Thinking of redesigning your kitchen and wondering what the next big trend is? Beyond your typical Stainless Steel and Granite – what is there?
Personally, I think these look really sharp and high end. Since I hate my current refrigerator, I thought I’d explore what a new fancy fridge in Black Stainless Steel might cost me…
This Kitchen Aid French door fridge (above) runs $9,399, while the LG French door fridge (below) will run you only $4,199.
Depending on your budget, if you are wanting the latest and the greatest, you might also check out brands like Wolf & Subzero as well as Viking, who both offer appliances packages in a variety of colors and with paneling that is hidden in a well matched kitchen, as shown below.
So what about the countertops – what’s trending there currently? While granite, quartz and marble are still popular options, a new surface is emerging.
Dekton is an ultra-compact surface that can be used both indoors and outdoors because it’s resistant to ultraviolet rays. It is also highly resistant to stains, features maximum resistance to heat and fire, as well as to cold and thawing, and is a fireproof material. Per the company’s website, this material “allows greater potential for installation in one piece with no cuts, no joints and no limits. It has the appeal of a completely uniform surface, which fits seamlessly into very different design styles.”
