Whether your taste is cozy or classic, modern or traditional, creating the desired atmosphere for your kitchen is an important goal when it comes to choosing an ideal seating arrangement. Kitchen tables and seating bring people together, whether it’s over a meal or a steaming cup of coffee. Read on to find your desired look, atmosphere, and setting to update your kitchen with the latest seating trends!

Comfy and Cozy

With winter right around the corner, comfortable nooks mesh perfectly with the upcoming season. Built-in benches, rather than separate chairs, help to create a cozy coffee-shop look . Placing comfy cushions on the benches for a friendlier atmosphere in an alcove or corner in your home can quickly and easily turn your dinner table into a relaxing breakfast nook! Wooden benches with cushions placed on top will look and function like booths, so you can snuggle up with your cup of coffee and your favorite book! Choosing booth seating over chairs provides:

  • Extra storage within the benches
  • Versatile seating arrangements and looks
  • An artistic appearance
  • Relaxing places to sit
  • Enhanced ability to easily change up your color scheme by swapping out cushions and pillows

L-Shaped Nook

If you have a larger space to work with, this trend is definitely something for you to consider. An L-Shaped nook in your home is the perfect place for a breakfast area that’s less formal than a traditional dinner table. If you like the cozy look of a kitchen booth, this provides a larger space for even more pillows! Kitchen Designs  recommends a fixed or freestanding pedestal table, mainly so people don’t hit their legs getting in and out. If you have a larger family or if you plan to entertain a lot, you might want to consider a movable table for easier cleaning purposes. We generally recommend at least a 21” seating width for each person, along with a seat depth of 18” to ensure that everyone is able to sit comfortably!

It’s classy, it’s timeless, and it’s versatile. Tiling in bathrooms can create chic, effortless looks as well as unique and creative spaces. While tiling is a staple in most bathrooms, tiling trends are continuously evolving. Thinking about revamping your bathroom’s look? Check out some of 2017’s hottest tiling trends.

Brick
Brick in a bathroom? Who would have thought. While not technically tiling material, brick is one method to achieve an interesting, unique look for your bathroom. With the rustic and industrial-chic trends continuing to remain hot on the home-trends list, adding exposed brick to your bathroom will provide a modern update to your space.

Geometric
Move over rectangle and squares, there are a few new shapes in town. Geometric tiling can be used not only as flooring but as a backsplash for your shower, toilet, or even walls. The patterning creates an effortless, trendy look for your space. A must-have for anyone who derives pleasure from order and organization.

Black Grout
Wait what? Don’t we have a closet full of cleaning products to avoid that? Think again. Black grout creates an edgy, refined look for your bathroom. This look is exceptionally chic when white tile is used. Not to mention, now you’re saving time and money not having to scrub away stains.

Glass Tiles
Not just for beach houses anymore! Glass tiling can turn your dark, drab space into something bright and beautiful. If you’re worried about glass tiling looking too nautical, simply avoid blue hues and go for other soft or bold colors.

Dark and Bold
Most homes stick with whites or soft greys for bathroom flooring and walls; however, this year is seeing bold blues, yellows, and pinks as well as dark and bold tiling for flooring or accent walls.

Why Choose Open-Concept
Thinking about remodeling or designing a new kitchen? If so, it’s highly suggested to look into an open kitchen concept. Open-concept kitchens are more social than a traditional kitchen. It makes entertaining much easier for the host as you can easily socialize with guests while you cook instead of changing from room to room. Open-concept kitchens are also much more family oriented. If you have small children and need to keep a constant eye on them, an open kitchen might be something to consider. Being able to watch your children while cooking or cleaning up will put your mind at ease knowing that they are staying out of trouble and allow you to finish tasks quicker. Finally, natural lighting will flow through your house with an open-concept kitchen. Along with the lighting, air flow is a lot better and less expensive when it comes to heating and air conditioning due to reduced number of rooms. All in all, an open-concept kitchen is a beautiful way to open up your home and create a more efficient entertaining space.

When you think of some characteristics of what might make a home desirable,  you often hear phrases like “open floor plan” and “updated kitchen.” So naturally, combining two of those coveted expressions together into one, and having an “updated, open floor plan kitchen” gives you the best of everything.

If you are considering putting your house on the market and want to add value to its selling price, or if you are simply looking to give your kitchen a much-needed facelift, a kitchen remodel with an open floor plan is a home renovation that is simultaneously a need and a want. And for good reason—the kitchen is the room in your house that generally gets the most use. It’s the focal point of the casual family dinner, the place where your best entertaining occurs, and the site where your most memorable recipes are created. So of course this room should always look its best—and a new look, complete with a sleek design, new appliances, and an open floor plan, is just what the (design) doctor ordered.

However, starting a kitchen remodel can be intimidating for any homeowner. Here’s our quick guide to understanding why a kitchen with an open floor plan is the best choice for your upcoming kitchen redesign.

Understand What an Open Floor Plan Is

While the term may be self-explanatory, an open floor plan space embraces wide open spaces while minimizing small, confining rooms. Instead of having three smaller enclosed spaces, like your dining room, living room, and kitchen, an open floor plan quite literally knocks the walls down and turns three small rooms into one large one.

This first became a popular construction and design trend in the mid 1900’s, when home builders saw this plan as an efficient use of square footage.

Why An Open Floor Plan Is Best

The pros of having an open floor plan kitchen are numerous, but the biggest advantage of an open floor plan living space is the additional space, more natural lighting, and quality spaces to entertain, all while maintaining the square footage and structure of your current home. A kitchen that is easily accessible to your primary living space  makes both large parties and intimate gatherings a pleasure for all involved.

The kitchen of your dreams can become a reality with the help of your friends and experts at Cumberland Kitchen & Bath. Call us today to get the process started! We can be reached at 401-334-7317. You can also visit us in person at 1764 Mendon Road.

Spring is finally here, and for most of us that means spring cleaning projects. This season, many homeowners are taking the plunge and opting to remodel.  Two parts of the home that many families choose to update are the kitchen and the bathroom. Even small changes in these two areas can make a huge difference both now and for future resale.


Kitchen Inspiration

Are you expecting company this summer? That makes spring a great time to update and renovate your kitchen. A new quartz island or peninsula is both attractive and functional. Beautiful, durable quartz is rapidly replacing granite as the go-to finish for countertops, both in kitchens and baths. Quartz is nonporous, won’t absorb moisture or odors, and is available in a huge variety of colors and styles. Touchless faucets practically read your mind with sensors that respond in milliseconds, while making even the most mundane kitchen task fun! Water filtration units deliver pure, particle-free water, and new features enable you to tackle your toughest kitchen tasks while saving water.


Kitchen updates can improve the traffic flow and make your kitchen perfect for your family. From places for the kids to do homework, to an island big enough for everybody to help with meal prep, today’s kitchen designs truly offer something for everyone.  Smart storage options help eliminate clutter and create a more visually appealing space for you and your guests. Soft-close doors and hidden microwave drawers improve functionality, while exotic wood finishes and countertops create that “wow” factor you crave.


Bathroom Inspiration

Updating or remodeling a bathroom gives you the opportunity to create additional space and improve functionality. Imagine how much just going from a single to a double sink would improve your family’s quality of life! The bathroom is another place where a little modernization can make a huge difference. Water and energy conserving features can offset some of the cost of the remodel in future savings. Want to create a private oasis with a spa-like bathroom? Whirlpool tubs and luxurious finishes provide a soothing environment where you can wash away the cares of the day in style and comfort.


As your family has grown, maybe you’ve discovered the need for an additional bathroom. Homeowners are getting creative here  - adding bathrooms in basements, additions, even garages! With the warmer weather coming, maybe now is the time to add a guest bath or a garage bathroom to make cleaning up after outdoor activities or swimming more convenient.

The kitchen serves as the heart of the home. No longer the province of a lone family cook, invisible behind walls separating the dining and living rooms, modern kitchens bring families and guests together and allow for multiple users at once. If your kitchen feels outdated in technology, efficiency, and style, the rewards of remodeling may far outweigh sticking with your current design.

When deciding whether to remodel, some key areas of kitchen efficiency to consider are:

  • Space and flow: Does your family find themselves constantly bumping into each other when trying to use the kitchen? Chances are, you have an outdated, narrow design. By today’s standards, kitchens feature wider entrances and more room around primary workspaces. Is your kitchen preventing you from entertaining guests or interacting with your family? It may be time to consider a more open-concept kitchen and dining area.
  • Technology and storage efficiency: Today’s appliances often focus on energy efficiency, as well as space-saving designs. Older appliances, such as dishwashers, may be costing you extra money if they use more electricity and water than new models. Pull-out cabinets that store small appliances like coffee makers, the trash can, and even your dishwasher revolutionize the look of kitchens by reducing clutter and saving valuable counter space. Combination appliances and multi-use features save space and time, such as refrigerators that make ice and filtered water, and microwaves that serve as second ovens.  
  • Appearance and materials: Improvements in the durability, as well as a wider selection, of kitchen materials means that you now can personalize your kitchen more than ever. Natural stone, quartz, ceramic, and butcher block counters go far beyond yesterday’s laminate. New flooring materials that offer great value while giving the appearance of real stone or hardwood can easily transform the look and feel of a sterile kitchen and make it more homey. Faucets have also moved beyond stainless steel to encompass warmer materials such as bronze and brushed gold.
