We have gathered up 10 of the hottest new kitchen design trends for you to explore. Get some ideas, look at some gorgeous kitchens, and find inspiration for your own kitchen renovation!
Upgraded Kitchen Cabinets
Your cabinets are for more than just storage! Changing up the color and finish of your cabinets can bring new life to your kitchen, adding visual interest to the space.
Contrast your cabinets with your floor for interesting color blocking, or use complementary shades for a traditional look.
Fun & Funky Backsplashes
Kitchen backsplashes can add a pop of color and interest to your kitchen and allow you the flexibility of a unique design while also being cost-effective.
Whether you place them between your sink and stove or use them as a visual contrast to your counters or flooring, a kitchen backsplash can be a small renovation that packs a big punch.
Unique, interesting lighting fixtures in your kitchen pull double duty – they let you see and provide you with easy-to-maintain decoration!
There’s such a wide array of styles to choose from – from traditional sconces to orbit pendant lights and more – that you are guaranteed to find something that works with your style and your kitchen’s overall feel.
Open shelving can provide a minimalistic appearance that works really well with some kitchen styles, while also providing you easy access to the tools you use the most. With the huge array of open shelving options, you can choose anything from rustic wooden shelves to hanging copper pieces and more!
If you have a smaller kitchen without a lot of cabinet space, open shelving can be a great way to expand your storage without making your kitchen feel smaller.
Exposed brick is a trend in modern kitchens, allowing you to meld a vintage feel with a contemporary workspace. If you have an exposed brick wall (or are willing to build one in), you’ll see that they can really make a space feel rustic and cozy.
Plus, because brick can come in so many different textures and colors, it works with a huge variety of spaces, and even works well in small kitchen areas!
If you are lucky enough to have a kitchen that faces outside, consider opening up the space with some expansive statement windows.
A wall of windows will bring in a lot of natural light, make your kitchen feel larger, and let you enjoy some great views while you are cooking, entertaining, or just relaxing with a glass of wine.
Bright colors are no longer just for your walls! A bold kitchen floor with complementary wall or cabinet colors can completely change your kitchen’s overall feel, while letting you reflect your own unique style.
Try pairing a fun pattern with a matching cabinet color, or coordinating an accent wall with an equally bright color on your floor. A good kitchen designer can help you decide the best type and style of flooring for you!
Stylish Kitchen Fixtures
Another bold trend this season is unique kitchen fixtures, especially faucets. More and more companies are embracing this trend, offering visually interesting faucets that can really complement a simpler kitchen design.
Or, if you are going for an industrial look, a brass or copper faucet could be the perfect finishing touch!
Creative Kitchen Storage
No matter what size your kitchen is, everyone can benefit from more storage. That’s why a popular trend has been getting creative with your storage options!
From pull-out racks for pots to magnetized knife-holders that mount to your wall, your storage can reduce clutter and be stylish at the same time!
Beautiful Kitchen Islands
If you have the space, a beautiful and functional kitchen island is an increasingly popular addition to the modern kitchen design.
Giving you additional counter space, an extra spot for seating, and more under-counter storage options, kitchen islands are a great addition to any kitchen, whether classic or contemporary.
