What do you think of when you hear the term Maple? A big leafy tree that turns its leaves to bright orange and deep red, perhaps? But did you know that Maple is known for its hardness and minimal grain pattern, making it an ideal choice for today’s more contemporary themes? It’s true!
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association “2014 Design Trends Survey,” contemporary will be the fastest growing kitchen style, with 62 percent of respondents saying it’s on the upswing after ending 2013 in second place. Transitional maintained a very small lead as the number one look for kitchens. (NKBA.org)
The clean lines of contemporary soften the visual landscape, creating less tension, and a more relaxed vibe. And, Maple provides the durability and longevity homeowners need.
Most people are only going to remodel their current kitchen one time. According to the “2015 Remodeling Impact Report” from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, a complete kitchen renovation has a national median cost of $60,000. With that much under consideration, you want to make long-lasting choices. If you do, you could recover about 67% of your investment if you sell. (Houselogic.com)
Check out this great look – this is the Ziegler door style, showcased in Maple hardwood with a Toffee finish. It’s a fresh take on the simplicity of a Shaker style – it has picture frame molding, and a pillowed or softened look and feel, but still sporting the flat center panel. Imagine your new kitchen in this magnificent Maple style!
