Kitchen Remodelings Are Getting Deluxe

Peter Coy

Architects say these are the latest trends in kitchens:

--Bigger pantries

--Wine storage areas

--Recycling centers

--Duplicate appliances

--Computer work areas

--Warming drawers

--Separate areas for food preparation (and you thought that a kitchen was the food-preparation area)

--Bamboo floors, which are considered ecologically "green"

--Concrete countertops, also regarded as "green"

--Drinking water filtration systems

All this comes from a report by Kermit Baker, chief economist of the American Institute of Architects, based on the fourth-quarter AIA Home Design Trends Survey. For more, click here.
