Stainless steel kitchen appliancesAre you thinking about a kitchen remodeling project and curious what appliances you may want to consider? Here are 5 trends in kitchen appliances that might be a perfect fit for your home:

Stainless steel. One big kitchen design trend you’ve probably noticed is the use of stainless steel appliances. Whether a refrigerator, stove or dishwasher, this appliance trend is built on function. In addition to a shiny, attractive look, stainless steel has a long life span, is easy to clean and provides a barrier against rust and other contaminates that harbor germs and bacteria.

30″ dishwashers. Many homeowners are opting for 30″ dishwashers when remodeling their kitchens as they provide a little bit of extra room without taking up a lot of additional space.

Wine refrigeration. This is one kitchen appliance trend on the wish list for many homeowners. Wine connoisseurs can control temperature and humidity of a wine refrigerator in the convenience of their home. There are plenty of energy efficient options for the eco-friendly consumer, too!

Recycle centers. An eco-friendly kitchen appliance trend, recycle centers have replaced trash compactors in most cases. Many homeowners appreciate being able to easily separate recyclables so they can do their part for the environment while keeping the design appealing for the eye.

Induction cooktops. This kitchen design trend is gaining popularity for several reasons. Because induction cooktops only heat the pan, they’re more energy efficient, safer – especially around young children, keep the kitchen cooler and are easier to keep clean.
