Posted by Jenna Frederick on January 04, 2016 0 Comments

As you anticipate the new year and plan for your new build or re-model, be sure to check out these nine Kitchen Trends to look out for in 2016! They are the hottest designs to seek out this new year! 

1. Soft, Muted Color Palettes: Though white motifs will still dominate, everything from cabinets to backsplashes will be done in less standard tones. 

2. Smart Spaces: Get ready for a hi-tech makeover! "Look for areas with hidden charging stations to store devices like phones and tablets so they are always operable, at hand, and charged!" 

3. An '80's Reboot: Mirrored backsplashes, brass accessories, and high-gloss surfaces aren't dead by a long shot, but they are more elegant and refined this time around!

4. Metal Range Hoods: In 2016, metal will assume a more dominant role in the kitchen aesthetics and trump wood as the range hood of choice. 

5. Integrated Kitchen-Living Spaces: Whether your kitchen feels disconnected from the rest of your home, or your cooking space needs to feel more accommodating; this trend could be for you! 

6. A New Kind of Tradition: "Traditional designs will always remain popular, but future renditions will be more deliberate with an emphasis on key elements like hoods, islands, cabinet crowns, and so on." -Designer; Lockhart

7. Texture-on-Texture Contrast: Designers are looking to re-position the same texture in different patterns throughout the kitchen. 

8. A "Nod" to Midcentury Mod: It is easy to get into the minimalist movement by choosing predominantly white color palettes, designing with light wood textures and clearing away unnecessary clutter. 

9. Well-lit Cabinetry: Homeowners won't settle for just ceiling lights and table lamps to illuminate their kitchens. Designers say extensive cabinet lighting is a trend to watch!
