Families spend a large portion of time in one room specifically, the kitchen. This probably isn’t a surprise to many, especially with the ever-so-popular growth of open floor plans. Now the kitchen flows right into the living room making it even more commonly used. It’s a big reason people want to keep their kitchens updated with the latest trends. Here are some of our favorite trends right now:
Gray or “greige” colors. This is definitely the most popular color trend right now and it looks like it’s here to stay. If you want to add this color to your kitchen then a great option would be choosing this for your kitchen cabinets. It would also look great on the walls paired with light or dark cabinets. Another beautiful choice would be to utilize this color in the backsplash.
Make it functional! Kitchen cabinets are no longer just about looks. There are a plethora of hardware options from easy-close doors; to places to hide the trash can; to spice racks for the drawers. You wouldn’t believe all of the options that are available, so make sure to keep this in mind when designing your kitchen. It could make your life easier!
Keep it neutral. This is great for resale, but it also lets you customize your kitchen whenever you’d like. You can change decor for the seasons very easily or you might be following a certain trend right now, but having a neutral design will make it easy to switch to whatever the trend is next!
Two-Toned Cabinets. This is a great way to add some personality to your kitchen while still keeping it neutral (ish). Add some color with the lower cabinets while keeping a more neutral color on the upper cabinets; this way the color won’t be too overwhelming. If you’d prefer to keep it more simple then try a gray or greige color on the lower with white on top, following a somewhat Scandinavian theme.
Glass doors and open shelving. The worst thing about this trend is that it forces you to be tidy, but let’s be honest… we could all use a little more of that. This is a beautiful look and can also be a great option for a small kitchen because it makes the room appear to be much larger.
Trends come and go, but we are hoping these stick around for a while!
