Trends come and go in the blink of an eye, but one trend that’s still going strong is what I call “elegant simplicity.” Elegant simplicity is a quieter design that incorporates high quality materials. Recently, many clients have requested this style in their redesigns. As a designer, I believe that not every space has to be extravagant and busy. From simple backsplashes to painted kitchen cabinets, here are a few ways to make your next redesign simple, yet elegant.

Simple Backsplashes
Nothing makes me happier than finding the perfect kitchen backsplash. To achieve elegant simplicity, a clean backsplash with subway tiles is the way to go.

Marble and Stone Countertops
Marble and stone countertops are the epitome of elegance. When choosing a countertop, consider ones with basic edge profiles such as square, beveled or waterfall.

Painted Kitchen Cabinets
A simple coat of paint can elevate your kitchen cabinets. I recommend a white coat without additional glazes.

Pendant Chandeliers
It’s no surprise that I like to incorporate pendant chandeliers into my redesigns. Chandeliers have the ability to be so versatile. From bathrooms to kitchens, these fixtures are the perfect addition to your space.

Elegant simplicity is a timeless design trend. What does elegant simplicity mean to you? Let us know on Twitter!
