The kitchen is the heart of every home. This is where new homes shine with the latest and greatest design, cabinets, countertops, lighting and state-of-the-art appliances. New homebuyers are looking for a modern kitchen design that includes the latest trends. Specifically, granite continues to trend, but the pattern in the granite tends to be characterized by more “movement and flow,” as opposed to a busy, speckled look. Floor tile has been growing in size, with large rectangular tiles (and fewer grout lines) leading the trends.
