If all of the renovation decisions regarding your home have been based around the concept of resale value, give yourself a break! Homeowners around the nation are making structural and cosmetic changes to their homes based on their own comfort, taste, and special needs while still adding value to their property.
Trending in Kitchen & Bath
The NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) conducts a yearly Design Trends Survey to find out what features and styles are most popular. Here are the top 10 overall kitchen design trends the NKBA surveyed as most favored for 2016.
- Transitional kitchen style, with contemporary style emerging.
- Gray/white/off-white cabinets.
- Pull-outs, tilt-outs and tilt-ins for storage.
- Wood flooring.
- Quartz and granite countertops.
- Outdoor kitchens.
- Built-in coffee stations and wet bars.
- Pocket doors.
- Special pet spaces.
- Docking and charging stations.
Although trends come and go, some tend to stay around for much longer. Design trends based on good design rather than decorative “bells-and-whistles” typically stand the test of time. So the question is, how should I design my kitchen for my own comfort while maintaining budget and resale value?
Alliance Group is always willing to price-engineer our quotes by switching out variables until our customers are happy with their design and the contract price. We believe you should have a functional kitchen and bath space that is attractive and durable. We carry Adornus cabinetry, a company based in Doral, Florida who produces a range of cabinet styles all in formaldehyde-free plywood boxes.

Adornus also has a Euro-style line, Lusso Cucina for those seeking a contemporary minimalist style.
Transitional Kitchen Style
The four cabinet styles and colors below will give your kitchen style the foundation for a classic look. Appliances, flooring, backsplash, and countertops should also be chosen with care, but there is more flexibility here as you may be replacing a sink or refrigerator when it’s time to sell anyway depending on the item’s wear. Cabinet accessories, lighting, seating, and decor are the variables that make your space as classic or as trendy as you’d like it to be.
To provide a product that helps customers stay within their budget, we work with Adornus’ stock sizes. Our team will measure your space and take notes of any special needs or features you desire to design your functional cabinet layout.
