Maybe we’re just builder nerds, but we truly love reading up on stylish design trends for our recreational reading!

With over 6 decades of home building experience, we’ve pulled together some timeless designer kitchen tips seen at the NAHB International Builders Show, the Kitchen and Bath Show and  in design articles on and Making the top of our list are:

• Two tone cabinets like the white and gray Homes by Gerbus kitchen above.
• Kitchen finishes come and go, but polished silver (chrome) never goes out of style.
• A classic white kitchen with white subway tile and quartz countertops will always be clean and fresh and can be easily accessorized with a pop of color.
• Gray continues to perform as an alternative to white.
• Tear down those walls and go for an open-layout kitchen.
• Invest in upgraded appliances.
• Touchless faucets – need we say more?
• Large, single level islands take up less visual room and provide more usable space especially for those who like working from home.
• Treat the ceiling as a fifth wall with beams, moldings, and more.
• Opt for dish drawers.
• Dump the fake plants on top of your upper cabinets.
• Wood (like) Floors. Hardwood floors are warm and cozy and that won’t change. But don’t count out wood-like tile, luxury vinyl, and laminate wood floor options that will provide you with the same coziness but less maintenance.
