Pros and Cons of 3 Kitchen Remodeling Trends

Kitchen remodeling trends serve as inspiration and, occasionally, points of debate. Rockville homeowners are excited to incorporate kitchen remodeling trends in an upcoming project. However, we don’t want to see anyone making the mistake of adopting designs that aren’t entirely practical, functional, or visually-pleasing as others would lead you to believe. Of course, these are just a couple of our thoughts. Our talented designers at Signature Kitchens, Additions, and Baths would love to work with you to plan a beautiful new Rockville kitchen with everything you need and want!


Rockville homeowners are excited to incorporate kitchen remodeling trends in an upcoming project. These trends could have some ups and downs.

All-White Kitchen

One of the kitchen remodeling trends that have stuck around the past few years in Rockville is the all-white kitchen design. A completely white color-schemed kitchen has plenty of merit being elegant and timeless, but admittedly it’s a tad overdone given its immense popularity. This isn’t necessarily a remodeling trend to avoid. Instead, we encourage homeowners to think bigger and consider ways to create more visual interest in their kitchen design, even if they prefer to stick with a white color palette. White walls, cabinets, appliances, tiles, and more still have their place in any Rockville kitchen. Just don’t overlook the myriad of ways to bring color and variety into your kitchen remodel as well!

Pot Racks

Hanging or mounting your kitchen tools can be a unique way to create space-saving storage and free up cabinet and counter space. While a few smaller hooks or bars for frequently-used pots and pans could certainly be a handy way to store and display your cookware, avoid an overhead pot rack if possible. Simply put, this kitchen remodeling trend adds too much visual clutter. The rack itself could be an interesting design piece that first draws you to install one. Once put into use in the daily hustle-and-bustle of kitchen life, some Rockville homeowners can regret this decision. Plus, if you aren’t the owners of the most pristine-looking set of modern pots and pans, do you really want to see them collecting dust in the open air?

Mounted Microwave Over the Range

This is another one of those kitchen remodeling trends that caught on and became a “standard” of sorts in many kitchens. The reality is, mounting the microwave over the range only saves a marginal amount of counter or cabinet space. There are far more ideas that can stow or hide your smaller kitchen appliances with custom kitchen cabinetry solutions. You sacrifice the opportunity to use a more robust and statement range hood design and cause yourself extra inconvenience if you ever need or want to replace your microwave. Plus, this appliance’s placement can become inaccessible to shorter household members or those with mobility impairments.
