New Kitchen Remodeling Trends for 2014

Ring in the new year with style by renovating that outdated kitchen. Tear off your old countertops and get to work; if you want to boost the value of your home and create a designer space, the kitchen is always the first room to address. With that being said, do not be afraid to try something new.

While sticking to traditional projects never hurts, keeping up with the latest designs can do a lot for your bottom line. This is especially true if you plan to sell in the near future; buyers are more attracted to properties that are modern and up-to-date so they will not need to do the job themselves. Whether you are aiming for open concept or want to add a full-length island, the choice is up to you. Have fun and make your home 2014-worthy with these trends.

Out With the Old, In With the New

  • Make the space tech-friendly – Everyone has a smart phone these days. Brands like Apple are a household name, so it only makes sense to make your home iPhone and tablet accessible. The U-Socket is a revolutionary electrical outlet that features two built-in USB charging ports in addition to the standard socket. What’s more, it also will automatically stop charging your devices once they have reached full battery state, keeping them protected and lowering your energy costs.
  • Install floating shelves – Who says your kitchen has to be boxy? More and more homeowners are minimizing their cabinetry in favor of floating shelves. These make the room appear more open and less constrained and are highly functional. For more storage and a sleek feel, ditch some of the cabinets.
  • Go bold – In terms of color, most designers agree that the top shade for 2014 is cobalt blue. It has a profound visual impact and inspires a sense of peace and comfort. A cool way to incorporate the color is by using it on the appliances while keeping your countertops a lighter color like white, cream or tan.
  • Mix materials – All-matching spaces can look cookie-cutter or lack visual interest. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, light wood cabinets and glass fixtures all together are pure eye candy and add personality to a kitchen.
  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
