Once an area used strictly by the people who prepared food, the kitchen has become a focal point in peoples homes. With so many shows on TV and pictures in magazines that show the “perfect” kitchen, it is hard to know where to start when thinking about what you want your kitchen to look like. Everything from colors to appliance choice can be daunting to most anyone. We have compiled some of the most popular trends happening in the kitchen to help make your decision making process a little easier.
Neutrals are by far the most popular color in the kitchen and, as of now, white takes the cake. Other colors, however, are starting to show up more frequently, for instance, gray is on an upward trend. Like white, gray provides an elegant and clean look and is easy to pair with other colors. On the other end of the spectrum are the bold colors such as blue which makes a kitchen a true focal point in any house. Similar to a feature wall, pops of color are being added in the kitchen by adding in a colorful sink or another accessory to create exciting contrast.
Cabinets and Countertops
As mentioned, neutral colors are most popular when it comes to the kitchen, and that applies to cabinets and countertops, too. One big change in the kitchen landscape is a shift from wall cabinetry to deep drawers, making those hard to reach items a thing of the past. Granite was once the king of countertops; however, quartz seems to be taking over as the most popular option in the choice for kitchen countertops.
With work, family, and friends all pulling you in a million directions, it is more important than ever to have a kitchen that helps save you time. For this reason, one of the most popular trends in the kitchen is functionality. From sinks that you tap to turn on to appliances that are all connected via Bluetooth, today's kitchens are all about making it easy for you to get things done in a timely manner.
