The National Association of Home Builders estimates that Hawaii homeowners will spend $622 million on home improvements in 2018. And for many homeowners, these improvements will be centered on kitchens and bathrooms. As some of the most used areas of a home, these rooms are often places of refuge, nourishment and rejuvenation, and a remodel would only improve them further from there.

If you’re thinking about updating your kitchen or bathroom, it may be difficult to know where to begin. Consider three simple things: what you’re trying to accomplish, how much you’re willing to spend and a list of needs and wants, suggests Brenton Liu of Design Trends Construction. “We always balance these three items in each design.”

In the following list, you will find a collection of local designers and builders to help you through the remodeling process from start to finish.

The Latest Design Trends

Flat or Matte Colors

Colors like dark blue, burgundy and even utility green are becoming increasingly popular choices for homeowners, Liu says. Unlike semi-glossy paints, matte finishes can disguise scuffs and marks easily, giving off a smooth, clean appearance.

Unique Finishes

Move over stainless steel! Appliances done in brushed and matte colors, like black, slate or even gold, are a rising trend that is as practical as it is aesthetic. Not only do these finishes offer unique color options, they mask fingerprints and smears better, too.

LEDs Everywhere

The options and applications for
LEDs in your home are nearly limitless, including in drawers and above toe-kicks, Liu adds. You can even install motion sensors, upping both the convenience and safety factors around your kitchen and bathroom.
