Kitchen’s Latest Trends – Slate appliances/brick backsplashes

Everyone who loves to cook wants a beautiful new kitchen, right?  Even if you can’t afford the expense of a “gourmet” kitchen – what are some of the latest trends  you can add to make your kitchen look and feel updated?

New appliances always improve the look of your kitchen and the latest trend is slate appliances.  I love stainless appliance but they are hard to keep clean and show scratches.   Also, many people don’t like stainless because they seem cold and commercial.  So check out the new slate appliances.  They have a similar look to stainless, but are a warmer and more sophisticated alternative.  They resist fingerprints, are easy to clean and are very attractive.

Backsplashes are always fun to select and a great way to add color, interest and texture to your kitchen.  Lately, brick has become a common choice for the sophisticated buyer.  The brick backsplash is actually a ceramic tile made to look like brick.  It’s very complimentary to granite countertops and adds wonderful warmth to your kitchen. And, of course, brick looks great with slate appliances.
