Double-Height Ceilings

We’ve seen double-height ceilings in the great room for years, but vaulted or custom ceilings in the kitchen are becoming more popular. A barrel-vaulted ceiling is a stunning addition to The Ambroise kitchen.

Wooden counter-tops bring warmth to the kitchen and a butcher block is a great way to increase functionally with a built-in cutting board.

Farmhouse Sinks

Farmhouse sinks have gained popularity with the modern farmhouse trend, however they can work equally well in a contemporary or rustic kitchen as they come in a wide variety of colors and materials.

Eat-in kitchens are one of the top kitchen trends.

Eat-in Kitchen

Open design kitchens have been on-trend for a while and are still going strong. A great way to enjoy casual meals is right in the kitchen, either with bar stools pulled up to the island or a table that adjoins the kitchen layout.

Wide-plank floors are one of the top kitchen trends.

Double Islands

Double islands create multiple work stations in the kitchen and are great for households with more than one cook.

Two-toned cabinetry is one of the top kitchen trends.

Two-Toned Cabinetry

Two-toned cabinetry creates contrast for a more visually interesting design. You can choose a contrasting color for your island or go with a different hue for all your lower cabinets.

Accessorized kitchens are one of the top kitchen trends.

Statement Hoods

You may not have put much thought into your range hood vent, but the materials and styles are seemingly endless. In The Coleraine home plan, the range hood was custom crafted from reclaimed wood.

Industrial style one of the top kitchen trends.

Stainless steel is as functional as it is trendy in the kitchen. The industrial aesthetic creates a clean and sleek appearance that can easily blend with other styles, from modern to rustic.
