The surprising leading color trend for 2016 is – – – white! A muted subtle white serves as a neutral backdrop for other dramatic elements. It brings calm and serenity into any room and gives the effect of a clean, bright, and uncluttered environment. A white backdrop provides a place to unwind. White is being used in kitchen design, as well as, walls throughout the home. According to Benjamin Moore, “Simply White” (which has a bit of yellow undertone to it) will be 2016’s most popular color.
White kitchen cabinetry is back, a take from the 90s. If you are considering selling your current home, the kitchen is the best room to update. Buyers consider this room the most important so if you are considering renovations to be able to sell your home for the best possible price, start here. Have a professional glaze the cabinetry, replace outdated countertops with quartz or granite, add an updated Farmers sink and fixtures to match, and update appliances to Stainless Steel. The best money spent and recouped in the sale, is in the Kitchen.
