Kitchen Trends for 2020

With the 2010’s over, many designers are looking for new trends for the new decade. Many designs are still in style; from polished stainless steel appliances to southwestern colors, to simple and clean white cabinetry. There are also a few designs trends that are bold and new; painted yellow ceilings, brick backsplashes, dog cantinas (yes that’s right!), and traditional simple designs are all in style for 2020.

Painted Ceilings

Ceilings are traditionally painted in white, however in recent years adding some color is more widely accepted. Painting your kitchen in a nice bright color will help to keep the light shining all year round. Yellow, light orange and green are nice choices. Plus with a nice color on the ceiling with a sheen, anywhere from satin to semi-gloss, will help when you need to do some light cleaning.

Brick Backsplashes

Rustic designs are timeless and many times you needed the right kitchen size and shape to pull it off. Today however, designers are getting creative by adding brick to the backsplash area of the sink. This creates a nice rustic look that matches well with modern appliances. If red bricks are too much for your kitchen, you can always try white washed bricks. Also work in a few painted bricks too.

Dog Cantinas

Yes you heard right, dog cantinas or a small eating area for the dogs is a really good idea! If you have extra lower cabinet space that is unused, installing a small area for dog bowls is a great way to keep their food off the floor, reducing mess (depending on your dog of course) and keeping walkways clear. There are many good design ideas, the picture to the left is a nice idea, but we can help design something specifically for your kitchen.

 

 

 

Simple, Clean Kitchen Designs

Keep it simple in 2020. You’ll never go wrong with beautiful white cabinets, matching countertops and tile, and hardwood flooring. Mix and match with natural or lightly stained cabinets, secondary color on the tile and counters, and matching hardwood or tile floors. You can still keep the stainless appliances, however painted refrigerators and ovens are in style again. Any of these are great options, and at Breit’s, we can show you what your kitchen would look like before we begin. We use advanced CAD software that will help to visualize the project, giving you piece of mind that the job will be done right!

New Southwest Style Kitchen with Custom Countertops, Paint, and Tile!

We are really excited to show off one of our latest projects. Our customer wanted a very specific tile in their kitchen, but did not have many ideas for design. We decided to take the tile and match the blue and build around that. We were able to custom build beautiful blue countertops. Our installers then installed modern looking white kitchen cabinets. We replaced the standard cabinet knobs with custom matched blue knobs that help tie everything together. The walls were then painted a beautiful yellow that was also custom matched to the tile. Lastly, we installed a very nice looking floor tile that matches the blue and yellow tile perfectly. Take a look at the pictures to the left, you’ll see our installers working diligently on this exciting design. We are neat and clean, no one wants a huge mess in the kitchen.

For more information on this or any of our other projects, please call us at 216.651.5800. You can also visit our showroom located at 5218 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44102.

Kitchen Counter Trends for 2019

Kitchen remodeling trends change from year to year, and every few years there are major shifts in trends. In the early-to-mid 2000’s, stainless steel appliances were all the rage. While stainless is still a very nice option, some trendy designs are leaning toward everything from painted, to specific designs, like southwestern. From the color of your walls, to the color and style of the tile, back-lighting, and even your appliances, the entire composition of the kitchen should match. But what about your countertops? Your countertop should pull the entire kitchen together, and it is a main focal point, and big selling point in real estate as well. Breit’s specializes in a wide range of countertop materials that fit every size kitchen and budget. You can choose from Laminate, Corian, Granite, and even Quartz. We make the process easy!

Top 5 Reasons to Update Your Kitchen

Kitchen remodeling is one of the most popular and valuable home renovations available to homeowners. Updated kitchen designs, new appliances, adding storage space, updating old or deteriorating plumbing and electrical, and adding new features are all good reasons to update. In addition, remodeling your kitchen returns more on your investment than most projects. According to Remodeling magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report for 2018, a kitchen remodel can return between 71% and 81% of the initial cost!

Updated Kitchen Designs

Let’s face it, the colors and designs of yesterday are painful to look at. According to Sherwin Williams, peoples thought on color changes about every 7 years, meaning there are always new designs to consider. The same goes for tile, countertops, and cabinets. That dark blue cabinet you fell in love with 5 years ago no longer has the same appeal. On top of that, if you are trying to sell your home, stay neutral in color! Your design style may not match up with your potential buyers.

New Appliances

New appliances are extremely nice to have, but what happens if they do not fit your current space? Breit’s has the expertise to redesign your kitchen to accommodate not only the new appliances, but also move outlets. Out team of experienced craftsmen are highly skilled at electrical and wiring, and can help hide existing outlets, or add more outlets if you are short a few.

Adding Storage and Counter Space

We all would LOVE more cabinet and countertop space! But sometimes purchasing standard cabinets from a big box store isn’t good enough; cabinets are cheaply made, only come in certain sizes, and many times are not even finished, ugh! Since 1948, Breit’s has designed and built custom cabinets, from framed to frameless, we do it all. We feature a very large in-house woodworking shop where our work is done. We also use computer aided design tools to help visualize your kitchen before we begin!

Updating Plumbing and Electrical

Plumbing and wiring does go bad over time. Faulty wiring is the leading cause of house fires according to a 2009 study by the National Fire Prevention Association. Rewiring your house, or even your kitchen is not a good idea for a DIY weekend project. The cost to repair or replace a poor wiring job can far exceed the original cost. However, the benefits of upgrading wiring and plumbing are very good things a homeowner can do to add value and safety to the home.

Adding New Features

Wouldn’t you love to add a new island in your kitchen? Or maybe a new appliance like a dishwasher or trash compactor, and your current layout will not accommodate it. How about a beautiful new Lazy Susan? We offer a Lazy Susan that is 28 inches in diameter, the doors fold in, features a frameless cabinet and is a perfect addition to any kitchen!

Window Seats

IMGP2788An easy way to make a window seat from 12″ high wall cabinets, is to make a toe kick out of 2 x 4’s build the cabinets up and make the seat out of veneer or laminate with a wood edge. In this one I used baseboard that matched and painted end panels. The seat is roughly 16.5″ high, making it near perfect for an existing table. The idea is to make kitchen cabinets look more like high end furniture without the added cost.
