New kitchen trends are on the rise this summer, so we’ve compiled a list of ideas to inspire your new dream home at The Lakes at Centerra.

Function First

One of the most important aspects of kitchen design is space for storage. Make the most of your layout by putting overhead cabinets right up to the ceiling, rather than leaving a gap on top that collects dust. Also consider deep drawers for pots and pans, and be sure to include enough storage for appliances that may clutter countertops.

Light Utilization

Simply relying on overhead lighting in the kitchen will be insufficient. Take advantage of big windows for natural light, and also install under-cabinet lights that will shine down directly on countertops, giving you a bright and visible workspace for cooking.

Plenty of Space

You can never have too much counter space. Choose a surface that's easy to work on, care for and keep clean. For example, granite is easy to wipe down as you go, while grout between tiles can be hard to maintain and stainless steel will scratch easily.

White Is Still In

Offering a clean and simple look, white kitchens and kitchen appliances are still extremely popular. They are easier to keep clean than stainless steel, which can smudge and scratch easily. You can also add a pop of color to walls or backsplashes for a contemporary look that makes it your own.
