Creating Your Dream Kitchen? Get Top 5 Design Ideas for Today's Hottest Kitchens

What's it going to be? A few small touches here and there to take your kitchen from dull to dynamic? Or something big and bold that changes the entire mood of the room? Whether you're planning something minor or major, just approach your kitchen remodeling project with an open mind and you'll make your dream a reality.

Fully Functional

Today's kitchens create functional zones for all aspects of kitchen use. From cooking to eating to cleaning, these kitchens provide useful, practical areas that not only provide space, but organization as well. Prep sinks are a hot feature because they help avoid cross-contamination during food prep.

Appliances that Are a Steel

Update your kitchen and give it a modern look and feel when you incorporate stainless steel. Stainless steel appliances and hardware have been a top-selling item for many years, and their popularity continues to grow. Its cool "neutral" hue pairs nicely with almost any color and can be accented through the use of different metals like wrought iron, nickel or copper. Moen's faucets coordinate nicely with stainless appliances. Many are available in Spot Resist stainless and are fingerprint-free, so you'll have one less thing to worry about cleaning daily.

Star of Approval

Energy-efficiency is more than just eco-friendly, it's budget-friendly. Seeing the Energy Star® label ensures you are helping save the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as water consumption and/or waste. Not only will you use less, but you'll also spend less in the process. Plus, many brands, stores, and states offer Energy Star® rebates and discounts when you purchase energy-efficient products. Another way to aid conservation efforts and help promote water efficiency is by choosing one of Moen's WaterSense® kitchen faucets.

So Many Faucets...So Little Time

Wouldn't it be nice if you could put two faucets in every room? That way, you wouldn't have to make the tough decision between style (e.g., modern, basic, traditional and transitional), finish (e.g., chrome, oil rubbed bronze, stainless steel, glacier, etc.) and even number of handles. Now's the time to really zero in on your likes and dislikes. Use our Design Your Own tool to experiment putting different looks together.

Dare to Go Bold

Make your room stand out by going bold and painting with shades of red, blue, yellow, purple or grey. These colors work well with all appliances, hardware and faucet finishes. For added oomph, paint an accent wall with a shade of paint one or two colors lighter or darker than the rest of your room. This will draw the eye and create a new level of depth in your room.
