From The Kitchn → Remodeling a Kitchen? 8 Trends to Avoid.
I disagree on the farmhouse sink one. Having had one once I will never go back to a smaller sink. I love, really love the size. Also dirty dishes in the bottom of it don't show in the kitchen unless you are right over the top of it. Much easier for dealing the big pans of boiling water etc.I do think the white cupboard thing is on it's way out. People are finding that they yellow and that it makes the room feel cold.I think stainless is the neutral that will stay in style.I also think quartz countertops are here to stay due to ease of cleaning, safety because they are not porous, and they just look pretty and reflect light.Laminate floors are so easy to care for and the current ones look like real wood. Get yourself a Mint floor cleaner and it is almost self-cleaning.Eat in kitchens just make so much sense.
I still love farmhouse sinks
Ha ha. When I saw the phrase "farmhouse sink" I immediately thought of this one: http://img0.signaturehardware.com/images/plumbing/2/ci-sink_a6.jpgBut hey, I think the best way to to remodel your kitchen is to not follow the trends. I personally try to follow the era of the house - might be easier to cope with if your house was built in the 20's like mine versus say the 70's. And classic looks never go out of style.
