Â Traditional style cabinets remained the most popular for
kitchen and bath designs in 2011, followed by the Shaker style cabinetry

Darker cabinet finish accounts for 53% of 2011 remodels,
surpassing the distressed finish, which was most popular in 2010.

Cabinet integrated trash compactors and/or recycling
pullouts were requested in 89% of 2011 kitchen designs.
Oil-rubbed bronze, polished chrome and polished nickel all
remained popular in 2011.Â But satin
nickel was the most preferred finish for faucets rising from 41% last year to
63% in the kitchen, and from 45% to 57% in the bathrooms.
â€œGreenâ€ is not just an environmental trend.Â It also happens to be the most popular
bathroom color of 2011!Â Designers say
that itâ€™s due to the fact that green creates a spa-like atmosphere and is
soothing and relaxing.
