The kitchen is the heart of the home, and the kitchen island is the heart of the kitchen. It’s no surprise, then, that so many of us are looking for a way to make a splash with our islands. Yes, we want them to have key benefits like additional cabinetry and seating, but we also want them to leave a lasting impression. You can use bright colors or trending materials to make your island pop, but those might go out of style. That’s where waterfall countertops come in. As a high-end architectural feature, a waterfall countertop has staying power while still being very on-trend.
Farmhouse sinks have been all the rage for several years now. The old-world charm of farmhouse sinks, also known as apron sinks, is due to the character and functionality that they provide. Farmhouse sinks also work well in a variety of kitchen styles, ranging from rustic to modern – and they’re the perfect complement to hardwood floors in the kitchen. But are they still trendy? We asked several experts, including designers, realtors and manufacturers, to weigh in.
Ah, the kitchen. It can be the center of the home, a beloved place to share meals and make plenty of memories. It can also start to feel a little blah. Every kitchen has elements it needs – storage and appliances, for example – that leave little space for design. Or it might feel that way – until you start thinking about an accent kitchen island.
Another trend is point of use faucets. “Consumers continue to show interest in eco-friendly design and technology – like the Franke StillPure system, which tracks water usage and filter lifespan through an app that pairs with consumers’ phones,” says Jach. The Franke 3-in-1 faucet delivers hot water, cold water and distilled water to ensure that you have pure water when you need it for cooking, prepping or rinsing.
