Trending Kitchens

The Heartbeat of Home

It's no secret that our kitchens are the heartbeat of every home and are often overlooked for functionality, design, and decor. Condo owner Andrea Stelly partnered with the Home Design Center after purchasing her family's second home in 2019. "I knew that the Home Design Center offered everything we were looking for and Lori Lumsden came very highly recommended. Lori was able to transform our kitchen into a beautiful space with her design and functionality," With kitchen trends on the rise we wanted to share with you some tips and trends designers are seeing in 2023.

"We are seeing a trend of whites, creams, grays, and gray/beige when it comes to trending kitchen cabinets. Quartz is the most requested for countertops, offering a very clean look and a budget-friendly price. Subway tiles of any color with a full height back splash combined with countertops have become the most requested. " - Magan Lemovitz, Home Design Center. 

Owner of Coastal Flair Designs Lori Lumsden had this to say: "Andrea's kitchen is such a beautiful space. I ran with the colors. Blue is the new Black for many of my clients and with her setting, I wanted to play on the colors at hand. Many kitchens today have more drawers than doors and are adding things such as over-the-top lighting and double islands as trending requests. I design spaces that encourage you to mingle with your company and enjoy your family. I like to use a variety of mixed mediums such as stained wood with painted cabinets. Creating kitchen designs that have larger, over-sized hardware; making more of a substantial statement and creating kitchen pieces that feel like furniture."

We highly recommend visiting our friends at the Home Design Center located on the Foley Beach Express. They are open and ready to serve all of your design needs.
