Kitchen & Bath Trends 2016
Kitchen Trends 2016
- Clean lines and bright whites prevail in traditional, contemporary, or transitional designs.
- Turn your pantry into more than just food storage. When possible, add a window, small sink, and ample storage for appliances. Built-in floor toceiling shelves will maximize storage space and organization.
- Incorporate energy-efficient task & accent lighting under cabinets and around circulation paths.
- Age in place by moving more storage down, rather than keeping all cabinetry up high.
- Over-sized kitchen island with cook top, outlets, drawers, recycling pullouts, and ample seating.
- Warm color wood, or plank-style porcelain tile performs beautifully in the high traffic kitchen.
Bath Trends 2016

- Tub, shower, or both? Trends come and go, but personal preference will always win! Whether you choose to incorporate one or both you can't go wrong. Having a tub in the house will increase resale value, but it doesn't necessary have to be located in the master bathroom.
- Maximize daylight by adding a large window in the main space across from large mirrors. If possible, add a window in the water closet and walk-in closet.
- Highlight the architecture by providing ample lighting from unique light fixtures and natural daylight.
- Incorporate tile planks in rustic, or polished modern finishes for a durable, easy to clean space.
- Provide separate sinks, walk-in closets, and storage when possible to give couples flexibility in the space.
