Are you a home trend hunter or a stylish look lover? In both cases, you will certainly admire the kitchen trends of 2016, as they are timeless, stylish, functional, and inviting. Most of such designs tend to make use of the existing space, incorporate a seating area, utilize high-tech appliances, and utilize multiple natural and artificial materials.
The thin and neutral colored countertops that have high resistance to moisture, heat, and shocks is on the top of the hottest 2016 kitchen options. You can install large and small drawers with sleek facades and stainless steel handles instead of the base cabinet to provide the place multiple types of storage spaces.
Sharon Olsen of Designer’s Edge Kitchen and Bath uses glossy natural stone countertops in addition to manmade white or black options such as Corian and quartz in her trendy kitchen designs.
The kitchen with an integrated seating area is still a trendy option, yet you can design an open kitchen to the living area if your home has a small space. Sharon Olsen and her team consider this inviting and intimate look making sure the place will look fresh and airy or dramatic as per the preferences of the homeowner. For example, the team members design a trendy dramatic look in a country kitchen using wooden countertops with stained wood cabinets and Padouk floor in addition to warm lighting fixtures and detailed accessories.
As the modern designs demonstrate the functionality over look, the trendy kitchen designs for 2016 utilize a consistent island height instead of the multi-level island top, as it reduces the functional workspace. However, you should use aesthetic materials when they don’t affect the functionality of the place such as the durable glass cabinet doors and tabletops and the metal or bold colored pendant lamps.
