Kitchen design trends are always changing. Is it time to update your kitchen’s look? Following these trends will keep your kitchen on the cutting edge of contemporary design.
10. Dark Cabinets
Light cabinetry has dominated the market for years due to its elegant and timeless look. But dark cabinets are on the rise, coming in shades of blues, blacks, and greens. Darker cabinetry can add a dramatic feel to any kitchen. Pair it with lighter-colored hardware, or splashes of brighter colors to make it really pop!
For countertops, you can’t go wrong with quartz. Its non-porous nature means it resists stains from wine, oil, tomatoes, juice, etc. better than marble, granite, or concrete. You also don’t have to worry about quartz countertops hiding bacteria or germs because of its non-porous surface. Best yet, it looks fabulous!
8. Concealed Storage
Kitchen space can sometimes be at a premium, that’s why it’s so important to design clever storage. There are a variety of solutions to meet your storage needs, including wastebasket cabinets, appliance garages, drawer dividers and more. Concealing your kitchen gear helps to maintain a clean and sleek look while keeping your tools within reach.
7. Kitchen Islands
A multipurpose island is a must-have these days. Islands can provide more storage, a dining space, as well as an additional prep area. Not only can an island meet all your functional kitchen needs, but it can serve as a beautiful focal point in your home as well. Try decorating with a centerpiece!
6. Feature Taps
Sink taps are one of the most frequently used items in your kitchen. With so many different styles and finishes available, you’re sure to find the right one for your home. Tap technology has also advanced in recent years. Many taps now offer instant boiling, filtered, and sparkling water options.
5. Multifunctional Sinks
A trough sink located on your kitchen island can make prep work so much easier. Dedicate your main kitchen sink to dishes, and use the trough to rinse fruits and vegetables. Trough sinks can also serve as an ice bath for bottled drinks during a party!
Rustic kitchens have been popular in the last few years, but to take it up a notch think about incorporating more wood into your space. If you want to feel closer to nature and serve meals in a calming environment, then wood cabinets, tables and other surfaces are the way to go!
3. Hidden Ventilation
Many people have opted for statement hoods in their kitchen over the past few years, but one trend that is taking hold is hiding your kitchen ventilation. Concealing your range hood is a great idea if you want the cabinetry, island, or other appliances to be the focal point of your kitchen.
2. Ceramic Tile
Although wood flooring has been the way to go, ceramic tile is certainly starting to get its well-deserved attention. With so many styles, shapes, and colors available it’s not hard to find the right ceramic tile for your home. Ceramic tiles are often easier to maintain as well since you don’t have to worry about scratching wood or water damage.
It may seem like minimalism is the reigning king of design and will never go away, but we’ve seen a growing trend in maximalist kitchens recently. Luxurious designs that mix colors, patterns, and textures can make any kitchen grand. Best part of maximalist kitchens is that by decorating a space with utensils, they’re always within reach!
