Trendy Tips to Make Your Kitchen Hip
1. Ditch the all-white kitchen and embrace pops of color.
All-white kitchens have been trendy for years, but now it’s time to bring back a splash of color. You can do this by painting the cabinets, changing out your drawer knobs, and adding pops of color in unexpected places—perhaps your appliances—which now come in a variety of fun and creative shades.
2. Open floor plans and an extended kitchen space.
The concept of expanding and opening up the rooms between the kitchen and living spaces is certainly not new, and they are expected to continue throughout the foreseeable future. This time, though, areas that have been traditionally hidden (think cabinet shelves and pantries) are beginning to see the light of day and are on display. Not only does this improve the flow of the kitchen, but it also makes keeping your space tidy more of a priority.
3. Woody warmth.
You may remember the trend of dark wood from years past, but this time it’s different. It’s all about embracing the natural look of wood and combining traditional design with something a little fresher. Whether you choose to upgrade your cabinets, or kitchen island, or add natural elements to your kitchen, this trend is definitely on the rise!
4. Embrace smart appliances.
Smart home appliances have gained popularity in recent years. In our fast-paced, digital world, there are options that can make your life easier and your kitchen more sophisticated. For example, technology can simplify your life by reading a recipe out loud to you while you cook. That beats constantly needing to check your phone for measurements and directions, right? Think Alexa, Google Home, smart refrigerators, smart cookers, and even microwaves. Learn more about highly-rated options here!
5. Butcher block islands.
Practical and timeless, kitchen islands create a cohesive space that offers more room for cooking and storage. Butcher block islands offer a sensible solution to never having enough counter space. Additionally, they can even be fashioned in a way where shelves or cabinets can be added, giving you room to display your favorite knick-knacks and dishes. It also lends more space for the family to cook and eat together.
6. Slab backsplashes.
Move over, subway tiles. Slab backsplashes are on-trend. They offer a clean, classy look to any kitchen remodeling project and come in a variety of materials, from top-dollar marble to budget-friendly quartz. Another benefit of slab backsplashes is that they can give a sleek, uniform appearance that not only looks put together but is easy to clean, which means less work for you.
