So what do the experts see on the horizon for kitchen remodeling in Philadelphia and beyond? Here are a few key trends that are here now and a few that are coming to a kitchen near you soon.
First let’s talk about what is main stream right now and how it is evolving.
Trend 1: High contrast. The juxtaposition of bright whites and deeper colors is softening. The white is more a creamy white and the deeper colors are mid-range not really dark
Trend 2: 2 is the new 3. It used to be that we would see everything (think pendent lights) in threes, now it is 2’s or even a large single.
Trend 3: White on white. This means you will see white cabinetry with white countertops and backsplash. This trend has even evolved to include layers of texture; it is not as stark as it was.

Emerging Trend 1: Black. It is coming back to kitchens often with a medium brown complement or a color.
Emerging Trend 2: Brushed Brass. We see plumbing fixtures in this finish and even being mixed in the same Philadelphia kitchen remodel with stainless.
Emerging Trend 3: Oak. This is not your 80’s oak kitchen. It has more texture like quarter sawn and rift cut.
Emerging Trend 4: Mirrors. They are appearing in cabinetry and backsplashes. It makes the space look more open.
Emerging Trend 5: Industrial vintage. This includes beams, brickwork, exposed pipes etc. This gives a contemporary space a warmer feel.
Emerging Trend 6: Texture. This means adding natural elements into a contemporary look; it has more texture giving modern a richer feel.
