Want to design and remodel your kitchen in a clean, modern style? Simple clean lines and sleek cabinet doors are the way to go. Kitchen cabinets can visually occupy up to 75% of the room. Get the cabinets right, and you can consider your modern kitchen design a slam-dunk.
Here are some Top Modern Kitchen Design Trends:
White Cabinetry and dark(er) natural woods like walnut and mahogany. Gone are hyper detailed and fussy looking cabinets, replaced by full overlay slab panel door and drawer fronts.
2. Counter Tops
Light colored Quartz and marble counter tops. We are using less granite these days.
3. Stainless Steel Appliances
Name brands are still the name of the game, Sub-Zero, Viking, Dacor, Miele, and GE Monogram. If you ever needed proof of these brand popularity, look at the real estate section of the newspaper and see how many homes list these brands by name as selling points. They are high quality, function extremely well and add long term value.
4. Social Kitchen
Very large islands and the demise (or at least the very reduced capacity) of the table in the kitchen. Our kitchen designs are incorporating large island(s) that can accommodate cooking, prep work and dining. The area previously reserved for the breakfast table has been replaced with a sitting area in the kitchen. The large over-scaled island provides an area for your kids to spread out their homework and projects and still give mom and dad a place to prepare the meal in a social and spacious manner.
5. Horizontally Oriented Grain
Sometimes all it take is a slight adjustment to a well known material to introduce a fresh new look. Part of the reason this trend is starting to become more popular is the introduction of the open floor plan back into the modern kitchen. The grain extends the space visually and integrates what was previously just a utilitarian space with it’s own personality into the same finish palette as the main living areas.
6. Under Mounted Sinks
A must have in any new kitchen. Laminate counter tops are inexpensive but don't allow you to under mount your sinks. I always recommend spending more of you kitchen renovation budget on stone counters with under mounted sinks.
