In recent years, homeowners have become more confident with playing with color and as a result they are incorporating it more frequently throughout their projects. This confidence has led to the trend of having your cabinets be a pop of color in your kitchen that stands out against your countertops and flooring choices. Kitchen colors can range to anything from cooler coastal styles of bright royal blue cabinets with white countertops, to a more earthy style of dark green cabinets with black countertops. Customization options are truly endless throughout kitchens.
Fun and Unique Backsplashes
If you love creative patterns and fun designs, this new kitchen trend is perfect for your home. Similarly to people becoming more confident with different color designs compared to the typical neutral colors and traditional red wood cabinetry, backsplash styles are shifting as well. Choosing your backsplash is a great way to let your favorite styles shine through. Most popularly, many people pick “mermaid scale” tiles, as the name suggests, it looks like scales off a mermaid. Another popular choice is standard subway tiles, but they pick a unique color compared to the typical white. The customization doesn’t end there, you could also have tiles shaped like geometric shapes that create an overall picture.
It’s true that a lot of kitchen trends lately involve experimenting with bright colors and fun unique patterns, but people have also grown to want more unique appliances or gadgets installed throughout their kitchens. Wine fridges or mini fridges have been a popular choice for people who love to entertain friends and family, as well as having a separate kitchen area designated to being a coffee bar. Most times, these gadget choices depend heavily on your general lifestyle since some products are more suitable for some than others.
