The highly anticipated moment has come, 2020 is officially behind us. A new year means a fresh look at design. In 2020 we saw the rise of bold colored cabinetry. From capri drift to charcoal blue we saw several jobs leave our warehouse that employed at least a little pop of color. As we go in to this year those trends seem to be following. However, we’re now seeing even more diversity in solid color offering from our cabinet lines. If you’re considering a kitchen remodel this year it might be worth considering at least one of these trendy colors:
Yorktowne Cabinetry in our showroom at 72nd and Q. Dearborne/Dixon door style in “Island Sheer” from the Iconic Series. Click here to see all of the colors Yorktowne offers.
Green: If you’re looking to bring an earthy or natural vibe into your home, green cabinets might be the move to make. Darker emerald greens pair well with butcher block countertops and bold bronze or gold hardware. Lighter mint greens can give your space more of a retro or calming feel.
Blue: You can take blue one of two ways, lighter and more serene or darker and more sophisticated.
Pastels: Lighter color cabinetry can bring a vintage vibe into your kitchen. If you aren’t feeling like a whole kitchen of pastel cabinets is for you, no worries we don’t blame you. However, using a pastel for an island or for a hutch away from the splashes could turn your kitchen from a utility space to a conversation starter. You can’t deny though, that entirely pastel blue kitchen sure is pretty.
Feel free to call us or click here to schedule an appointment with one of our designers to see how you can get some funky colored cabinetry into your kitchen or bathroom.
As with any bathroom design, invest in a good shower, toilet and sink with a vanity cabinet. Make sure there is a mirror and decent lighting for people to get ready. A bathtub probably won’t be necessary in your guest bathroom design unless you anticipate visitors with small children. While you can experiment with color in the master bathroom, it’s best to adhere to a neutral or monochrome palette in the guest bath. Play with textures and shapes and incorporate a statement piece but try to appeal to everyone’s taste.
You’re not running a hotel, but it’s still nice to add luxe extras for your guests to enjoy during their stay. They’ll probably bring basic toiletries but put out a basket of high-end pampering products as well as supplying essentials they may have forgotten. Have a plush robe on hand for each person in addition to fluffy towels in different sizes, remembering to hang hooks or rails for them to dry on. Candles and diffusers give a welcoming feel and show your guests that you’ve taken the time to make them feel special.
While it’s important to show visitors that everything is at hand, things should be displayed with thought and presented meticulously. Open shelving is the best solution as people can find what they need without rooting around. When displaying items, sort them into groups and then vary their size, to give an ordered yet interesting look. Hairdryers and toilet paper can go in a little vanity included in your customized bathroom design storage. If open shelves isn’t an option our designers can make sure we’re maximizing the bathroom countertop space you’ll have.
Remember to leave some space free when planning your remodel. Guests will appreciate having somewhere to put their own essentials. Resist the urge to accessorize too much. Guests might have to move a bowl of potpourri to clear space for their medications and essential toiletries! Also, remember that this is not a room to store your extra things. It should be a dedicated room for guests, at least while they are staying with you. A linen cabinet along with a vanity cabinet will offer plenty of space for your guests items.
Think about who will be coming and for how long. Bathroom rugs are a good idea to prevent elderly people slipping on a tiled floor. If your guests are long-term visitors (more than a few days) then include a laundry basket for them to use. Don’t forget extra touches like plungers, air neutralizers and extra toilet paper, to avoid potential embarrassment. This also applies to your frequently used powder room.
