Kitchen and bath month is in large part about the materials - the tile, the color of wood, the finishes. What is in style in these rooms changes over time, sometimes drastically, hence all the rehabs of pink-tiled bathrooms. A contemporary home in Chicago features a compendium of currently in vogue bath and kitchen materials...

...dark wenge wood cabinets, shiny white countertops, stainless steel accents, glass, chrome and river rocks. This is clearly a very high end project, but if you like the look, it is getting easier and easier to find these materials and incorporate them into jobs done on a budget.
