While we all know that construction costs are currently higher than usual due to COVID-19, there are many ways you can still create your Texas dream kitchen without going into debt. We suggest picking and choosing one or two moderate upgrades to tackle at a time in order to keep costs down while still freshening up your space. Before you make a decision on which upgrade to select first, let’s go over some of the trends we’re currently seeing in College Station.
Homeowners are renovating cabinetry, adding more storage spaces and upgrading the pantry (not a huge surprise since more of us have been spending time cooking at home this past year). Nearly all who added or upgraded an island included at least some storage. Most popular storage consists of cabinets with doors and drawers, but some are adding a few shelves of open storage.
Bring on the Backsplash
If you were going to guess that white subway tile is still a huge favorite, you would be correct! White subway tile is still the top choice, statement backsplashes with multicolored tiles are quickly on the rise. Another growing trend is to extend quartz countertops all the way up the wall to the upper cabinets. What if you don’t have upper cabinets? Consider taking the backsplash tile all the way to the ceiling.
WPC vinyl flooring is one of the most popular types of flooring at the moment. It’s rigid, stable and stylish, available in vinyl planks or tiles that are 100% waterproof (perfect for those spills in the kitchen!) and completely modern. Also, modern printing technology can generate ceramic tile that looks exactly like wood.
