The trend nowadays is all about mixing functionality and beauty in the kitchen. Kitchens have become the most important investments in many homes, and therefore, they need to be well-planned for and well-designed. Following are some of the latest trends that are set to dominate in 2017 and beyond.
Soft colors are making a big appearance in most designer kitchens nowadays. However, you should incorporate a dash of jewel-tone colors into the decor. You can easily achieve that by going for colored countertops or using colored kitchen utensils which will create a nice and dramatic feel. Also, don’t underestimate the power of artwork in creating a stylish look and adding a touch of uniqueness to your kitchen.
Commercial high-tech appliances are finding their way into today’s home kitchens. The trend nowadays is going for appliances like warming drawers, European high-end dish washers, Under-mounted sinks, wall faucets, convection microwave ovens, and glass-top stoves. There are also the new glass fronted fridges which look extremely classy and elegant.
Another hot trend is to use smaller appliances. Look for appliances that can help you make maximum usage of every inch of space in your kitchen. You can find multi-functional cooking appliances that offer you many cooking facilities in one small appliance. Believe it or not, an extra space is exactly what you need in your kitchen. That’s why open kitchens are becoming more and more popular every day.
Also, try adding as many storage spaces as you can. Nowadays, kitchen furniture include walk-in pantries, corner spins, roll-out shelves, and built-in knife slots. If you need more storage spaces, you can always add extra wall-mounted racks and wicker baskets. The more storage spaces you have, the more tidy and neat your kitchen will always look. After deciding on what suits you most in your kitchen, you can seek help from a professional designer. He can help you design your kitchen in the most efficient and beautiful way possible.
