Pratt said one of the big trends of the past year is sophisticated replacement cabinets that provide multiple ways to store pots, pans and chef items. He said a big push in remodeling is to upgrade not only the look of kitchen cabinets but what’s in them. Ease of access, ease of storage, cool ways to store stuff, pull outs for spices and specialized chef cabinets that have knife collections inside are among the many features considered in installing new cabinets.
He said metals are “a big deal” in kitchens now and that matte black and champagne gold are popular colors.
For countertops, quartz is “king” followed by granite in terms of popularity, Pratt said. White, gray and blue are popular kitchen colors. Deep browns and deep reds are popular in wood-stained kitchens.
Pratt said because people are at home more, they have more time to think about remodeling projects they previously pushed aside. Pratt said the increase in demand for remodeling has led to Cavalier Kitchens often having a booked schedule.
“You can’t wait,” Pratt said. “If you want to start remodeling within a year, get on it now.”
