Make Your Kitchen Feel Like a Model Home

Jessica Richardson Remodeling

There is nothing like walking into a model home. Designers pull out all the stops to dazzle homebuyers from the moment they cross the threshold.  With the today’s discerning homebuyer demanding bigger and better kitchens with high-end finishes, we’re seeing model homes turn out some truly magazine worthy kitchens.

According to Pulte Home’s design team, here are the top kitchen design trends you’ll find in their model homes this year.

1. Contrasting materials

Materials are getting mixed in the kitchen. Contrasting colors and styles are combined to create a more unique space. For example, mixed marbles and metals in a space can help highlight gray wood tones.

2. Decorative lighting

Bold and oversized lighting choices are popular choices. “Decorative lighting is key in the kitchen and adds dramatic flair as well as functionality to the kitchen, especially over the kitchen island,” according to PulteGroup’s Interior Designs Team.

3. Transparency

Switch out some cabinet doors with glass doors. It can help you extend visual boundaries while also allowing home owners to display some of their favorite things and add more personalization to a space.

4. Storage

Home owners are always looking for more storage, especially in the kitchen. Double-stacked cabinets that extend to the ceiling can help maximize storage space.

5. More drawers, less doors

Having plenty of kitchen drawers can add more functionality in storage. Home owners are showing preferences toward more drawers over extra cabinets. Bold hardware can then added to the drawers to add more design appeal, PulteGroup says.
