Lightly Colored, Highly Functional Kitchen Appliances

Kitchen Trends for 2011

If you’re remodeling your kitchen or simply updating the design you currently have, here’s a  list of fun kitchen trends to look out for once the ball drops in a little more than a month!

Bright Appliances.

Colorful appliances and cooking accouterments can add an unexpected element of fun to your kitchen. They are an easy way to breathe life into an otherwise bland kitchen. Kitchenaid offers a wide array of colorful countertop appliances, including stand mixers, blenders, and toasters in a spectrum of eye-popping colors. There’s something delicious about the nostalgia these vintage-inspired items arouse.

Kitchen and Living Room in One

Family life is often centered in the kitchen, so it seems natural that as old homes are remodeled and modern homes are built we have seen a trend towards large kitchens that open to the living room. That way parents can keep an eye on the types of things their children are watching on TV or searching on the internet, not to mention that an open setup provides for more time spent together in a happily unified household.

Eco-friendly Appliances

As the economy continues to lag and people begin to focus more and more on ways to help save the earth, environmentally friendly appliances have become even more prevalent in kitchen remodeling and design. Environmentally friendly appliances, like those with an EnergyStar label, will reduce the amount of energy needed to keep your home running, resulting in lower energy bills for you.

    When people buy new appliances they have a habit of buying what looks good in the store and not what looks good in their kitchen. Please remember that the color of the appliance has to match your kitchen. It’s an awful experience to get home and find that the lovely new appliance doesn’t match your countertop.
