Kitchen Trend Watch: Shimmering Surfaces

Habersham Custom Kitchen Cabinetry with Bastille Metal WorksThe National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) recently  revealed  the prevailing trends seen in the 2012 NKBA Design Competition.

According to the association’s press release — Out of the nearly 500 designs submitted to the 2012 NKBA Design Competition rose some presiding themes. Fixtures, finishes, materials, color palettes, technology, shapes, focal points and overall geometry are a few among the complex considerations that talented creative-thinkers factor into their plans when generating a room design.

One of the trends noted was “shimmering surfaces.”   As outlined in the press release,” Shimmering  surfaces, shining fixtures, high-sheen finishes, and perfectly placed lighting accents are a prominent personality trait of current kitchens.”

The galley kitchen design we created with Bastille Metal Works in our High Point showroom reflects this trend perfectly.    Bastille provided the countertops and range hood to complement our cabinetry.
