Glass-Front Cabinetry & Open Shelving
For homeowners that cook in their kitchen daily, glass-front doors and open shelving are becoming an increasingly popular choice. Cooking utensils and dishes are easily accessible with the open shelves and visibility of glass doors. This trend also allows for an interesting change of pace in the cabinetry design.
Interior design has been taking a closer walk with nature in the past decade. More than ever we are seeing natural elements being brought indoors through textiles, colors, and furniture design. The kitchen is no exception with one of the biggest trends being large removable windows. Large windows provide natural lighting to help illuminate the kitchen workspace, as well as brighten our mood. Homeowners are able to cook while enjoying the beauty of the outdoors.
Industrial touches are being paired with soft colors to create balance between luxury and practicality. From industrial cooktops and faucets to lighting fixtures, this easy trend will give timeless longevity to any kitchen.
Alternative Countertop Material
Traditionally, granite and marble have been the top choice in countertops, but more unique options have become popular in the last few years. For the modern client, quartz and concrete provide a clean look, while wood is more popular for the nature-inspired design.
As kitchens become the heartbeat of the home, designers are showcasing the space as works of art. While visual impact can be created with colored cabinets or unique vent hoods, many designers are looking to the backsplash. By using simple lines in the cabinetry, the backsplash can be an opportunity to show the homeowners personality. Glass subway tile, marble slabs, vintage Spanish tile, and rough cut natural stone are among the popular trends going into 2014.
