What Are 2016 Kitchen Trends?

Check out more posts from Moss Building & Design

Dear Dulles Mom,

These up and coming kitchen counter-trends are becoming more common for homeowners. Regarding color — think white marble or a white quartz that mimics marble. This timeless look not only has a classic feel but you can add an edge of flair by pairing your counters with bold colors and accents.

Regarding style, waterfall countertops, and mitered edges are now in style. We have seen these becoming more and more popular over the years — beveled counter tops have been run out of town by this sleek, modern look. See this look from HGTV.
