Experimenting with High Contrast Colors
Monochromatic kitchens in neutral colors have swept the nation in recent years. While all-white kitchens have been a popular trend, the frequency of this style choice has made it somewhat overdone. Designers are now moving away from stark white kitchens and are embracing kitchens with darker-colored accents. Contrasting colors bring innovation and help elevate and modernize spaces. The Lennar model at Wildcat Ranch, for instance, showcases dark brown cabinets with a white stone countertop. In certain lighting, the countertops give off a black hue, adding depth to the kitchen. In perfect harmony with the darker accents, the bright countertops bring balance and complement the contrasting style of the space. The incorporation of light and dark colors in Lennar’s kitchens create a dramatic ambiance within their homes.

Adding A Splash of Color
Colorful and vibrant backsplashes are more in style than ever before. The tile that adorns the wall space between the lower and upper cabinets serves as the eye-catching focal point of the kitchen. Breathing life into the space, backsplashes come in a variety of colors and patterns, offering stylistic freedom for designers and homeowners to customize their kitchens to their personal tastes. In Wildcat Ranch’s Beazar Homes model, a calming gray backsplash with a hint of blue is showcased, featuring an intricate tile pattern that truly makes it the centerpiece of the kitchen. Backsplashes not only enhance the style of kitchens but can also influence the overall stylistic direction of homes.

Optimizing Storage Space with Innovative Features
Storage space is vital for a fully functioning kitchen. Optimizing the available space helps maintain a tidy kitchen and keeps clutter at bay. Designers have become increasingly innovative in creating various storage features, incorporating elements such as pull-out cabinet drawers and panel-ready refrigerators and appliances. At Wildcat Ranch, builder Express Homes has taken this concept to heart and designed each residence with spacious pantries, maximizing storage capacity. The ample cabinet space within these homes utilizes every inch for efficient organization, ensuring that homeowners have plenty of room to store their kitchen essentials.
