It has been an interesting year for home design. Tons of new styles have been introduced to consumers and at the same time many older ones are coming back. Your kitchen says a lot about you, and as a main gathering space and focal point in your home, why not show it off? With social dynamics and technology constantly changing, so will your kitchen design. Here are some of the hottest trends in kitchen design you haveto get your hands on.
Shelving: This design trend is growing at a rapid pace. Adding shelving to your kitchen will make this space feel and appear larger. Shelves will create an open, clean look that many homeowners are going after. And when placed appropriately throughout your kitchen, shelves will complement your cabinetry nicely. Instead of horizontal shelving, vertical dividers are the go-to right now. This type of storage is a stylish, attractive alternative to storing plates, cookie sheets, etc. So, if you’re thinking of innovative new ways to store everyday kitchen items, explore this option, you might be surprised at how a few shelves completely transform your space.
Cabinet Colors: Whites, grays, and dark colors are hot! White will always be a kitchen favorite because it’s clean, simple, beautiful and above all, timeless. It doesn’t matter what style your kitchen boasts, white is sure to be a big trend for years! Gray is another popular cabinet color because of its versatility. It’s a stunning, elegant color that looks amazing when paired with any design element. Something new that’s hot and trending is dark, jewel tones like navy, plum and emerald green. Cabinets boasting these rich colors create a unique, elegant ambiance that is really admired right now. Bold cabinet colors may not be the most fashionable when compared to whites and grays, but they are certainly catching up.
Countertops: Quartz still remains on top when it comes to high-end countertops. It’s durable, anti-microbial, simple to clean and is built to last. Modern technology has allowed manufacturers to create quartz in a wide range of colors and designs, including stone patterns. With a number of homeowners choosing cabinetry colors like white, gray, or taupe, fresh quartz options are really hot in kitchen trends right now, too.
Textures: We’ve seen kitchen trends featuring materials with really great texture. Islands are boasting rough-cut wood to play off natural elements, and metal piping is being used to showcase an industrial look and feel. Backsplashes that are beveled or sculpted have become increasingly popular, while generating a picture-perfect focal point in your kitchen. Adding materials with some texture will create a different - but extremely classy - finish to your kitchen design.
