The Latest Trends in Long Island Kitchen & Bath Renovation

As the premier general contractor Long Island turns to for kitchen and bathroom renovations, Elite Kitchen & Bath sees the latest home trends firsthand. So what are the biggest trends right now? Keep reading to find out.

The Latest Trends in Bath Renovation

When it comes to bath renovation, Long Island homeowners have a variety of choices and no two bathrooms look alike. But despite all this variety we still see trends emerging over time. Right now, for instance, freestanding bathtubs such as claw tubs are becoming a more popular choice for the bathroom, while many homeowners are opting for a master shower that replaces the traditional bathtub setup altogether. This is due in part to the fact that traditional bathtubs cause accessibility issues for many older homeowners, who are choosing to stay in their homes. Other homeowners just don’t use a bathtub enough to warrant having one, and with luxurious walk-in showers and added features such as handheld sprayers and rain-head faucets there’s not much to be missed. One thing is certain – cheap materials such as fiberglass are out altogether. Most homeowners will opt for tiles even when on a tight budget.    

The Latest Trends in Kitchen Renovation

In the world of kitchen renovation, Long Island homeowners seem to be sticking with go-to styles such as glazed cabinets with neutral shades such as grey winning out over more attention-grabbing colors. The idea is to let the custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances speak for themselves. There are more noticeable trends emerging for new countertop additions, however, with materials such as quartz growing in popularity. While granite is still a popular option for kitchen renovations, quartz is certainly an option many homeowners at least consider.
