You may have already considered an island for its utility. Who doesn’t want more storage, prep space and seating in the kitchen? But even if you already have all of those in spades (lucky you!), don’t overlook this potentially powerful design element. Here are four ways you can use an accent kitchen island to transform your cooking space.
Another new finish is the Satin English matte gold finish from Perrin & Rowe. “Because of this popularity in both of these finish styles, we introduced a new Satin Unlacquered Brass,” he says. “Similar to unlacquered brass, this new finish will patina, but has a matte finish, instead of a polished shine.”
Heather Jach of the Swiss-based Franke Kitchen Systems, which manufactures luxury sinks and faucets, agrees. “Our market research,” she says, “shows that the sink selection process begins with aesthetics: consumers want to anchor their kitchen with a sink that aligns with their design vision.” Jach says they have seen an upswing in color sinks. “White and black are the most popular choices, and farmhouse sinks in all materials are rising in popularity – with a particularly strong spike in fireclay.”
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.
