Top Kitchen Design Trends of 2016

Are you thinking about doing a kitchen remodel or kitchen update? Well,  before any money is spent, we believe that it’s very important to be informed of current design trends. Every year trends come and go, but our favorite tends to be the ones that can stand the test of time.

  1. Neutral Color Palette

You can’t go wrong with sticking with a neutral color palette. This isn’t technically a “trend” but has in the past years picked up steam and played a huge role in the kitchen design industry. Whether it’s an all white kitchen or the use of other neutral elements such as grey, this palette is extremely popular as it is classy and timeless. Plus, having a neutral base allows you to style and accessorize interchangeably as the years go by.

2. Open Shelving

Open shelving can be a beautiful break from a long line of upper cabinets. Whether you’re neat and tidy and enjoy displaying everyday dishes, or would rather use open shelving as a way to decorate, this is a good option for all types of clients. This is one of our projects with a beautiful example of open shelving:

3. Quartz Countertops

Quartz has become increasingly popular as a choice for countertops. This material is almost zero maintenance which attracts many customers. Today, there are so many options, even ones that resemble natural stone such as granite and marble.

Choosing a Kitchen Countertop

We find with our Clients that kitchen countertops are a frequent driver for initiating a kitchen remodeling project. Clients can dabble on their own with freshening their spaces up using paint or hardware, but when it comes to countertops, they know they would prefer to have professionals involved. While the number of materials can be endless, from stainless steel to marble and everything in between, we have found that for durability and aesthetics, granite and Caesarstone are still our favorite go-to products. If you like a natural look, granite is a great choice. There are hundreds of shades and patterns of stone that can blend beautifully with almost any kitchen design.

If you are looking to add a splash of color to your kitchen countertops, Caesarstone is an amazing choice, with lots of colors and patterns to choose from and unmatched durability. They claim that their products are scratch-, stain- and crack-resistant and we have seen first-hand how nicely they perform in our Clients’ kitchens. And, with about 45 color options and nine texture collections, there is versatility in aesthetic choice as well!

Seamless Kitchen Seating

With more and more people trending away from formal dining rooms, we are designing increasingly more with casual eating in the kitchen in mind. Whether bar top seating is right for your lifestyle or standard-height table top extensions are more appealing, dining in your kitchen can be a great way to gather. These three kitchens below show a range of kitchens we designed with seamless seating.
