A black tiled backsplash is an easy way to add bold color to your kitchen renovation


Much like our predictions for luxury hotel bathroom trends for the upcoming year, we’re predicting a trend of bold and unexpected colors popping up in the kitchen. Think violet, turquoise or navy on cabinets, countertops and appliances. Does too much color turn you off? Try using a bold shade as an accent color in an otherwise neutral kitchen. Paint one wall in a breakfast nook a vivid violet, or install a tile backsplash in a glossy black. Even colorful cabinet pulls will go a long way in providing a fresh pop of color.




Granite has been king of the countertops for decades. But over the past few years, a new contender is challenging the throne. Marble and quartz match granite in durability as well as cost. Each is a refreshing alternative to granite, creating the perfect modern touch. Like granite, both marble and quartz come in a variety of colors, textures and veining designs. You’re sure to find the perfect piece to fit your kitchen design. Each is versatile enough for any décor and style.




A clean, modern kitchen with plenty of storage space

Opting for drawers in the kitchen instead of standard door cabinets can improve your storage solutions


Think you have enough storage in the kitchen? Think again. 2018 is all about smart storage solutions. This is especially true for small kitchens. In a small kitchen design, storage is a must. Try swapping out lower cabinets for drawers instead. This can double, even triple your storage capabilities. Plus, pull-out drawers are easier to organize and make it easier to see everything inside at a glance.

The VIGO Milburn Pull-Down Spray Kitchen Faucet offers the best of both world with its dual matte black/stainless steel finish


You know that we love matte black finishes here at VIGO. It’s the perfect mix of traditional and modern. The black color works as a surprising neutral against many different color combinations and design schemes. The matte finish creates unexpected texture that works in many different styles, in anything from rustic farmhouse-style kitchens to the sleek and modern. A matte black kitchen faucet is an easy way to update. You can also try matte black drawer and cabinet pulls. Another unexpected place to try a matte black finish? On appliances! Leave stainless steel in 2017 and opt for matte black fridges, ranges, and dishwashers.




We admit, a crisp all-white kitchen is temptingly timeless. Going gray with your cabinets can still create a bright clean look without looking washed out. Try a soft dove gray or bright silver paint color on your cabinets, with an all-white color scheme elsewhere in the kitchen. The gray will add unique dimension to your kitchen design.
