Top 4 Kitchen Design Trends of 2016
In 2016, simplicity is everything.
This year’s kitchen trends boast bright, fresh and functional design elements that lend themselves to today’s modern high-tech lifestyle. These elements are easy to incorporate into your existing space and are a great way to increase the aesthetic appeal and overall value of your home.
Here are our top 5 kitchen design trends for 2016:
1) White Spaces
When it comes to colour palettes, white has been dominating the design world. Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year is “Simply White” and this minimalist approach can be seen in magazines, on TV shows, and on blogs. By simply incorporating white or light colours within the kitchen, you can make your space look much more airy and open.
Whether you incorporate a funky backsplash or some rustic wood elements throughout your kitchen, textures in a simple and cleanly designed kitchen will add a touch of life while still keeping things neutral.
3) Brightly Lit Cabinetry
One of the easiest ways to transform your kitchen is by revamping your cabinets. This year, simplistic and clean cabinets are dominating the design world and are coming with under-cabinet lighting systems that offer a great way to brighten up your space.
4) Standalone Hood Fans
Gone are the days of decorative range hoods and in are the days of standalone hood fans! While some home designs still feature range hoods, modern design lends itself more to standalone hood fans that boast a simple and clean appearance.
Kitchen design trends in 2016 are modern, clean, and simple yet still create an aesthetically pleasing space. Kitchens are undoubtedly the heart of the home.
