LED lighting in the kitchen will grow in popularity in 2011.

NKBA Releases 2011 Kitchen & Bath Trends

 
Want to keep your home up with the times? Then take a gander at the latest release from the National Kitchen & Bath Association: "11 Kitchen and Bath Trends for 2011."

The results of a survey of over 100 NKBA member designers, the release predicts seven kitchen trends and four bathroom trends for 2011, including Shaker styles and dark finishes in the kitchen (not simultaneously, of course) as well as quartz countertops and environmental friendliness in the bathroom.

The prediction for a rise in LED lighting makes sense, as that technology is gaining traction in the wake of the Energy Independence and Security Act passed by Congress in 2007, which will see improved standards for incandescent light bulbs and an increase in residential use of halogen, CFL and LED lighting options.

Take a look at the full NKBA release to see all the trends. There are some great ideas to help your next kitchen remodel or bathroom remodel or assist in the bathroom and/or kitchen design process.
