We have successfully rung in the New Year, and have ushered out the old.  Have you kept your resolutions, or are you like the thousands who have already forgotten about them?  If dieting or changing habits isn’t in the cards for you this year, why not rejuvenate your kitchen instead?  A kitchen remodel is a great way to bring in a fresh perspective and update the feel of your home.

This year, trends are on the rise inspired from fashionistas.  The fashion world took the populace by storm mixing and matching all kinds of textures and patterns.  The interior designers have taken this concept and expanded it into more than just fabrics.  Instead, they’ve mixed and matched stone with metals, smooth surfaces with textured, and the indoors with the outdoors.

Take a look at the trending backsplash ideas.  Gone are the traditional subway tiles.  A new spin on an old classic has given us a way to create unique focal points that complement your countertops and cabinets.  Here are just a few of the ways your remodel will bring your kitchen up to date with class and elegance.

  • Dark meets light: Rich, dark colored cabinets can be accentuated with glass tiles or elongated ceramic tiles.  Choose backsplash colors that are light and airy to brighten up the room.  Long tiles will enlarge the feel of the room and can be set in various patterns that are pleasing to the eye.  Well-placed cabinet lighting will enhance the sophisticated effect.
  • Nature meets the indoors: Rustic stone, limestone, and sandstone tiles bring touches of nature into your kitchen to complement stainless steel appliances as well as your cabinets.  Smooth maple, birch, or pine cabinets paired with rough textured stone tiles bring the outdoors to you in a gorgeous display. 
  • Metal meets matte: Opt for a stunning appearance with tin, copper, or stainless steel.  Partnered with white cabinets, this look is perfect for a classic styled kitchen.   Stamped tiles offer an option to add a geometrical presentation pleasing to the eye.

Regardless of your style and tastes, a little fun mixing up the textures in your kitchen will provide you with a beautiful space in which to work.  At CJB Kitchens, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve a timeless look while incorporating current trends.  The result is a perfect updated kitchen with a luxury feel.  Our wide array of cabinets and countertops are just the first steps to rejuvenating your old kitchen.  Our knowledgeable designers work with you to design a flawless space that is functional yet gorgeous.
