Kitchen Design: What's IN What's OUT


We blogged this last year, and were interested to revisit it to see how we felt about these trends one year later. This is what the design professionals had to say, what do you say?
IN: White Cabinets, Quartz Countertops, Stone & Glass Tiles, Farmhouse Sinks
OUT: Ice Machines, Wallpaper, Granite
See what WE had to say here: http://blog.akatlanta.com/2011/11/whats-trending-in-kitchens-and-baths.html (Hint: We didn't completely agree!)
Farmhouse Sinks Are "IN!" Do You Agree? http://blog.akatlanta.com/2011/11/whats-trending-in-kitchens-and-baths.html

    I also see a return of wallpaper, maybe not right away, but as history has told us all "what was once old is new again." Just like bell bottoms, stirrup pants, flats, etc. If you live long enough it will all come back around again. I have stopped worrying about whether my house is up to date... there are more things to life then that. I'd rather take all that money and travel and see the world then sit and stare at granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances... Over the years I have learned my lessons...

    Let's be honest, not all of us have a great design flair and we have all made mistakes. The biggest mistake I ever saw was done by a high-priced designer. Go with what makes YOU smile...easy, simple and always, within your means. Then you won't hate what you have to live with!
