Until recently, design shows and magazines have suggested using vibrant colors, graphic patterns, and layers of texture solely in home accessories and other areas than can be easily and affordably changed. But now the more permanent, pricier parts of a kitchen are going bold and idiosyncratic. Appliance fronts and entire ranges sport red, blue, and yellow hues rather than neutral stainless steel, white, or black. Big Chill Appliances in Boulder, Colo., says its most popular custom colors are beach blue, cherry red, and buttercup yellow. Backsplashes display graphic patterns in large, colorful tiles instead of spa-calming solid white, gray, and pale blue in diminutive subway tiles. And even countertops are getting in on the act with swirling, exotic designs from Formica and other manufacturers. The trends being seen in cabinetry—often the most visible and costly part of a kitchen remodel—include deep blues, greens, and even red paint choices, a stark contrast to the former safer bets of white or pale wood. Textured, highly decorative wallpaper has returned too, after years of being banished. And everywhere, black—or navy—is the new gray, according to Chicago designer Rebecca Pogonitz, owner of GoGo Design Group.
Zoom in on whats extra-special. Good photography always helps a listing shine, but uber-personalized choices call for more than overall room shots, Katz says. He advises making certain features look aspirational—like theyre part of a curated Instagram feed. Pogonitz also sees social media as an inspiration for listing materials. “This is how millennials communicate, build interest, and gain followers,” she says, recommending agents use close-ups and short videos to relay a story about features that showcase personal style. However, if theres anything in the room that may not appeal, Kim Cantine with Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty in Rhinebeck, N.Y., suggests not highlighting it. “Buyers will see it in person, but you dont have to play it up,” she says.
