Are you thinking about remodeling your kitchen? Want some inspiration but don’t know where to start? From finishes and fixtures to staples like cabinetry and countertops, there are so many different trends out there it can be difficult to decide on just one. Kitchens have changed a lot over the decades, and planning for your kitchen remodel an important first step. Here are some of the latest kitchen design trends that you can try in your next remodel.

Smart Kitchens

Technology is working itself into all areas of our homes. Recently, smart appliances in kitchens have been increasing in popularity. Some smart features that you can put in your kitchen will help keep it clean, organized, and an excellent space for entertaining. Some innovative kitchen design upgrades are motion-sensing kitchen faucets that can detect your hands underneath and will turn on automatically or try a one-touch feature. Refrigerators can alert you when your groceries items are running low, or a coffee maker programmed to have your coffee ready when you wake up. 

Colored Cabinets

It is common for older kitchens to have bland, flat paint on the cabinets that don’t really add any life to the kitchen. The new trend is to see islands in various paint colors or wood stain colors to break up the all-white kitchen. The mixing of finishes creates a needed accent piece and additional pops-of-color for the brave of heart. The most popular colors for this trend will be various shades of green and blue. Also, don’t be surprised if you darker jewel tones such as black, navy, emerald green, and even plum. Dark kitchen cabinets can actually work very well in enhancing the kitchen space.

New Storage Techniques

Since being in quarantine, many people have become interested in creating new storage solutions for their homes. One of the best ways to have a functional kitchen is to have practical storage. To avoid storage challenges, homeowners are starting to look for better storage solutions within the cabinetry. These can include appliances garages for small appliances, drawer dividers for cutlery & utensils, pull-outs for spices, tray dividers, roll-out trays. These will make it easier to store foods, drinks, and small appliances.

Beautiful Backsplashes

Backsplashes are a great way to add a splash of creativity to your kitchen design. They can be designed in many different ways to match the aesthetics of your home. Lately, homeowners have been moving away from subway tiles for their backsplashes and instead have begun using larger slabs of marble, quartz, wood, copper, stainless steel, or glass.
