A very common trend that we’ve seen in our clients is their desire to transform their home into a space in which they can happily live forever.
Here’s the final video of our Small Kitchen, Big transformation series. The dated kitchen has been replaced with a better layout, more modern finishes, and an overall light and neutral color palette. This kitchen renovation shows that you don’t always need more square footage, just a design that can better utilize the existing space.

Although faucets are crucial to any kitchen aesthetic, they can often be overlooked. Your kitchen faucet can be both beautiful and useful, so why not make it a stand-out part of your kitchen space?These days, kitchen faucets have become "smart", with features like handle-free technology. Consumer Reports even named motion-sensing faucets one of their top 2015 remodeling trends.With that in mind, there's one new line of kitchen faucets in particular that we love - the Artesso collection by Brizo. The new faucet collection is sleek and refined, with a pinch of warmth brought by its industrial inspiration.
"The design for Artesso was born out of the spirit of the industrial revolution ... Those elements give the Artesso collection the unique ability to be rustic and masculine, while still maintaining a sophisticated, unexpected allure"- Seth Fritz (source)
The Artesso Collection has five different styles with luxurious and high-tech features. In addition to the motion-sensing technology, one Artesso style is an articulating arm with dual-jointed, flexible hose. This groundbreaking arm provides a larger range of motion, as well as a cool, industrial look.Other Artesso features include:
- Diamond Seal Technology with a diamond-coated valve (yes, really) for durability
- Water Efficient with a flow rate beyond the industry standard
- MagneDock Technology that secures the spray wand when it's not being used
The faucets are available chrome, nickel, bronze, and stainless steel. For more information on the Artesso collection, click here.
Here's another kitchen remodel we're excited to share with you! The homeowner wanted to keep the granite countertops because they were in such great condition. The base cabinets will remain and we will replace the door and drawer fronts instead of replacing the entire cabinet. New upper cabinets will be installed that will go to the ceiling. The wall that is currently home to the oven and fridge will receive the biggest transformation. The updated color scheme will become light and bright and be a big upgrade from the builder basics of the current kitchen.
Take a look at some of the latest kitchen trends that were showcased at the 2015 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. Many of these hand-less features are simply aesthetics but to some people with arthritis, it can make a world of difference.
