Our Favorite Kitchen Design Trends

Posted September 22, 2020

Some trends come and go while others stick around. If you’re thinking about refreshing your kitchen in time for the holidays, you can use the latest trends for inspiration. While you don’t have to follow them to a tee, the latest innovations can give you insight on how to redesign your kitchen for maximum function and esthetics.

Below are some of our favorite kitchen design trends to consider for your kitchen remodeling project.

Clutter-Free Kitchens

There is a growing emphasis on organization, particularly now with more people working and teaching their kids from home. This is why the clutter has to go. Today’s kitchens feature plenty of unique storage ideas like pull-out cabinet drawers, walk-in pantries, trash pull-outs, drawer organizers, open shelving and coffee stations.

Quartz and Granite Countertops

Quartz and granite resemble natural stone and hold up well to daily use. You’ll probably be happy with both options because they are durable, low maintenance and similar in price. That said, engineered quartz countertops are growing in popularity because they don’t need to be sealed and they won’t absorb stains or bacteria.

Farmhouse Look

The farmhouse look is definitely in. This design trend features light, unfinished woods, neutral palettes and a balance of old and new elements. This allows to repurpose some of the things you already have! By following this design trend, you can enjoy a stress-free kitchen that promotes a positive, productive mindset.

Freestanding Islands

Love kitchen islands but don’t have one in your home? A freestanding island will add valuable storage and seating space to the kitchen, plus double up as a work area for remote learning. Better yet, kitchen cabinets do not have to match. An island is a great way to add variety and personality to your space.

Esthetic Qualities

For the finishing touches, focus on incorporating shades of gray and white, gold and copper hardware and engineered wood flooring in wide boards and beachy colors. We can’t argue with these trends because they are timeless and will complement the evolving trends.

Built-in Benches

Need more seating but your space won’t accommodate a long kitchen table? No problem! More homeowners are requesting built-in benches, especially to make use of awkward spaces like breakfast nooks and bay windows. The benches can also double up as storage solutions for dishes, tablecloths and seasonal decor.
