With a new year comes new design trends for the home. This year, homeowners are opting to renovate their kitchens with a more modern design than in years past. They are moving away from the traditional styles and designing unique spaces that fit their everyday lifestyles. For today’s hottest kitchens, consider these five trends to help you achieve a contemporary and functional design.
Glass Kitchen Cabinets
Move away from cabinet doors that hide what is in your cabinetry, and install frosted or stained glass doors. The design trend is perfect for above-the-counter cabinetry. It’s a beautiful look that opens up your kitchen and will display the items in your cabinets.
Neutrals continue to be popular, but consider adding a burst of color with either your dishes, a rug, or napkins. The pop of color delivers the perfect fresh and crisp look to a modern kitchen. If you’re brave enough, you can incorporate bold colors into your cabinetry and countertop.
Contemporary Kitchen Decor
Today’s modern kitchen design is all about simplicity and bright cheerful prints. You can even bring a new look to your kitchen with vivid wall paint or pair contemporary tiles for a backsplash. Adding a few open shelves either for display or for everyday use is appealing and modern. Small changes like cabinet handles that are more modern, or even hidden, are popular now.
Save money and energy by installing a wide range of today’s top kitchen technologies in your home. It’s hard to not purchase an energy saving freezer-bottom refrigerator, water saving faucets and eco-friendly dishwashers.
Modern Kitchen Furniture
Blend the look of your kitchen and living room to create one open floor plan. This growing trend helps to elevate comfort in the kitchen. Today, the kitchen is no longer just a place to cook, but also to entertain, work and unwind. For smaller kitchens, consider adding a small sofa in a nook for watching TV, reading or homework.
