Kitchens have come a long way, particularly in the last 10 to 20 years. One could argue the rise of the TV chef and the beautiful kitchen they inhabit has played a significant role in this. People want Marvin replacement windows similar to those that they see on the amazing looking homes on TV. Without question, this rise has forced us to re-evaluate how we feel about aesthetics in the home. Recently, homeowners and prospective buyers are looking for luxurious kitchens with ample room, a nice design, and modern amenities. One would assume that this entails purchasing sterling silver cutlery sets for the dining table. A newly designed kitchen will not only provide many benefits to you, but it will also increase the value of your home. If you’re looking to update your kitchen with extra features and a new, sleek design, then check out these popular design trends for kitchens.
The color of cabinets is always changing and evolving, but one new trend is inspiring designers and manufacturers to rethink how cabinets and cupboards function. Simplicity is a growing trend in every aspect of our lives, which also inspires minimalist design everywhere we go. Kitchens cannot only reflect your taste and personality with their design, but they can become more functional and easy-to-use than ever before. Personal preference is a big part of a person’s kitchen design. There are common trends but each kitchen has their own unique difference. For example, take these kitchen faucets, all are highly reviewed and will work brilliantly, it’s just personal preference as to which one a person would pick. Refrigerators are also modernizing with water dispensers and filtration built in.
This trend may conflict with the functionality of many modern cupboards, but it is another popular option in many kitchens today. A large, open kitchen has been idealized for some years now, but that concept of open space is finding its way into other areas of the kitchen, such as shelving and cupboards. Open shelving provides a warm, lived-in feel, while also allowing the homeowner to add their unique style in choosing what to display.
When choosing an open-spaced kitchen, you are opting for a kitchen that is constantly on display, particularly if the dining area is adjoined or nearby, so be sure you’re ready to maintain its sightly appearance.
Modern, Yet Traditional Design
We’ve made mention of modern design for the kitchen. But what is this modern approach? For years, many opted for a sleek modern look that focused on a minimalist design. While the modern look is still popular, many are incorporating the modern look with a traditional feel. So your kitchen can still be sleek, yet also warm and welcoming.
If you want to add a contemporary feel to your kitchen without sacrificing traditional design, then why not have both? The good news is that many designers are now updating kitchens with a blend of modern and traditional styles.
As the functional design of cupboards and cabinets continue to evolve, a blend of modern and traditional styles shows up in more and more kitchens. As you can see, modern characteristics are still popular in kitchen design trends, and the possibilities abound.
