4 Caesarstone Collections You will fall in Love with

We were invited by Elements Room last night to view the new collections of Caesarstone. It has been a while since last time we used Casarstone since nowadays most of my clients kind of really favor natural  marble–specially Carrara marble.  And I was pretty amazed by Castaron’s new collections after last night’s viewing—they are beautiful,  look organic and natural, super durable and very low maintenance.  I specially fell in love with their concrete collection.

Caesarstone , quartz surface combining  nature and technology, is nonporous, scratch resistant and highly resistant to stains. Here are several my favorite ones from last night.

  1. Cloudburst concrete.

Hot Kitchen Design Trends in 2017

We all agree that kitchen is the heart of home.   Today, people treat kitchen more like a new living room, where, besides cooking, they lounge, entertain and host get- together parties.   Therefore, kitchen design has shifted from traditional triangle focus to creating multi-functional zones.

Summer is coming.  A lot of people start to plan kitchen remodeling.  According to NKBA’s 2017 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends Report, here are 10 kitchen trends to watch for.

1. Clean lines, built-ins and simple door styles dominate kitchen designs. Contemporary- styled kitchens will overtake traditional to be the second most popular design after transitional. Emerging: industrial and mid century modern. Mountain modern and coastal are variations on contemporary.

2. White and gray painted cabinets dominate kitchen color schemes and show no signs of slowing down, especially gray. Blue painted and high gloss cabinets are emerging. For overall color schemes, blue as well as black are emerging.

3. Two-toned kitchens are gaining in popularity. Also mixing it up: materials and metals, across surfaces and as accents.

4.While wood cabinets dominate kitchen designs, metal – currently a small segment of the cabinet market – appears to be emerging. Metal cabinets are most frequently specified by younger and male designers.
