Colorado Springs, CO | Press Release 2012 | NKBA | National Kitchen & Bath Association Reveals Top Kitchen & Bath Trends for 2012 | 10 overall trends for kitchens and baths across the United States, Colorado Springs, Colorado and Front Range.

In the Colorado Springs area by simply calling (719) 531-0961 and speaking to C J Krzywonski / dba "ThePolak" with over 23 years of experience. Submit any questions to ThePolak@WeFixItUSA.com for help with kitchen and bath planning.

KITCHENS - Cherry Wood in Decline - designers are shifting away from it. Instead, a number of lesser-used woods are being specified more often, including oak, which is specified by twice as many designers now, and walnut, which is on the increase. Birch is back and bamboo, while alder is currently specified about 27% of the time by kitchen designers.

Darker Finishes - Natural kitchen cabinetry continues a steady move toward darker finishes. Among painted cabinetry, white continues to be the most popular option, as white cabinets have been recently specified about 59% of the time.

Glass Backsplashes - Although glass remains a niche material for kitchen countertops, it’s been recently used by more than half of kitchen designers as a backsplash material. This trails only natural stone tile and ceramic tile (including porcelain), which has been specified of late by some 74% of designers. Other popular backsplash materials are granite and quartz.

LED Lighting and Energy-efficiency is clearly not a fad, but a real trend that can be seen taking hold in homes across the United States and especially along the Rocky Mountain Regions and Colorado Springs and Denver - Despite the higher initial cost, light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting is proof of this trend.

Pull-Out Faucets - Pull-out kitchen faucets have become established as the dominant type of kitchen faucet. Designers are increasingly eschewing the standard faucet with a detached side spray in favor of pull-out models that integrate the two functions into a single unit. Viewing the large number of new pull-out faucet models at the NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, it’s clear these units can be seamlessly incorporated into almost any kitchen design style.

BATHROOMS

Medicine Cabinets - The tried-and-true medicine cabinet had been swept aside in bathroom remodels over the past several years, replaced by decorative wall mirrors. However, as homeowners look for more efficient use of space, most designers are now turning toward medicine cabinets as an effective way to gain additional storage without having to increase the footprint of a room, attenuating the need for separate shelving, cabinetry, or other storage options as long held by bathrooms designed by WeFixItUSA of Colorado Springs and "ThePolak".

Solid Surfaces - A year ago, the use of solid surfaces was a key trend in the kitchen; this year, it’s an even stronger trend, and one that impacts both the kitchen and the bathroom. In the NKBA’s 2011 and 2012 Design Trends Survey, the use of solid surfaces in the kitchens is on the upswing. Save money on Solid Surface in Colorado Springs with WeFixitUSA loyalty discounting on kitchen and bath projects.

Shades of Gray - When artfully incorporated into a space, gray color schemes can allow for very attractive, distinguished looks without overpowering a design—the key reason why gray is now used more and more by interior designers. In kitchens, gray was used as the overall color scheme by only 9% of designers as we moved into 2010, but that figure has nearly quadrupled to 33% this year. Over that time, the use of gray color schemes has risen just as dramatically in bathroom remodels.

Whites and off-whites continue to be the most popular color schemes in the kitchen and bathroom, followed by beiges and bones. Brown is the third most popular color in kitchens and the fourth most popular in bathrooms, just behind gray. In the kitchen, bronzes/terracottas have risen over the past two years while greens have increased.

Polished Chrome is Back - Supplanted by brushed metal finishes in the past, polished chrome is staging a comeback. After being specified by 34% of designers in kitchens last year, polished chrome has recently been specified by 52% of NKBA member designers in kitchens today. In the bathroom, polished chrome use has increased from 46% to 65% over the past year. At the same time, polished nickel is up from 17% to 25% in kitchens and from 28% to 32% in bathrooms over the past year.

Only stainless steel has managed to clearly buck the trend away from brushed finishes, as it rose slightly in the kitchen and increased significantly from 16% to 28% in the bathroom. Bronze finishes continue to be popular, but dipped a bit from a year ago, falling from 49% to 41% in kitchens, while their use remained flat at 41% in bathrooms.
