A recent article in Forbes highlighted 9 trends expected to come on strong in kitchen design for 2016.  Among them,  soft, muted color palettes.  As outlined in the story:

Trend #1 — Soft, muted color palettes. Good news if you’re already thinking about switching up your color scheme: Kitchen colors are changing, according to interior designer Jane Lockhart. Though white motifs will still dominate, everything from cabinets to backsplashes will be done in less saturated tones. “Charcoal, grays and even neutral pastels like pale blue, pale green gray and tinted whites are the new alternative to the standard white,” she says. She also foresees kitchens sporting lighter wood tones, including walnuts, whitewashed woods and white oak in rift grain.

Other trends include  smart spaces, even more innovations for integrated kitchen-living spaces and more.

NARI NAR report article 2015 Remodeling Impact Report Highlights Key Reasons for Remodeling  © 2009 Habersham HomeThe National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently released their 2015 Remodeling Impact Report and it has some interesting finings.   As reported in Kitchen & Bath Business, the survey uses data about remodel costs and resale value from home improvements to examine  personal satisfaction from remodeling projects.

The survey looked at 20 remodeling and replacement projects to determine reasons for remodeling, the success of taking on projects and the increased happiness generated from project completion.

The study found that homeowners remodel for a variety of reasons, including:

–Upgrading worn-out surfaces, finishes and materials (38 percent)

–Adding features to improve livability (17 percent)

–Just because it’s time for a change (13 percent)

Post-remodel satisfaction numbers were high. After remodeling, homeowners:

–Felt a major sense of self accomplishment (75 percent)

–Found a greater desire to being their home (74 percent)

–Reported increased enjoyment in their home (64 percent)

These post-remodel results are  the types of results we love to see from our own clients!  To learn more, visit kbbonline.com and go to the story link —  http://bit.ly/1ZYwWqP
