Because we know how costly it is to renovate or update a kitchen, we’ve created a list of on-going and popular trends that promises to stay for many years. Get informed about the current kitchen design and inspirations for your upcoming kitchen project.
Kitchen designed for function and flow.
Proper placement of the basic elements such as the sink, gas range and the refrigerator sts the pattern of mobility, function and flow for the entire kitchen. Back in the days, a traditional kitchen followed a work triangle plan. But in this modern era, you have a choice to experiment the placement of these important elements – given a large area with lots of room to move around and avoid traffic.
An open-concept kitchen.
Socializing is innate in people. We love chatting with our families, relatives, friends and colleagues especially over great food. We even love it when someone invites us over to their place or we throw a party in the comfort of our home.
An open concept kitchen floor plan that function as a shared space for kitchen, the dining area and even the living room is a growing trend. It allows people to see and mingle with one another which is ideal for entertaining guests during huge gatherings!
Embracing large windows and eco-friendly materials.
Buildings, offices, hotels and homes are now working hand-in-hand to revolutionize for a greener world. When windows are placed properly, it allows natural light to enter. Thus, saving a significant amount of energy. Choosing eco-friendly appliances and materials for your cabinetry, island and countertops not only supports a green environment but also is a way to avoid toxic chemicals that are present in most commercially-manufactured furniture.
“Less is more” and open shelving.
Having that in mind, a small kitchen space requires room functionality rather than aesthetics. Nevertheless, your best bet is to go for the ‘less is more’ rule to get the most out of your limited space. Kitchen that have smaller areas tend to embrace the open shelving concept. Keep it organized and neat to accentuate the beauty of it.
Classic cabinetry is here to stay.
Multi-level cabinets are seen as an ongoing kitchen trend. You’ll never get bored with classic-styled cabinetry. Go for simpler cabinet door style, reduce the detailing of crown molding and put more style on the cabinet’s hardware. The use of neutral palettes such as greys, white and other soft hues (yellow, lavender, apple green) for your walls and cabinets is still an ongoing trend and is likely to continue over the years.
