Kitchen Remodeling Trends in the U.S: Triggers and Scope

Aug 31, 2016

In its 2016 kitchen trends study, Houzz examined the main motives behind many homeowners’ decision to upgrade their cooking spaces. The data presented in the study gives us an idea of what to expect in the coming years when it comes to kitchen styles, features, and their respective functions.

Kitchen Trends Study

Legacy Design Build Remodeling, the expert in interior design in Scottsdale, AZ, provides the key takeaways from this study:

The Breaking Point

Last year, the number one trigger for kitchen upgrades was that homeowners were simply tired of their old one. This signifies a 14% jump from 2014 stats, where this motive was at 29%. A boost in finances and a desire to do the job all along took second place in this year’s ranking with 37%. New homeowners looking to stamp their persona in their home made the third pick, coming in at 28% in 2014 and 2015.

Project Scope

According to the study, there are three main projects that homeowners opted for when doing their kitchen upgrades. These include:

  • Opening Up – Open kitchen layouts are fast becoming the norm, with one in five residents deciding to blur the lines between the functional and living areas of their homes. 46% also wanted to open their kitchen to other interior spaces.
  • Expansion and Reconfiguration – Majority of the projects involved an increase in size (37%) and/or a layout change of the space (48%). As the experts in kitchen remodeling in Scottsdale, AZ, we specialize in these projects, providing tailored solutions to our numerous clients.
  • Replacements and New Additions – Cabinet pantries, Islands, and breakfast bars topped the new built-ins list, at 47%, 37%, and 22% in that order. Those looking to upgrade key features in their kitchens focused on the countertops, faucets, and backsplash.
