9 Hot New Kitchen Trends for 2013

Thinking about giving your kitchen a new look in 2013? Boston.com has put together a list of the 9 hottest new trends for kitchens in 2013. These cover cabinets, appliances, and more. From Boston.com AFTER YEARS OF HUNKERING DOWN and spending less on renovations, many homeowners are ready to start giving in to the desire to cook up something new in their kitchens. “During the recession,” says Fred Miller, managing director of the Florida-based Home Improvement Research Institute, “a lot of what got cut were bigger-ticket discretionary items.
