Our Top 10 Favorite Kitchen Elements in Annapolis

Gaining inspiration from your neighbors is a great way to start the process for your own kitchen remodel. We have noticed some exciting trends in what Annapolis homeowners are choosing for their beautiful new kitchens. Here are some of our favorite elements for Annapolis area kitchen remodels.

Large kitchen island1. Large Islands

If you entertain regularly, or just like to have your family gather at somewhere other than the formal kitchen table, then a larger island is a must. Consider a split level raised countertop that allows you to serve directly from your prep space.

2. Statement Backsplashes

Beautiful tile or stone can bring a splash of color and texture to your kitchen’s backsplash, especially if you have chosen all white in your cabinets and countertops. Annapolis homeowners tend to choose blues and greys to complement the coastal landscape.

Large kitchen window3. Large Windows

Whether you are on the water with a beautiful view or simply want to allow in more light, large windows are a must in Annapolis. Adding a kitchen-adjacent bay window, a garden window over the sink, or a row of casement windows can make your space feel brighter and more open.

4. Mixing White and Natural Wood Finish

All-white kitchens have been in style for the past few years, but mixing white cabinetry with natural wood finishes brings in a coastal feel that works well in Annapolis. Consider adding a natural wood island, vent hood, flooring, or even beams in the ceiling.

Pendant lights5. Pendant Lights

Interesting lighting brings a sense of design and atmosphere to any kitchen, both acting a practical illumination and task lighting over a sink or island. In Annapolis, we have seen styles ranging from industrial copper to intricate silver designs.

6. Grey Tones

Most of the time, people think of blue as the coastal aesthetic in Annapolis, but a depth of greys can also convey the feeling of being oceanside in the Mid-Atlantic. Think of stormy skies and frothing water when considering a moody seaside color palate.

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)7. Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) replicates the look of natural wood or stone, without the maintenance. It is an excellent option for high traffic areas or homes with pets because it is hard-wearing and easy to clean.

8. Blue Accent Cabinetry

Pops of blue are a great way to add coastal style to the kitchen, and with specialty cabinets becoming more and more popular, colorful options have become more affordable.

shaker cabinets9. Shaker Style Cabinets

This transitional design element allows homeowners to combine traditional and modern designs cohesively. Shaker style cabinets are perfect for Annapolis residents who want to combine historical items like vintage china and modern elements such as marbled quartz countertops.

10. Glass Front Cabinets

Glass-front cabinetry, with accent lighting inside, is a great way to show off beautiful dishes, but it has even more practicality than that. These cabinets will make your space look and feel larger and more open.
