Nearly 9 in 10 homeowners plan to renovate their homes in the near future with half of them planning to do so within the next year. Now more than ever it’s important to know what’s cooking in kitchen design trends for 2016.

We caught up with HGTV design stars David Bromstad and Emily Henderson for the scoop at the launch party for LG’s new black stainless steel series.

“As a designer, I love stainless steel. It’s very classic, but it’s also nice to have something new like another option out there and the black stainless steel is the new option. It makes it feel really modern and really fresh.”

“On top of that a real nice addition is that this finish is smudge resistant, fingerprint resistant.”

“What’s hot in kitchen design right now is not to do the whole matchy-matchy cabinets. It really isn’t. Doing a different lower cabinet to a different higher cabinet.”

“And also brass. But brass has been hot for awhile. Brass or gold tone hardware.”

David and Emily along with industry insiders from real estate and architectural design organizations discuss how homeowners can increase the value of their home by updating kitchens with premium appliances like LG’s black stainless steel series.

“People have to be smart about how they do it. You don’t want to take the highest end of your stainless steel package and put it in a lower priced home. You should go with the highest technology package that you can get, appliance package that you can get and design package.”

“So again matching the value of every choice.”

“That’s just key.”

“It’s the first time in 15 years that stainless steel really has a new color. Now you have the opportunity to make your appliances be a part of your design in your kitchen. So what we’ve done is brought together Emily Henderson and David Bromstad, two of the HGTV stars, and they brought to life Pintrest boards. All about how to make a kitchen really explode with design possibilities . We’re also announcing our Pintrest contest for consumers.”

Through January 29th create your own Pinspiration board of anything that inspires kitchen design with LG’s newest black stainless finish for a chance to win a kitchen suite of your own, $25,000 and a design consult with Emily or David.
