For the past few weeks, Lang’s has been highlighting various kitchen and bathroom trends that are popular among Bucks County homeowners. In this week’s blog, we’re sharing some of our favorite kitchen features that are commonly being added to kitchen renovations in Doylestown.
A kitchen hood is an effective means to remove airborne grease, smoke, steam, and a plethora of other fumes that may plague your kitchen. Chimney hoods are a particularly popular option for both style and functionality. They have a canopy above the range, with an internal fan that catches the smoke and smells and pumps them up a flue to a vent in the ceiling.
The sleek stainless steel hood completes the look of this gleaming white shaker style kitchen design.
Alternative countertop materials, like concrete and quartz, are becoming more widespread in kitchen renovations. Quartz is especially popular in Doylestown kitchen design and the surrounding areas and it’s easy to understand why. Like granite and marble, quartz is incredibly durable – and it has a few added bonuses. First, it’s non-porous, making it impervious to stains and antimicrobial. With no gaps on the countertop’s surface, it’s nearly impossible for bacterial microorganisms to cling to it. Second, it is heat resistant. Unlike other materials, quartz will not bend or warp when it comes in contact with hot objects.
This shaker kitchen design features a gorgeous quartz countertop on top of the island.
All chefs want just a little bit more storage and a few extra inches of workspace. Enter the island. Kitchen islands offer additional cabinet space and storage, as well as a few extra places to sit. Islands are perfect for busy, multi-tasking parents who need to cook dinner, while helping with math homework. They’re also ideal for those who love to entertain – more seats, more storage, and, most importantly, more space to prepare or display food.
Many homes in Doylestown are incorporating kitchen islands. The custom kitchen below left features an island entertainers will be envious over. There’s plenty of seating for guests, ample counter space for food prep, and a second sink for quick rinses! The lengthy island below right features plenty of extra storage for all your gadgets and enhances the style of the space.
Shaker-Style Kitchen Cabinetry
Inspired by the Shakers, who were skilled carpenters and artisans, shaker cabinets are typically designed with clean lines, and often feature light finishes, recessed panel doors, and simple hardware.
These timeless cabinets are most commonly seen in white or different shades of gray, making them incredibly versatile and suitable for many kitchen designs! This Doylestown kitchen design includes white shaker cabinetry, which adds to its bright appearance.
