7 Kitchen Cabinet Trends to Watch In 2016 – By Jacob Hurwith

7 Kitchen Cabinet Trends to Watch In 2016

All home remodeling trends come and go, but when you’re talking about the most trafficked room of the house, some say the heart of the home, it’s vital to know what others are doing in case you ever decide to sell.

Kitchen cabinet trends have not changed as much as other areas around the kitchen, such as kitchen countertops, but a few dominant trends have taken shape in 2015. Fortunately enough, many experts agree that most of the kitchen cabinet trends discussed below are not going away in 2016.

Personalized Cabinets

1. Personalized Cabinets

First and foremost, despite any of these trends, many homeowners are adding cabinet styles, colors and functions that fit their needs and desires. As time has evolved, cabinet companies have come up with numerous styles that match any home design or style. As a result, even homeowners who can afford them are passing over custom cabinets for more affordable, yet design-friendly, semi-custom cabinets.

Overall, in today’s world, there is no cookie-cutter kitchen cabinet design. Ask any kitchen expert for hot designs and they will almost certainly say that personalization and tailored designs are sticking around through 2015, into 2016.

2. Clean Lines & Subtle Design

Two other dominant trends for kitchen cabinets are clean lines and subtle designs. To ensure design flexibility in the long term, cabinet door styles have become simpler, using clean lines. As the modern style continues to gain steam, clean lines and subtle designs make ideal sense for anyone looking to upgrade their kitchen cabinets.

Matching another kitchen remodeling trend, clean lines go perfectly with black and white kitchens. As I noted in Kitchen Remodeling Trends For 2015-16, black and white kitchens tend to offset each other and give the kitchen a clean, sleek and visually appealing design. Clean lines, along with black and white kitchens, can also offset the tension between rustic, modern and transitional kitchens.

Shaker Cabinets

3. Shaker Style

Along with the classic black and white, shaker style cabinets have remained in vogue for years. At first glance, some associate shaker as a plain, square design that doesn’t leave much room for imagination. However, many more attractive versions of the shaker have come to life since the 1800’s.

One way to install terrific shaker cabinets is by using premium quality wood. With its simple design, shaker cabinets let the wood or material do the talking. Just like a knife does the work when you’re cutting an onion, the wood tends to speak the loudest when it comes to shaker cabinets.

Just how prevalent are shaker cabinets?

“Ninety-nine percent of the time, it’s a white painted-wood shaker door with a square picture and simple recessed center,” Anthony Maucieri, president of East Hill Cabinetry said.

White Cabinets

4. White, Gray & Neutral Colors

Along with the clean line theme, white kitchen cabinets are still quite popular, as you saw above, but gray, along with other neutral colors have began to set up shop.

Many homeowners are opting for refined neutral colors and earthy tones that work well with a variety of design elements. These colors not only provide a sense of warmth, but give you more design freedom to add bold colors elsewhere, providing a seamless blend throughout the house.

If you don’t want to replace your kitchen cabinets, but want to add a different pop of color, try painting. We even outlined the Best Way To Paint Kitchen Cabinets.

Functional Design

5. Functional Design

Every aspect of the home needs to casually blend function and design. One should never have to sacrifice one for the other, especially with today’s design improvements across the home. Luckily, kitchen cabinet designers have taken this to heart and created kitchen cabinets that not only look beautiful, but accommodate your needs for better storage, organization and access.

As we noted in 9 Secret Places That Can Add Storage To Your Small Kitchen, smart homeowners are utilizing every inch of space when it comes to their kitchen cabinets. Don’t neglect the space above your cabinets, below your cabinets, between your cabinets or in those tight corners. A few ways to employ some of these spaces are:

  • Install a toe-kick drawer under your lower cabinets.
  • Add containers or extra drawers above your upper cabinets.
  • Install pullout shelving.
  • Install a Lazy Susan in your corner cabinet (helps with your back).

We could all use more kitchen storage and these four ideas ensure that not matter what size your kitchen may be, no item will be left behind.

Horizontal Cabinets

6. Horizontal Orientation Cabinetry

Squares and vertical rectangles are still the preferred designs for kitchen cabinets, but according to Masterbrand Cabinets, Inc., there is a rise in horizontal cabinetry. As cabinets get wider, there is less of a need to stack cabinets (if you have enough storage). This not only makes access much easier, but gives your kitchen a cleaner, more refined look.

If you’re looking for more organization, you can also add drawer inserts to declutter all those pots, pans and numerous other kitchen utensils you have.

High-Tech Cabinet Options

7. High-Tech Cabinet Options

We live in a new world where we are always connected and kitchen designers have taken that to heart. As a result, many homeowners are adding a tech perspective to their kitchen cabinets such as built-in charging stations, hands-free functionality and tablet holders. These additions, along with other innovative kitchen additions, have made living in the 21st century that much easier.


Trends are trends because more and more people agree it is the right way to go. However, as I pointed out before, personalized cabinets and kitchens will never go away. One must feel comfortable in your own kitchen and as such, install kitchen cabinets that feel right to you and only you.

A Step-by-Step Guide to the Home Building Process

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: August 5, 2015


Here’s what to expect during the major phases of construction.

Building your new home is exciting, especially when you understand how the process works. The following overview outlines the typical steps your builder will take in the construction of a home and will help keep you abreast of what happens at key stages.

Keep in mind that the homebuilding process may vary from region to region and builder to builder, especially if you’re building an elaborate custom home. Be sure to ask your builder about his or her specific policies and procedures.


1. Prepare site and pour foundation: Often, site preparation and foundation work are performed by the same crew, but this may not be the case with a wooded lot. Using a backhoe and a bulldozer, the crew clears the site of rocks, debris and trees for the house and, if applicable, the septic system. The crew levels the site, puts up wooden forms to serve as a template for the foundation, and digs the holes and trenches. Footings (structures where the house interfaces with the earth that supports it) are installed. If your home is going to have a well, it will be dug at this point.

If the home has a full basement, the hole is dug, the footings are formed and poured, and the foundation walls are formed and poured. If it’s slab-on-grade, the footings are dug, formed and poured; the area between them is leveled and fitted with utility runs (e.g. plumbing drains and electrical chases); and the slab is poured.

Once concrete is poured into the holes and trenches, it will need time to cure. During this period, there will be no activity on the construction site.

After the concrete is cured, the crew applies a waterproofing membrane to the foundation walls; installs drains, sewer and water taps and any plumbing that needs to go into the first-floor slab or basement floor; and backfills excavated dirt into the hole around the foundation wall.

INSPECTION #1: When the curing process is complete, a city inspector visits the site to make sure foundation components are up to code and installed properly. This inspection may be repeated depending on the type of foundation (slab, crawl space or basement). Your builder will then remove the forms and begin coordinating step 2, the framing phase.


2. Complete rough framing: The floor systems, walls and roof systems are completed (collectively known as the shell or skeleton of the house). Plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) sheathing is applied to the exterior walls and roof, and windows and exterior doors are installed. The sheathing is then covered with a protective barrier known as a house wrap; it prevents liquid water from infiltrating the structure, while allowing water vapor to escape. This reduces the likelihood of mold and wood rot.


3. Complete rough plumbing, electrical and HVAC: Once the shell is finished, siding and roofing can be installed. At the same time, the electrical and plumbing contractors start running pipes and wires through the interior walls, ceilings and floors. Sewer lines and vents, as well as water supply lines for each fixture, are installed. Bathtubs and one-piece shower/tub units are put in place at this point because there’s more room to maneuver large, heavy objects.

Ductwork is installed for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system, and possibly the furnace. HVAC vent pipes are installed through the roof, and insulation is installed in the floors, walls and ceilings.

After the roofing goes on, the house is considered “dried in.” The electrician then installs receptacles for outlets, lights and switches and runs wires from the breaker panel to each receptacle. Wiring for telephones, cable TV and music systems is included in this work.

Note that HVAC ducts and plumbing are usually installed before wiring, because it’s easier to run wires around pipes and ducts than vice versa.

INSPECTIONS 2, 3 and 4: Rough framing, plumbing and electrical and mechanical systems are inspected for compliance with building codes. Most likely these will be three different inspections. At the very least, the framing inspection will be conducted separately from the electrical/mechanical inspections.

At this stage, drywall (also known as plasterboard, wallboard or gypsum board) is delivered to the building site. Sheetrock®, a registered trademark of USG Corporation, is sometimes used as a generic term for drywall.


4. Install insulation: Insulation plays a key role in creating a more comfortable, consistent indoor climate while significantly improving a home’s energy efficiency. One of the most important qualities of insulation is its thermal performance or R-value, which indicates how well the material resists heat transfer. Most homes are insulated in all exterior walls, as well as the attic and any floors that are located above unfinished basements or crawl spaces.

The most common types of insulation used in new homes are fiberglass, cellulose and foam. Depending on the region and climate, your builder may also use mineral wool (otherwise known as rock wool or slag wool); concrete blocks; foam board or rigid foam; insulating concrete forms (ICFs); sprayed foam; and structural insulated panels (SIPs).

Blanket insulation, which comes in batts or rolls, is typical in new-home construction. So is loose-fill and blown-in insulation, which is made of fiberglass, cellulose or mineral-wool particles. Another insulation option, liquid foam, can be sprayed, foamed-in-place, injected or poured. While it costs more than traditional batt insulation, liquid foam has twice the R-value per inch and can fill the smallest cavities, creating an effective air barrier.

Fiberglass and mineral-wool batts and rolls are usually installed in side walls, attics, floors, crawl spaces, cathedral ceilings and basements. Manufacturers often attach a facing such as kraft paper or foil-kraft paper to act as a vapor barrier and/or air barrier. In areas where the insulation will be left exposed, such as basement walls, the batts sometimes have a special flame-resistant facing.


5. Complete drywall and interior textures; start exterior finishes: Drywall is hung and taped so the seams between the boards aren’t visible, and drywall texturing (if applicable) is completed. The primer coat of paint is also applied after taping is complete. Contractors begin installing exterior finishes such as brick, stucco, stone and siding.


6. Finish interior trim; install exterior driveways and walkways: Interior doors, baseboards, door casings, window sills, moldings, stair balusters and other decorative trim are installed, along with cabinets, vanities and fireplace mantels and surrounds. Walls get a finish coat of paint and are wallpapered where applicable.

Generally, exterior driveways, walkways and patios are formed at this stage. Many builders prefer to wait until the end of the project before pouring the driveway because heavy equipment (such as a drywall delivery truck) can damage concrete. But some builders pour the driveway as soon as the foundation is completed so that when homeowners visit the construction site, they won’t get their shoes muddy.


7. Install hard-surface flooring and countertops; complete exterior grading:Ceramic tile, vinyl and wood flooring are installed as well as countertops. Exterior finish grading is completed to ensure proper drainage away from the home and prepare the yard for landscaping.


8. Finish mechanical trims; install bathroom fixtures: Light fixtures, outlets and switches are installed and the electrical panel is completed. HVAC equipment is installed and registers completed. Sinks, toilets and faucets are put in place.


9. Install mirrors, shower doors and finish flooring; finish exterior landscaping: Mirrors, shower doors and carpeting are installed, and final cleanup takes place. Trees, shrubs and grass are planted and other exterior landscaping completed.

INSPECTION #5: A building-code official completes a final inspection and issues a certificate of occupancy (C.O.). If any defects are found during this inspection, a follow-up inspection may be scheduled to ensure that they’ve been corrected.


10. Final walkthrough: Your builder will walk you through your new home to acquaint you with its features and the operation of various systems and components, and explain your responsibilities for maintenance and upkeep as well as warranty coverage and procedures. This is often referred to as a pre-settlement walkthrough. It’s also an opportunity to spot items that need to be corrected or adjusted, so be attentive and observant. Examine the surfaces of countertops, fixtures, floors and walls for possible damage. Sometimes disputes arise because the homeowner discovers a gouge in a countertop after move-in, and there’s is no way to prove whether it was caused by the builder’s crew or the homeowner’s movers.

A Few Words about Inspections: Your new home will be inspected periodically during the course of construction. In addition to mandated inspections for code compliance, your builder may conduct quality checks at critical points in the process. (In the story above, we point out when these inspections typically take place.) The idea is to catch as many potential problems as possible before construction is finished, though some issues may not surface until you’ve lived in the home for a period of time.

Talk to your builder early on about attending inspections, with or without your real-estate agent. Even if your presence is not required, it’s an opportunity to learn more about what’s behind the walls of your new home and how everything works. If you’re planning to hire your own inspector to do an additional review of the home, notify your builder prior to the start of construction.

For safety as well as logistical reasons, builders discourage customers from dropping in unannounced at the construction site. If you’d like to pay a visit, be sure to arrange it in advance. Chances are your builder will conduct regular walkthroughs to bring you up to speed on the progress of the work.

Working with the builder who’ll construct your new home is the fifth of six steps to your new home. Here in our New Home Guide, you’ll find helpful and inspiring articles, slideshows and videos that will make your new home journey easier and more rewarding.

Selecting the right builder is a key step in the journey that leads to your dream home.

Asking builders the 15 questions below will help you choose the right builder to create your new home— and give you confidence in your choice

These questions will also help you better understand key steps in the building process and the decisions you’ll make, in partnership with the builder, to bring your new home to life.

  1. How many years have you been in business? How many homes have you built?
  2. Are you licensed (where required) and insured?
  3. How do you compare yourself to other builders? What are the most important benefits of the homes you build?
  4. What type of warranty do you offer?
  5. Can you give me references from prior home buyers? Do you build model homes I can tour? If not, can you help me make an appointment to see a home you built for another customer?
  6. What are the major energy-saving features of homes you build?
  7. Do you build only from home plans you supply? Or can I provide my own set of plans?
  8. What standard features do your homes include? What options and upgrades can I select?
  9. Who will oversee the construction of my home? Who should I contact with any questions I may have?
  10. How and when can I make changes or upgrades before and during construction?
  11. How and when will the final price for my home be determined?
  12. How often (and when) will I have access to the home during the building process?
  13. How long will my home take to complete?
  14. Does the community have a Home Owners Association and/or an Architectural Review Committee? If so, may I get a copy of their rules and the amount of any fees?
  15. What’s your process for inspection at key points of construction, at final walk-through, and to address any matters that need to be corrected or finalized?

There may be other important questions you wish to ask, so feel free to add them. However, experts agree the list above is a great starting point to select the firm to build your new home.

Congratulations! You’ve embarked on an exciting journey that will lead to your dream home. As you progress through each stage —finding, buying, designing and building your new home— there are many great resources here at our Resource Center to assist you.

Konter Development Company Announces Development of Historic Piece of Property

May 13, 2015 – Konter Development Company recently announced plans to develop a historic piece of land located in the Bonna Bella area directly off of Laroche Avenue. Traditionally known as the German Country Club, the waterfront property was purchased by its previous owners in 1918, and has operated as a social gathering place for many renowned Savannah families over the last century.

Bluffside at Country Club Creek consists of over 20 acres of lush landscape with panoramic views of Country Club Creek which leads directly into the Herb River.  Konter Development Company plans to develop the site into a new residential neighborhood, which will entail 7 waterfront home sites, 1 marsh front home site, and 58 interior lots. With respect to the German Country Club’s commitment to family and community oriented activities, the neighborhood, which has been designated as Bluffside at Country Club Creek, will include multiple amenities including an community fishing pier, activity center, and community green and playground.

Konter Development Company has compiled a team of experts to ensure the development of the property pays homage to its history while adding a new market of housing for potential buyers in an ever growing area of Chatham County. The architectural design of homes within Bluffside at Country Club Creek will be similar to other residential projects the company has completed in neighborhoods such as Palmetto Row and Tabby Village, both located within Sandfly, adjacent to Isle of Hope. Wide front porches, authentic shutters, and craftsmen exterior details are just a few examples of the detailed craftsmanship that will be consistent components of each residence.

Harvey Gilbert of Gilbert & Ezelle Real Estate Services, who served as brokers for marketing the property, stated that “the seller’s are very pleased to have sold the property to a highly experienced developer and homebuilder of integrity such as Konter Development Company who will successfully execute a carefully prepared plan for the benefit of the property and surrounding neighborhood.”

With over 50 years of experience in the real estate and construction industry Jerry Konter feels this was an extremely rare opportunity for his company and his family, which includes three generations who currently work with Konter. “As a multi-generational Savannah family business we are excited to develop this unique and wonderful property, with an eye to its history and a vision for its legacy,” says Jerry Konter, President of Konter Development Company.

Construction will start within the next three months, and the seven waterfront lots located along Country Club Creek are now available for reservations through Konter Development Company. For additional information on Bluffside at Country Club Creek, please contact Mark Konter at 912-341-4865.

Holiday lighting safety tips

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: November 29, 2011

Safety in your home is always important, and the Holiday time is no exception.

Many of us are decorating with electric lights for the holidays and the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) recently published these safety tips and links for additional information.  We want to encourage everyone to enjoy the holidays while keeping safe.

Electrical Safety Tips:


To ensure that your holiday season is safe from electrical hazards, follow these safety tips:

  • Before decorating, read and follow the manufacturers’ instructions for installation and maintenance of all decorative electrical products.
  • Indoors and out, use lights and other electrical decorations certified by a recognized independent testing laboratory, such as CSA, UL, or ETL.
  • Outdoors, use lights and other electrical decorations certified for outdoor use.
  • Carefully inspect each decoration before plugging into an outlet.
  • Cracked, frayed, loose or bare wires, and loose connections may cause a serious electrical shock or start a fire.  Replace damaged items.
  • Do not connect more than three light strings together.
  • Light strings with screw-in bulbs should have no more than 50 bulbs connected together.

Konter Quality Homes wishes you a safe and wonderful Holiday season.
