of kitchen remodels will involve some cabinet work, with at least half of remodels replacing cabinets entirely and upgrading pantry spaces. Popular choices for these upgrades include specialized cabinet storage, such as trash/recycling drawers, swing out shelves, and spice shelves.

With the trend toward natural influences and homeowners favoring more outdoor entertaining, the tendency to open the kitchen to interior spaces has given way to opening the kitchen to outdoor patios, decks, and outdoor kitchens. Kitchen islands and dedicated workspaces continue to be popular with the added option of connecting the indoor with the outdoor.

High tech features

High tech and smart options continue to be in demand for both kitchen and bath remodels, including smart faucets, wireless controls for appliances, voice commands for showers, and dedicated areas for charging or viewing phones, tablets, and laptops.

When it comes to kitchen and bath remodels, homeowners continue to seek out convenience, quality, and opportunities to create an environment in which they can relax and entertain. At Somrak, expert design and renovation of your kitchen or bath is our specialty. Call today!
