Home trends are first seen in the kitchen. Orange appliances from the ’70s, brass fixtures from the ’90s, and classic wood floors are all different options that each homeowner chooses to meet their style.
Writing a blog about kitchen trends feels like a bag of potpourri because there are endless options to choose from. Bottom line, go with what meets your style. If you plan on selling your home soon, you are better suited to stick with something more classic and less eclectic, but it’s your home you’re living in; let it reflect your style and enjoy every minute of it!
As technology advances, we see “smart” appliances complete with Wi-Fi capabilities that can remind you when you’re low on milk and eggs. Perhaps that’s why some kitchens look like traditional farmhouses, to embrace nostalgia and simpler times.
We pulled together options of new ideas that you might want to consider when thinking of what to change in your kitchen. Take a few cues from us and reach out to Innovative Kitchen and Bath to remodel your kitchen that is both functional and fun for your family.
Clever solutions with integrated appliances
We’ve talked a lot on our bag about cleaver ways to ban clutter and unique options to design around storage solutions. This trend is popular in kitchens because we see many homes adopting open concepts leaving the kitchen in plain sight. For open kitchens and homeowners who like seamless lines, an excellent idea is to incorporate concealed and clean integration of cabinets and appliances.
Think of a cool hidden door you’ve seen in spy movies; integrated appliances and cabinets are camouflaged in the kitchen just like that. They’re not visibly different than the rest of the cabinets and blend in seamlessly. These magically disappearing refrigerators and look beautifully cohesive and makes a great talking point – instead of being the focal point of your kitchen.
Pewter and matte black hardware
Hardware can easily help you identify a kitchen that is dated or new. Brass was a popular option in the 90s, stainless steel in the ought’s, and now, we see a gentle transition to pewter and matte black. Pewter looks more rustic than shiny stainless steel, and matte black is sleek against white and wood cabinets. It’s a refreshing update against silver or brass options.
Use of wood and raw materials
Technology in our homes and kitchens look different than they did 5, 10, 20 years ago. With so much technology around us, it’s no surprise that natural and raw materials are seeing a resurgence in popularity. Wood and stone materials help connect families with nature even on the inside.
