Most Popular Designs for a Kitchen Remodel
Is your kitchen is the heart of your home?
Do you spend most of your time in your kitchen entertaining, spending time with family and friends, or just having a glass of wine to relax after a hard day?
Your kitchen is unique – from the style of the fixtures in your space to the finishing touches that make this room one that you love to spend time in. While everyone has their own vision for what makes a perfect kitchen, there are some general styles that have stood the test of time.
If you’re considering a kitchen remodel in Ann Arbor, check out the details of these most popular kitchen designs to get some inspiration:
- Rustic farmhouse kitchens: When you think of a farmhouse kitchen what comes to mind? Fresh-baked bread, sunlit spaces, and family memories? We agree! This style remains a top choice for homeowners around the country. A rustic style adds comfortable, inviting elements that make your kitchen the ideal gathering space. This style includes a few key elements such as open shelving (removing the doors of a few cabinets), a farmhouse style kitchen sink (a large, deep basin sink), and oversized features such as large wooden tables and fireplaces.
- Sleek, modern kitchens: If you have a more cutting edge style, this might be a good option for you. Sleek styling and strong horizontal lines combined with industrial elements make the perfect 21st century kitchen. A few key elements of this style include frameless cabinets (the cabinet door overlays the box of the cabinet), and simple, clean accessories. Less is more with this style – integrated hardware, glass backsplashes, and solid counters are all smart choices for a modern space.
- Inviting and warm traditional kitchens: A traditional style kitchen isn’t to be confused with farmhouse style! Some key differences are architectural details – sweeping arches, moldings, and raised panel cabinets - that are all found in traditional kitchens. Other key elements of traditional style kitchens are classic stains (unlike modern kitchens, distressed and aged stains are the go-to choice), stylish lighting (chandeliers, lantern-style lighting), and natural flooring (hardwood or stone as opposed to laminate).

We came to love our team! Frank became part of the family. Every day the house was cleaned and organized. And Mary had great design ideas and listened to our passions to create the best spa experience.

Ron and Melissa are amazing and Cy became part of our family. Our home looks amazing because of Alpha!
Daryl & Amy, Ann Arbor, MI
The whole team was approachable and responsive to my emails and questions. I would recommend this company for any project, big or small.
Louise, Ann Arbor, MI
The deciding factor in choosing to work with Alpha was their confidence in the project and completion time line. They have done other renovations for us and it was a positive experience once again.
Debbie, Chelsea, MI
We felt very comfortable when we initially visited Alpha. We felt the staff was open, honest, and wouldn't mislead us.
Jeffrey & Kim, Ypsilanti, MI
Alpha Design's priorities are happy customers!
Hugh, Ann Arbor, MI
Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!
Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI
We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!
Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI
The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.
Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI
We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
