When it comes to kitchen design, Virginia Beach residents are some of the most on-trend homeowners we’ve seen. With a keen eye for detail and great taste, our Virginia Beach projects have been some of our most successful — and most beautiful — to date.

Want to join your neighbors with an updated, on-trend kitchen? Here are just a couple of the trends we’ve seen in recent months:

Going Grey

Grey’s a hot one in terms of kitchen color palettes. We’re seeing it on walls, cabinetry, chairs, tables, and countertops. Mixes of greys, whites, and blacks are also popular now.

So Long, Steel

Stainless steel appliances have been the go-to for homeowners for many years now, but it seems those days may be over. Black appliances and fixtures are very in this year, as are ones in bright and bold-colored hues.

Deep and Dark

Forget white tile and sterile linoleum. Kitchens nowadays are all about the deep, dark-toned floors. They’re especially on-trend when paired with lighter-colored cabinetry and countertops (hello, grey!).

Quartz Is King

Marble and granite, be gone. Today, it’s all about quartz — especially on countertops. Available in tons of stunning, neutral tones and especially durable and scratch resistant, they’re a great investment for homeowners planning to stay put a while.

Farmhouse Fun

Thanks to HGTV and the rise of shiplap, the farmhouse look is in high demand. Farmhouse-style sinks are particularly popular — and they’re quite functional too.

Mixed Metals

Adding in a few pops of metallic sheen — either on appliances, vent hoods, or other areas of this kitchen — is a big hit this year. The most popular metals? Copper, gold, and rose gold.
