Subtle, greyish walls and muted colored countertops, high end beverage centers, seaswept wood and natural woood appliances in burnt umber, teal and other bright retro colors for contrast are the hottest design trends in kitchen remodeling, according to trend forecasters.

Check out those these new, updated looks:

• Darker Shades of greys. Stark white kitchens have been the popular, but are waning.
A lot of designers are making things more unqiue by using greys, taupey-beige and “greige,” a combo of the 2), according to the NKB Association’s Style Report. These neutral look can be a new warm classic and are great backdrop for brighter, standout colors.


Get this kitchen design look without any real remodeling. One of the simpler ways to give your kitchen remodeling plan a chic vibe is to paint the walls, backsplash or cabinets a neutral shade of grey. Get wild with a metallic grey.


But you must do the right way , or grey can end up giving your kitchen a sad, cold industrial look. Worse yet, you might end up with a 1980s post modern look. Think Beetlegeuse!
\1 manner in order to warm things up is to group grey with natural woody tones or vibrant accent colors such as poppy, tangerine or yellow. And be sure to choose a semi-gloss paint, which is the smart finish for a kitchen because it’s easy to clean.

Kitchen Remodel – Testimonial


When Morningside resident Connie Casavant wanted the kitchen remodeled in her bungalow, she turned to Earl Miller Construction of North Sioux City.

“I had read write-ups about Earl Miller Construction in the paper and I had friends who had used Earl Miller. I got a response when I called and Earl Miller would get back to me to talk to me,” said Casavant. “It was the same with the workers. It was nice.”

Casavant wanted her kitchen to be more open, so Earl Miller Construction with Terry Northrup as project manager removed a wall and put in a new header. A built-in china hutch and closet was removed to create a dining area that was more livable.

They also installed all new kitchen cabinets from House of Kitchens, LTD, new DuraCeramic flooring by Congoleum which extended into the newly created dining area, a custom backsplash, canned and pendant lights, and new GE appliances from Kollman Appliance. In addition, they moved the kitchen sink so it faced the dining room, put an air switch on the garbage disposal to prevent electrocution, and put plug-ins inside cabinets for a TV and a radio. The electrical work was performed by Vakulskas Electric.

Casavant got inspiration for her kitchen remodel from a Better Homes & Gardens magazine and Terry advised her along the way.

“He really helped me. I showed him the picture and he did what I asked. He also helped with the DuraCeramic flooring and the carpet.”

The crew, which also included Steve Leonard and Nick Korleski, finished at the same time every day, making it easy for Casavant to make plans to be out of the way.

“They were really great,” she said. “I was apprehensive at first because I was here by myself, but Earl assured me his crew would be polite, and they were. If I have another project, I would ask to have them back.”

DIY Kitchen Makeover

DIY Kitchen Makeover

These are some simple tips in which home owners can consider the next time they want to redecorate their kitchen

1 Use quality materials.
Top-quality drawer slides and hinges mean cabinet doors will stay closed and drawers won’t stick. Stay away from drawers that are stapled together or made of particleboard. For cabinet interiors, wood veneer is more durable than melamine, laminate, MDF or particleboard.

2 Determine cabinet heights.
If you have eight-foot ceilings, choose cabinets that go to the ceiling. They offer more storage, enabling you to use extra wall space for artwork or open shelves. If your ceilings are higher than eight feet, leave 15 to 18 inches above the cabinets.

3 Decide whether to paint or stain.
Though stained-wood cabinetry is forgiving, most finishes date quickly and aren’t easily altered. Brush-painted cabinets can lend a unique personality.

4 Select an elegant countertop.
White Carrara marble (honed or acid washed and sealed) and stained wood add elegance and warmth. We also like honed Kirkstone slate, soapstone and Wiarton limestone, and plastic laminate with a wood edge for a sophisticated look.

5 Install an island that works.
Beware of placing a bulky cube in the middle of the room. We like islands that have an open, airy look. Ideally, an island should be unencumbered by appliances, but if you want it to house a dishwasher-sink combo or a cooktop, try to maintain the light look of a leggy harvest table.

2015 Tips for Kitchen Remodeling on a tight Budget

Another Christmas season has passed by, and along with it the extended cooking and baking sessions. The many days spent using all kitchen appliances and every inch of counterspace had a potential highlight more lasting than a home cooked meal: When consumers really use their kitchens, theydiscover what does and doesn’t work.

kitchen cabinets

A smoothly functioning kitchen has space for everything to be stored away, within reach. Can you achieve that with your current cabinets? If so, Flynn suggests keeping them and just replacing or refinishing the doors.
“Cabinetry installation adds a lot to a budget,” he says, “so saving by simply reusing what you’ve got can be a massive help.”
If your cabinet doors are stained wood, consider painting them. Then change the hardware. Drawer pulls and cabinet door handles “can make or break the look of the space,” says Jimmy Meyers, of the Boston-based design firm Hearth.
If you do need to add or replace cabinets, Meyers suggests having them custom-made. It can be expensive, but they are worth the investment, she says. “You’ll get well-made pieces, built to your needs, that will last through time, kids and tons of use.”
Rather than adding cabinets with doors, she suggests installing drawers.
Painting kitchen walls can be “a quick, inexpensive solution to a kitchen remodel,” Kleinhelter says, and “any color can work.” But she advises clients that kitchen decor “should work with the rest of the house.” Bring in colors that appear in nearby rooms or stick to a neutral palette.
If you’re trying to update your kitchen’s look, Meyers says “there’s been a shift from the once-ubiquitous all-white kitchen toward gray-painted cabinets, and we’ve found ourselves experimenting with color.”
Homeowners are also getting more creative and saving money with materials such as concrete. Concrete tile is “an inexpensive material that comes in an incredible array of colors and patterns,” Meyers says.
