Even though todays fashion is taking us back into 60s and 70s, construction and remodeling is still moving forward with its contemporary and modern look. Colors are playing one of the most important roles in home design. Nowadays we are observing a change in kitchen remodeling and the colors that are being used.

  1. Leviticus Bennett,

    I like the bright colors that are being used in the kitchen like you mentioned. The Pantone color of the year is “greenery”. I think it looks great in kitchens because it gives a splash of color suggesting organic life and growth.

  2. mandywilliamslicsw,

    This is really something to be excited about, and while we are waiting for the clock to strike midnight December 31, we can make our homes enter 2017 on trend with some of these remodeling efforts.
