Laura Coyner's Top 5 Design Centre Trends from Van Metre Design + Build.
At Van Metre Design + Build, it’s critical to stay on top of all latest trends. Meet Laura Coyner, our resident guru on all things Design Centre. Here’s the Top 5 trends Laura is seeing for 2018.
#1 — DIFFERENT COLORED KITCHEN ISLAND CABINETS Most buyers that come into the Design Centre ask about this and are thrilled to learn that we can accommodate the custom request. This design option can anchor the space and creates a focal point in the heart of the home.
#2 — ENGINEERED HARDWOOD FLOORING Not only is the strength and improved water resistance more appealing, the wider planks add an open, luxurious and classic feel.
#3 — QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS It’s less maintenance and hardly varies in color and pattern so the buyers see exactly what their counter will look like. Quartz pairs easily with modern and traditionally styled cabinets to create a transitional look.
#4 — GRAY CABINETRY Whether it’s painted, stained or glazed buyers gravitate toward the trendy color in all styles available.
#5 — LARGE BATH TILES IN CLASSIC COLORS While the size lends to a more modern look, natural finishes like marble or wood give a transitional feel and combines opposite ends of the style spectrum to create a timeless space.
