Have you been recently thinking about giving your kitchen a complete makeover? Trends are changing fast and it is always easy to become outdated if you do not keep up. NKBA regularly carries out surveys to establish the leading trends in kitchen remodeling. Here are the top five emerging trends that you could use to renovate your kitchen.
1. Change In Wood Preference
The smooth, dark finish of the cherry wood is no longer in fashion. The current trend is to use lesser-used wood like oak, bamboo, alder and birch. You can now use these woods in your kitchen for the cabinets, counter-tops and even paneling. Oak is a top pick. It is durable and will last you a lifetime. You can keep these woods in their natural colour and texture or paint them to give your kitchen a warm look.
2. Use Of Dark Tones
Dark finish of the kitchen cabinets and other woodwork is the current trend. You can wax up the wood for a dark finish instead of keeping the natural finish of the wood top. The dark finish gives your kitchen a bold look if you have neutral or white kitchen walls. If you are using wood like bamboo and oak, you could incorporate the distressed look.

3. Back-splashes in Glass And Ceramic
The easiest way to change the look of your kitchen is to work on your kitchen backsplash. Use the current trends and do up your kitchen back-splash to give your kitchen a brand new look. The latest trend is to use glass and ceramic for the back-splash. You can have a smooth glass finish or use tempered glass.
If you are changing the back-splash, use the same material for the kitchen countertops as well. So, if you are using a beautiful granite counter, you can have a granite back-splash. Chuck out those boring ceramic tiles and use the trendy glass, granite or quartz back-splash to renovate your kitchen.
4. LED Lighting
Use LED lighting for your kitchen. You will be able to save electricity and give your kitchen a trendy look at the same time. You can fit the lights inside your cabinets and shelves to give them an edgy look. You could make your kitchen look gorgeous if you have granite or glass counter-tops and paneling. The LED lights will get reflected on the surface and give the kitchen a very sophisticated appeal.
5. Innovative Faucets
Since you are already changing your backsplash, cabinets, counter-tops, why should you stop from changing your humble faucets. These are an important part of your kitchen and use of innovative designs can only enhance your kitchen’s appeal. Use pull out faucets that are sleek and trendy to look at.
