Below are some design trends for 2016 to help homeowners find their way to a beautiful yet functional kitchen:
Soft Colors: Introducing a new shade can change the whole appearance of a kitchen, and soft colors are a big hit this season. The light color palettes like pale green, pale blue, pale yellows, gray, and white go well with lighter wood tones and cabinet stains.
Integrated Spaces: Due to the lifestyle of a family today, "integrated" or "open" kitchens are becoming increasingly popular. Especially in smaller homes, open floor plans make sense. An open kitchen can be used for many activities other than cooking, such as socializing, entertaining, reading, and more. In addition to the regular appliances, you can incorporate your dining table, television, chandelier, and even work desk to the kitchen area.
Under-mounted Sinks: Most homeowners like their kitchen to have a clean, sleek look, and under-mounted sinks definitely fit the bill. The advantage they offer is that the sink rim doesn't show above the counter-top, so it does not catch dirt or disrupt the smooth lines of the counter. They are easy to install and clean and offer plenty of room to work. The most popular materials for under-mounted sinks are cast iron and stainless steel.
Commercial Quality Appliances: Stainless steel has long been the standard, as it is rugged and offers resistance to corrosion and stains. The latest trend is taking stainless to an entirely new level through high-end appliances. Some of the most popular commercial quality appliances include built-in refrigerators, high-end dishwashers, convection microwave ovens, warming drawers and more.
