A look back on 2018 – Part 2

January 18, 2019 | Waters Edge

Welcome to Part 2 of our special two series article. A new year brings new trends in kitchen design and trends, however, Better Homes and Gardens (BHG) believes these trends of 2018 are here to stay. Keep reading to learn how we incorporated these details into our homes at Waters Edge.


White Done Right

BHG believes white kitchens never go out of style, and we agree! White kitchens allow you to decorate and accessorize according to your unique style. The Poplar bungalow on 537 follows this design trend with a twist- a dark backsplash. Adding a touch of dark grey grounds the room and grants the white cabinets and countertops to pop. We paired these elements with a natural wood floor to add a touch of warmth to this bright white space.


Deep Drawers

Deep kitchen drawers add a surprisingly functional feature to any kitchen. Rather than reaching into a cabinet for your dishes, drawers move items towards you for ease of access. Say goodbye to the Tupperware falling out of the cabinets! Our custom build on lot 217 features the Poplar Floor Plan and includes a uniquely styled kitchen with deep brown cabinets, a neutral backsplash, and a granite countertops. Above all, this kitchen incorporates deep drawers instead of shelves for ease of use.


Wood-Like Floors

Hardwood is always a nice touch, however BHG believes we can’t discount other materials just yet. Vinyl and laminate materials have come a long way from the manufactured-look of the past making way for more natural styles that are highly durable. We chose a stunning laminate for The Oak on lot 611. This particular flooring features multiple neutral tones that were (and still are!) highly popular among buyers.


Ceiling Treatments

The space out of regular view is often overlooked in the home, yet the design opportunities are endless when it comes to the ceiling. The open-concept floor plan in The Juniper on lot 216 creates a seamless flow between the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. What makes this space even more unique are the tray ceiling that add depth to all three spaces. Tray ceilings add height and texture to a room, creating an interesting feature on an otherwise ordinary design element.


Stainless Steel

Even with the latest material options, stainless steel still reigns in the world of appliances. According to BHG, stainless steel in residental design stems from both professional and commercial roots, and the neutral material looks sleek in any style of kitchen. The U-shaped kitchen in the Willow on lot 212 includes stainless steel appliances to incorporate a modern touch to this traditional kitchen concept.
