Current Kitchen Trends

Kitchen_ContemporaryIf you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen, read about these trends that are popular now:

Coffee/Drink Stations
Self-serve beverage stations are popular. Look at this one from Wolf.

Granite and marble have been the most popular countertop materials, but there are other choices. You may want to consider quartz or wood. When adding countertops, be sure to add more counter space so you have all of the room needed for cooking.

Cabinets set the mood for a kitchen and you can either resurface or install new ones depending upon your budget. Pay close attention to hardware for your cabinets as these can really help to make your cabinets stand out.

Lighting needs to complement the cabinets and countertops. Don’t forget to add under cabinet lighting to add ambiance to the kitchen. LED and recessed can lights can set the mood in a kitchen.

Open Layout
Open kitchen spaces are very popular. If your remodel budget can accommodate this – all the better. If not, try to add popular features such as updated appliances, a double sink, double ovens and a cook top. Kitchens that flow into living spaces with an open floor plan are becoming more and more popular.

Muted colors are the current rage. Charcoal and grey are trending colors in kitchens. Also popular are pale green gray and pale blue.

Charging Stations
Many kitchens are now being designed to accommodate charging stations and storage for mobile phones and tablets with hidden drawers.

Brass accessories are popular once more. A flashback from the 80’s, we suggest using satin finishes rather than shiny ones.

Clean Lines
A 2016 kitchen can be traditional but still offer clean lines with not so many frilly details. Midcentury design remains popular with a retro 60s vibe. This entails minimalistic design with light woods and no clutter. Think Nordic simplicity.
