Popular Kitchen Cabinet & Interior Design Trends
Best Kitchen Paint Colors: While white paint continues to be a popular and timeless expression for kitchen walls that never goes out of style, grey is fast becoming the new neutral. Gray spans a wide spectrum from off-white to cool crisp tones of gray and rich plush charcoals. Other interpretations include warm and natural gray with a tinge of purple and green which blends perfectly with rich chocolate and ebony hardwood flooring and cabinetry.
Kitchen Cabinets Design: According to the experts at Future Vision Remodeling, there are no rules when it comes to choosing which design protocols to follow. Traditionally speaking, it was considered the norm for decades to have upper and lower cabinetry that matched in both design and finish. Over the past few years however, homeowners began to strive for a more varied appearance, mixing complementary styles of upper and lower cabinets. This new approach is dubbed “tuxedo cabinetry” and offers a two-tone approach to your space that is both visually appealing and functional.
Kitchen Countertop, Wall & Floor Tiles: Tile is not only versatile; it is also a cost effective way to bring a new element of design to update your existing space. The popularity of subway tile has ebbed and waned, and this year brings the use of colorful patterned tile in vibrant colors and a multitude of shapes. Tile works perfectly to accentuate backsplashes, counter tops and even flooring. When used sparingly brightly patterned tile can be added to highlight, add dimension, and a touch of pizzazz to your favorite space.
Stainless Steel, Zinc & Other Metals Counter Tops & Appliances: The trend of matching appliances, cabinet hardware, lighting, and plumbing fixtures is a thing of the past, with homeowners instead electing to mix metals for an intentionally casual, inviting, anything goes approach to their kitchen space.
Open Shelving Kitchen: For those homeowners interested in simplicity and nothing but the essentials, open shelving is a perfect design option especially for smaller families who have no need for a ton of extra storage. Open shelving is the perfect balance between functionality and visual appeal especially when used to display coffee mugs, dishes, mixing bowls, and other items that are used on a regular basis. The open design can add illusion of space to a small kitchen, especially when the shelving is painting in neutrals with bright accents to give the entire area a pop of color.
