Trends in Kitchen Design
A lot happens in your kitchen. It’s often the center of any home, and a place that needs to be as functional as it is stylish. At Keystone Supply Outlet serving Emmaus PA and all of Lehigh Valley, we carry a wide variety of countertops and cabinets for your new or remodeled kitchen. Here are just a few trends in kitchen design to get you thinking about what to include in your new kitchen.
The new modern-traditional style A growing trend in home design is the pairing of modern and traditional design elements. Adding brushed-nickel fittings to a sleek modern cabinet design, for example, gives a unique look that is both classy and warm.
Let it shine New trends in metallics include the use of warmer metals such as gold, copper and bronze. These can be used in moderation — such as a single gold faucet — to create a stunning look.
From white to black White cabinets are still popular, but the other end of the color spectrum is making its way into kitchens. Black cabinets or countertops make a strong statement, and also give off an elegant feel.
Shaker style is back While classic Shaker-inspired kitchens have never gone completely out of style, they seem to be making a strong comeback. Shaker style kitchens focus on clean lines, excellent craftsmanship, and simple functionality.
Furniture-like design elements. On many kitchen wish lists is stylish cabinetry that is reminiscent of high-end furniture. Examples include islands propped up by specialty designed legs and contrasting panels on top and bottom cabinets.
Open pantry shelving Instead of boxing in your pantry shelves, consider leaving the shelves open to create both easy access and a personal touch. This can be done with cabinets as well, especially to show off your unique dishes or stemware.
Wallpaper and paint While your cabinets may take up most of your wall space in the kitchen, take special care to cover the walls you do have with high-end wallpaper or bold-colored paint. Consider using striking patterns in small spaces for a unique focal point.
