Market Reports Change in Trends

This large center island is a requested element in many modern kitchens.

The downward plunge in the US Economy left many builders and homeowners feeling whip-lashed.  Home renovations slowed and projects that pushed forward were smaller and more conservative. As the market gains strength, researchers are seeing a rise in kitchen renovation and a few new trends.

Kitchens are still the number one hot commodity in homes. Buyers and renovators are focusing on projects that promote sustainable living such as recycling centers, recycled flooring, countertops and backsplashes from post-consumer and renewable content, LED lighting, and water-saving faucets and energy saving appliances.

Non-eco-centered projects include large islands, ample pantry space, computer nooks, and an open floor plan that flows into the living room or other entertainment areas.

There are a few luxuries that are gaining popularity as well. Heated floors, plate warmers, wine centers and television installations are becoming more common in high-end homes.
