1.  Classic white 

White is something that never goes out of style and for 2013, you can make a simple kitchen makeover by concentrating on white. This style is especially beneficial since it makes your kitchen look more hygienic too! Accenting with shades of green can give your kitchen an even fresher appeal.

 2.  Dark and solid 

Give your kitchen a modern yet tried and tested appeal by having rich dark shades. Achieve this by investing on dark wood furniture. Quality pieces will even add value to your home should you decide to resell in the future.

 3.  Glass backsplash 

Brighten up your kitchen by having glass backsplash. Reflecting more light inside your kitchen by having glass surfaces makes it more vibrant. Consider having glass on your countertops for a high shine, polished, and modern chic effect.

 4.  Techie additions to your cooking space 

Don’t be scared to add modern fixtures for your 2014 kitchen. Why not try LED lights near your cooktop or over your mini bar? Touch-activated faucets are also in. LED lights can help save more energy while your touch-activated faucets give a minimalist and modern addition to your kitchen.

1.  Neutral concentration 

A bath with combined neutral shades looks great, but concentrating on just one neutral shade is even better. Your updated bath can have a more modern look by concentrating on just one shade. Grey in particular is a great neutral to work with. Accentuate your bath by having vibrant colors like reds or greens as your color splash pieces.

 2.  Tile play 

Tiles are a major part of any bath, and you can give your bath an upgrade by making wise tile choices. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are still the top choice for bathroom tiles, but metallic tiles can give you a blast to the future feel when used as borders or accent tiles. Use them in combination, and maybe even experiment with modern mosaic effects.

 3.  Linear and minimalist 

Achieve more fluidity in your bath space by having linear design. Less is more is in for 2013, and you can make even smaller-sized bathrooms look spacious by aiming for a more linear space. Think glass wet rooms and smaller vanities with undermount instead of over the counter sinks.

 4.  Natural stone choice 

Granite has long been famous for both kitchen and bath designs for several years. However, you can update your bath surfaces by opting for quartz instead. This natural stone has a glass-like surface which is almost impervious to water. It remains skid-proof, making it ideal for your bath area even when it’s already wet.

When thinking of kitchen and bath designs for 2014, widen your horizons and feed your creative juices by considering a change of materials and colors used for these spaces. Keeping up with the trend while having a timeless appeal for your bath and kitchen isn’t an impossible feat! Try the above mentioned 2014 design trends and make your home an even lovelier place to be in.

Thanks to Topline, kitchen designers can stay on top of todays fast changing appliance offerings.

I recently attended a Thermador Kitchen Designer Night at Topline Appliances located in their Westfield, NJ Showroom. The event  was on a Thursday evening starting at 5:30 and running until about 7:30. They had the Thermador corporate chef  there preparing food as well as the area sale rep talking about the great new designer and personal use programs Thermador has launched for 2011.
