Let’s talk about which kitchens are the most fashionable today. What trends exist in this area, what exactly do owners most often order when they want to make their kitchen the most attractive and functional? Here are some examples of current kitchen trends.
Our site has already written that combining a kitchen with a living room is one of the ten current trends in the field of suburban construction. Yes, the architects say, in most cases, owners choose projects with a combined space. However, this applies to a greater extent to the layout of the whole house. We want to highlight more specific attributes of fashionable cuisine..
The first trend is an inconspicuous kitchen
Despite the fact that the kitchen is often combined with the living room, the owners try to make it less visible. Often, cabinets blend in color with the walls, the sink is covered with a part of the countertop, the microwave is hidden behind the doors. Such a kitchen is not striking, the living room remains the main part of the room..
The second trend is in-line kitchen
If earlier the owners agreed to both L- and U-shaped kitchens, now they are increasingly trying to place everything on one line. The only exceptions are the tiniest kitchens in the apartments of the old fund, where on one side just everything will not fit.
The third trend is the island
Yes, kitchen islands are still in vogue. In the kitchen-living room, they zone the space, become additional work surfaces, bar counters, dining tables, storage areas.
The fourth trend is column cabinets up to the ceiling
We have already written about this trend, examining the pros and cons of cabinets that stretch from floor to ceiling. The trend is relevant, allowing you to change the impression of the kitchen, dissolve it on the wall and use the space to the maximum.
The fifth trend – doors without handles
Designers note that the days when the handle was considered a decoration of the kitchen cabinet are long gone. Owners now prefer push-open doors. Yes, such accessories will cost more, but the kitchen is becoming more concise and modern..
The sixth trend – the refrigerator in sight
Many homeowners today have begun to move away from built-in refrigerators. They are less roomy than ordinary ones, and at the same time take up the same amount of space. Besides, why hide a beautiful refrigerator, for example, with a control display or ice dispensing function?
Seventh trend – mat against gloss
As we already wrote, glossy and matte kitchen furniture fronts are about equally popular. But, as the designers note, more and more customers prefer matte surfaces as more neutral and easy to clean..
Eighth trend – additional freezer
Savvy families, especially with children, today often try to find a place in their kitchens for an additional, separate, albeit small, freezer. They often store frozen fruits, herbs and vegetables from their own site, so as not to preserve everything in jars..
The ninth trend – rejection of carved elements and panels
Kitchen sets are clearly going towards minimalism. There are no pens or other decorations on them. Even classic wooden kitchens are becoming more austere without additional decor.
The tenth trend – white and complex colors
More and more homeowners are deciding that actually a white kitchen is practical and attractive. If not white, then more often they began to choose such complex shades as ocher, burgundy, olive, vanilla. You won’t be surprised today by a kitchen with dark blue or even black cabinets. In addition, two colors are often combined. The brilliant metal of the refrigerator, hob and other household appliances is added to the overall picture.
