Remodel Your Kitchen for a New-Tech Market

Remodel Your Kitchen for a New-Tech Market

Are you planning to put your house on the market or stay put and update where you are? Consider these three Denver kitchen remodel ideas that highlight key kitchen design trends to attract tech-savvy homebuyers.

In recent studies surrounding the best cities to live and work in, Colorado has repeatedly been in the spotlight as one of the most sought-after places for jobs. This is especially true in the technology and IT industries. According to Forbes, “Denver’s relatively central location makes it a natural location as a distribution hub for the American west, while also supporting a number of growing industries in technology and telecommunications.”

Many of these Colorado newcomers are settling into careers with IBM or Oracle. Others are planning their own tech startups in what’s set to be a Rocky Mountain Silicon Valley. A large group of tech workers will be looking for desirable residences in Denver’s beautiful and natural setting.

Sleek cabinet design and integrated smart appliances

If your aim is to attract tech professionals new to the city, consider including smart technology appliances in your kitchen design. Tech-lovers will appreciate the sleek design of a brushed-chrome refrigerator or convection oven paired with frameless or flat-panel cabinetry. Add a modern aesthetic to the space with metal cabinet accents and smooth drawer pulls.

Countertop expansion

Many new homebuyers prefer to have a kitchen with ample room. Whether cooking meals, entertaining friends, or working on projects, they enjoy extra counter space to complete tasks. Current countertop trends include expansive butcher blocks, stainless steel islands, and glass countertops with underlighting in an array of colors and patterns.

Eco-friendly materials

In addition to energy-efficient appliances, more people have become drawn to eco-friendly materials that can be showcased throughout the kitchen. Many eco-friendly products lend themselves to a natural look which integrates well with high-tech gadgets. Picture an electronics charging station on top of a solid bamboo block or an espresso machine on top of an IceStone recycled-glass countertop. Environmentally-friendly materials mesh well and bridge the natural and technological features of a contemporary kitchen, offering a perfect representation of Denver’s growing aesthetic and discerning style.
