2010 Kitchen and Bath Trends – Traditional, Cherry, Nickel

Old is new again for 2010 as the National Kitchen & Bath Association reports that traditional styles will dominate kitchen and bath design this year.

Tile, porcelain, and natural stone will populate floors in kitchens and baths and brushed nickel is the fixture finish of choice for both. Granite is still the “in” countertop but quartz is closing the gap.

I don’t find these trends surprising considering economic recessions can cause people to return to perceived simpler elements; taking a step back, as it were. What do you think?
