Trends in Kitchen Design

Remember when the kitchen was tucked away in the back corner of your house and it was closed in by walls on all sides? Times have changed. Kitchens are now the focal point of your home and should feel inviting and showcase your home. Ever notice that when you have friends over that everyone gathers in the kitchen? Advances in technology and changing social developments have helped change the look and feel of today's kitchens. Clean and simple design and natural lighting have become the norm. Functional storage is critical for today's growing and busy families.

We’ve gathered a list of top kitchen trends for homes across the nation, offering some advice and ideas as you tackle your upcoming kitchen renovation.

Open Concept Kitchens

If you’re a fan of home improvement channels, then you’ve probably heard designers rave about open concept kitchens. This design plan connects the living room, dining room, and kitchen to create one, massive space in the center of a home. Perfect for homeowners that entertain a lot or for casual evenings, this design is efficient, inviting, and reinforces the fact that the kitchen is the heart of the home.

Two-Toned Kitchens

Color trends are constantly changing, but two-toned kitchens are slowly becoming a staple for homes everywhere. This trend can be defined as color contrasts of any and all variations:

  • Black cabinets and white countertops
  • White cabinets and wood-grain counters
  • Bright colors and neutral contrasts

One place where we see a lot of contrast is the kitchen island. To break up the look of all kitchen cabinets in one color including the kitchen island, homeowners are using different colors and finishes for their kitchen island and countertop. Say all of your kitchen cabinets are white including your kitchen island. One way you can change the look of your kitchen island is to replace your Cabinet Doors, Drawer Fronts and side panels with new veneers to a new paint color or wood stain finish. Ordering replacement cabinet doors, drawer fronts and veneers is a simple and inexpensive way to upgrade and change the look and style of your kitchen.  

Minimalistic Styles

Contemporary and modern designs have taken over kitchens trends in the past century. These designs feature streamlined styling with clean edges and smooth surfaces. Slab and shaker cabinet doors are very popular modern styles. They are offered in a wide array of unfinished wood species including hard maple and cherry so you can stain your cabinet doors and drawers fronts either light or dark. Paint grade hard maple or medium density fiberboard (MDF) are great options for priming and painting your cabinet components...and a little cheaper than solid wood. Inspired by European culture, these minimalistic kitchens are easy to navigate and center around organization, making cabinetry an extremely important aspect of the design.

Smart Kitchens

Technology is everywhere, including the kitchen. From microwaves and big appliances to self-brewing coffee pots and voice assistants, smart kitchens are becoming more and more popular. Since smart kitchen trends are evolving, it doesn’t hurt to review the latest time-saving gadgets and implement them into your remodel. 

Natural Lighting

Inviting the outdoors into your kitchen’s design is another way to stay on-trend as you remodel your home. Whether it’s installing new windows, sticking with natural tones, or incorporating wood cabinets, bringing elements of nature into the room can elevate the mood of the space—making it feel homey and welcoming to all who enter.
