Having a beautiful kitchen is the ideal for many homeowners. However, most homeowners aren’t as experienced when it comes to kitchen design as they might think. For this reason, you may wish to leave it to the experts when it comes to designing a kitchen for your home that’s going to give you many years of enjoyment.
All of that said, it’s still wise to have an idea about what the current trends are in kitchen design. This will help you when it comes time to plan your new kitchen with an interior designer! With all of this in mind, let’s take a look at seven kitchen design trends that you absolutely need to know!
1. Smart-Looking Hoods
With many homeowners opting for open kitchen designs (more on this later), there’s been a concomitant rise in the inclusion of smart-looking range hoods in any kitchen’s look.
2. Paint it Black
Contemporary styling is becoming more popular and more and more prevalent. As such, white cabinets are starting to fall in popularity, and black cabinets are definitely rising!
3. Color, Color, Color
Now, not everyone wants a contemporary black-and-white kitchen. If you’re not going this route, then understand that vibrant colors are definitely another trend in kitchen design.
4. No Matchy Matchy
Once it would’ve been unthinkable to use two different kinds of counter material in a kitchen space. Now mixing and matching materials like tile, wood, granite and marble is the name of the game.
5. Hang ‘Em High
If you’re a homeowner who takes cooking seriously, then you may wish to show off your tools of the trade. If so, then know that the pot rail is most definitely “in” these days.
6. Stainless Steel
More and more homeowners are looking for the professional look when it comes to their kitchen. This means the use of stainless steel not just for kitchen appliances, but also for countertops!
7. The Open Concept
Open concepts are pretty much the law of the land when it comes to homes these days. This is true of kitchens too, wherein many homeowners are opting to open things up by not including wall cabinets in their designs.
