Oak wood cabinetry is starting to creep back into the kitchen and bathroom marketplace with Cerused and driftwood finishes. In the 1970’s well into the early 90’s, they were the cabinet of choice. Usually seen in a honey spice stain, a version of a raised panel cathedral door with wild grain patterns became the mainstay in many homes at that time. After a much-needed departure, the popularity of maple, cherry and a rise of engineered wood alternatives reduced the use of oak cabinet constructions. Materials like wood veneer and painted MDF are now more common in cabinet door construction than ever. But as with other parts of the house, many homeowners are seeking connections to their past and a renewed attention to vintage, with kitchens being no different.
LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colors and the bulbs last for a really long time. This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance. LED is not the only type of lighting that can be fixed under the cabinet. You could opt for fluorescent fixtures, which are almost as energy efficient as LED and produce minimal heat. Xenon lights give off some heat but they can be dimmed and have an attractive warm glow. You could also go with halogen lights, but this is not always a good idea. They give off too much heat which could affect foods or drinks you have stored inside the cabinet.

Focused on functionality, today’s kitchens are being designed with large single bowl sinks or with multiple sinks. Since handwashing dishes isn’t a regular occurrence in households these days, the need for a double bowl sink is less important. In part, the farmhouse design has become extremely popular. Farmhouse sinks are popular mostly for their large deep sizes, that allows for more comfortable use, and style. If the apron front sink doesn’t fit into your design, then opt for a single bowl undermount sink in the same width as a double bowl. These sinks are perfect for larger items such as cookie sheets, stockpots, and skillet handles. For those of us that receive unexpected guests, you can quickly stow dirty dishes out of sight in these generous sink basins. In addition to the main sink, you might find an additional prep sink at the end of a run or in the kitchen island. This allows multiple people to work in the kitchen at the same time.
