Millennials Want Clean, White Kitchens
Millennials prefer to keep to the basics when it comes to designing their kitchen cabinets, choosing appliances and selecting kitchen countertops. A majority of 31% want their kitchen cabinets white, while the other two-thirds look to brown, black or gray. Stainless steel is a big winner with 64% of Millennials preferring it over the distant second and third of black and white. And to top off those white cabinets, 62% of Millennials want granite or natural stone in their kitchens.
Many Newland communities provide the white, clean spaces Millennials, and other generations, crave for their kitchens. Providing a timeless palette, white kitchens allow for flexibility to decorate, incorporating modern with rustic while being a clean, fresh neutral.
Stainless Steel Appliances and White Kitchens Are a Perfect Match
With white cabinets, trim, and backsplashes, stainless steel appliances with black accents can give the owners flexibility to change things up with wall paint, countertops, and accents to add color how they like and later make inexpensive updates.
