Depending on where you live in the United States, the design trends for homes will vary. For homes in Arizona, there are simple design trends being completed in residential neighborhoods that provide both function and style. When considering a redesign or renovation for an Arizona home, a few of these design trends can be added to provide value as well as style to the home.
Below are five design trends you should consider for your Arizona home.
1. Gray Quartz Countertops
One of the top color trends of 2019 is gray. When it comes to your kitchen countertops, why not add a touch of gray with quartz? Quartz countertops offer a durable material and can provide both style and function to your home. Easily have new gray quartz countertops installed to give your kitchen a completely new look! Pair the countertops with white cabinets for a lovely pop of color.
2. Under Cabinet Lighting
Late-night trips to the kitchen are much more enjoyable when you have soft lighting installed. Add extra lighting to the kitchen by installing under cabinet fixtures. Small fixtures can be added underneath the cabinets of your kitchen for more lighting. The fixtures can be hard-wired or battery operated with some even offering motion detection, so the lights come on right when someone enters the room!
3. Hardwood Flooring
To add character and charm to your kitchen, hardwood flooring is key. For 2019 Arizona homes, hardwood flooring is a must-add. The flooring type is durable and comes in a variety of textures and colors. Choose a grey wood floor or distressed option to achieve a farmhouse feel, another major trend this year for kitchen spaces!
4. Functional Chalkboards
Add a fun element to the kitchen by installing a functional chalkboard. This also adds to the farmhouse look and can be done in a variety of ways. Use chalk paint to add a feature wall that can be used for writing notes, dinner menus, etc. The chalk paint is perfect when you have a blank narrow wall in the kitchen.
You can also hang a small chalkboard in the kitchen and use it daily. Alert the family of what’s for dinner or plans for the day with the board.
5. Don’t Forget the Little Details
In the kitchen, there are many little details that make a huge difference in the design. The little details must be remembered to get the biggest impact in the space. Take, for example, the cabinet hardware. Change out this hardware for something new and watch as your cabinets are transformed. Add a completely different handle to your cabinets and drawers. Even though it is a small change, it does make a big impact. Other small changes can include new light fixtures and faucets.
Corey Tyner from Phoenix Fast Sell agrees that “little details in a kitchen can greatly impact the overall room and increase the value of a property based on the visual appeal.”
These are just a few of the current design trends for Arizona homes. Complete a few or all of these changes to see your kitchen space truly transformed! You will be surprised at how lovely your kitchen is with these changes.
