So it’s time to remodel your kitchen. Sure, you can pin $5,000 light fixtures and custom Italian backsplashes to your “Dream Kitchen!!” board. But if you want to get real, you should take a look at how most Americans are remodeling their own kitchens.
Home Depot is the country’s largest home improvement retailer, so we looked at their top sellers to find out what kitchen trends are growing, and what people are actually buying.
Whether you're here to get inspiration or just make fun of how other people decorate, it's time to spy on your neighbor's new kitchen.
Whether it’s farm-to-table food, farm-fresh eggs, or a farmhouse sink, it seems like everyone loves the look of a farm without all the actual hard work of farming. Of course this sink from Sinkology puts a popular hammered copper spin on the style. We’re not at all surprised how well it sells.
It seems like every remodel you see on TV has these grainy, wood-look ceramic tiles. The trend isn’t going away, though—these 12-in. by 24-in. tiles from MS International are Home Depot top sellers, and they won’t break the bank.
The top-selling pendant lamp for a kitchen is this oil-rubbed bronze and glass design from Globe Lighting. Put in some filament-style bulbs and you’ll add some vintage warmth to your kitchen, no matter the style.
When you cook with gas, you can see how the flame is responding. Home Depot customers like how this Samsung’s front-mounted controls give it a sleek look so you can put a tile backsplash behind it. We gave it high ratings, too!
These Genoa cabinets from Home Decorators Collection have a flat, light grain wood exterior with recessed handles. They’re the #1 choice for people who don’t mind assembling cabinets themselves, and they wouldn’t be out of place in a kitchen in France or Italy, either.
This model from Kohler not only adds the look of a professional kitchen faucet—it also adds the utility. Just pull the faucet wherever you want to spray it for easy cleanup, and let it spring back into place when you’re done.
French door fridges put fresh food at eye level, which is a great way to encourage healthy eating. This model from Whirlpool did well in our tests and sometimes goes on sale for under $1,000!
Sure, sales of other finishes are growing—but America has spoken, and they must love cleaning fingerprints. That’s because stainless steel is still the most popular finish by far in every category from Home Depot—including this affordable dishwasher.
