At night undercabinet lighting can create a beautiful, dramatic effect with your choice on the tile backsplash. Especially with electronic dimmers and the adjustable light intensity.
The good thing about LEDs is you only need to replace them once a decade and require less electrical output. Thus saving energy and utility bill costs. And as you age and eyesight declines you have an accessible source of localized light when you're around the kitchen.
With homeowners looking for more opportunities to create natural light inside their homes, many are turning to lighter colored cabinets. With the modern trends, you'll see white or a light grey and other non-dark colors that absorb less light in many kitchen remodels.
Another popular trend is using different color cabinets between base cabinets and upper cabinets. Islands are also a good target for using an alternative color.
Homeowners are also going lighter on the countertop color during renovations. And often you'll see whites, white with greys/browns, greys with the counters.
Material-wise, quartz composite is an extremely hard surface which is difficult to damage or cut. Quartz also does not absorb stains or liquids, giving homeowners greater long-term value due to less wear and tear.
During a home remodel many residents don't want the intrusion of smelly paint, stain, or varnishes. Pre-finished cabinets come with a durable paint or stain, avoiding unnecessary fumes and added time, for a much faster installation compared to custom cabinets where delays occur with ordering them and waiting for finishes to dry.
We highly recommend NKBC cabinet components. In addition to their great customer service and fast turn around, they have an excellent product made of solid maple-no particle board ever. Their finishes are baked on, for hard, smooth easy to clean surfaces. They have a good selection of components, to customize your kitchen or bath, and all of their drawers and doors have the soft-close feature.
Homeowners are often looking for a pop in their color in their kitchen or bath remodeling. With the cleaner, neutral color choices in cabinets and countertops, you can be more adventurous with the tilework, adding color and style with the backsplash.
From Moroccan inspired designs to glossy finishes, the backsplash is where modern homes show a little extra flair.
Another option is to extend the backsplash tile up to the ceiling, reflecting more light into the kitchen and creating an accent wall.
