Here are some top trends designers across the country are loving this year: 

- Colourfull sinks   

Use neutral shades for cabinets and make the space pop with a colourful sink. Think bold reds, lively greens or hip oranges to create a statement and kitchen focal point. Apron-front sinks with automated features like a hands-free faucet round out your sink style. 

- Skylights

Did you know that skylights can deliver two times the amount of daylight compared to vertical windows? Add drama to the hub of your home and eliminate the need to turn on every light during the day with a room-brightening stylish skylight. Good daylight improves health, well-being and performance. Velux programmable skylights not only let in natural light, they give you control to air out your home and keep your kitchen fresh during and after cooking. 

- Smart storage 

Deep drawers outfitted with organizer slots and cabinets with built-in recycling and garbage space are great for maintaining a cleaning and tidy kitchen. Storage walls are also gaining in popularity, with one dedicated wall housing tons of storage room to improve the overall flow of the space. 

- Mixed counter top materials

Wood is replacing granite, quartz and laminate as the most fashion-forward counter top. Combine this warm, versatile material with cool marble for a contemporary look.
