Kitchens are no longer just spaces for cooking. They are for family gatherings and happy hours, offices, homework nooks and storage spaces. The modern kitchen is working overtime.
“Aesthetic functionality is a major trend for 2023-24 kitchens. Whether constructing a brand-new kitchen with tailored storage spaces or redefining an existing space to maximize workflow, homeowners are seeking custom craftsmanship and personalization,” says Jerry Marshall, owner of Atlanta Cabinet & Coatings LLC. “Customized efficiencies such as pull-out trays and organizers, hidden storage for kitchen appliances and garbage cans, space-saving counter-depth appliances, large work surfaces like single-level islands, and dedicated nooks for morning coffee or happy hour, make the kitchen ‘work' for the homeowner.”
When choosing and designing your new kitchen or bathroom, there are a lot of decisions to make. There are kitchen and bathroom cabinets for every price point, some more customized than others. There are materials, textures, color and general feel of the room to consider. Jerry and his team assist you in creating a design that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, while staying within the given space and your budget. “We will take into account your family size, lifestyle, entertaining style, cooking style, and other needs so that you have a unique, efficient, and beautiful design,” promised Jerry, a U.S. veteran. The family-owned business is intent on delivering quality results that will last. Collectively, they offer over 40 years of experience in the construction and renovation industry and use their experience to better the renovation and revitalization process for your kitchen cabinetry.
Moving into 2024, trends are about inviting colors and designs and helpful technology. Warm neutrals, wood tones, and mixed metals create an ambiance of elevated comfort. Rich browns, cozy creams, and neutral greiges are the background for highlights of muted greens, soft blues, and earthy oranges. While the white kitchen is still a timeless classic, the sterile feel of cool grey undertones and monotonous patterns, have been replaced with a more welcoming atmosphere of organic elements and layers of texture. Cheers to that, we say!
As demand increases for functionality and convenience, more homeowners are integrating smart features into their design, such as tech-enabled lighting and appliances with smart-device or voice controls. “Health-conscious and eco-friendly materials have also taken a front seat in post-pandemic construction,” says Jerry, whose business is based in Cumming. “Low VOC paint, tenting/ventilation, and spraying doors off-site are all part of our process so that your remodeling experience is as satisfying as the final product.”
We asked Jerry about what we can expect to budget for different-sized projects.
