MY TOP TEN KITCHEN TRENDS
Whether you cook or not, there is no reason your kitchen can't look good! Today's kitchens are more than just a place to cook. Today's kitchen has expanded to add family activities as part of the daily kitchen routine. Kitchens are a place to gather, to entertain, to do projects, to eat, and yes to cook. So why not have a kitchen that looks good and functions well? Here are my top ten kitchen trends. Even if a kitchen renovation is not in the budget for the year, one or two trendy updates will bring your kitchen into the 21st century.
Trend One: Kitchens are the new family rooms.
Trend Two: Black and white kitchens are always in style.
Trend Three: Stainless steel is here to stay and it's not just for cabinets.
Trend Four: A walk-in pantry that is hidden behind closed doors.
Trend Five: Technology is important in a kitchen too as we spend so much time there.
Trend Six: Eco-friendly products are good for your health and the environment.
Trend Seven: Retro kitchens - a little bit of retro goes a long way.
Trend Eight: Layered lighting - Include ambient (general), task, and decorative lighting in your space.
Trend Nine: Kitchen Islands - the bigger the better!
Trend Ten: Eat-In kitchens might even replace the formal dining room.
Well, what do you think? Certainly some of these trends are not new and my guess is that they will be around for a while. What are some of your favorite trends?
