The biggest trend in kitchens today is white with white. This is often coupled with a granite countertop, or if you are really brave, marble. If you cook a lot and don’t like stains, don’t pick marble as it tends to stain easily. One of the best things about a white kitchen is that you can add splashes of color to spice things up, as seen here from HGTV. Another trend to add color to a white kitchen is an island in a different color, often bold or bright, as seen here from Better Homes & Gardens.
White is not the only color out there this year. Grays, greens, and blues in every shade imaginable are being used by today’s designers. Near whites are in style in every shade. Just barely blue, green, cream, grey, or even yellow. So if you want the brightness of white, and don’t love the starkness of it, this is the way to go.
Another trend in kitchens today is that your cabinets do not have to be all the same color. Darker cabinets on the bottom, and lighter ones on top makes a dramatic look. Or for an even more dramatic look, add a splash of color to your kitchen. Bold back-splashes are also in style, from bold prints to bright colors.
Appliances are still tending to be stainless, but other metal in the kitchen is often changed up now. Copper, brass, gold-tone, and stainless can be exhibited in the same kitchen. A copper pendant light over a sink or island, stainless appliances, gold-tone drawer pulls can all be at home in today’s kitchen. Farmhouse sinks are still an eye-catching touch to the modern kitchen, and come in so many colors and options. You can even get your new farmhouse sink in antique copper.
