Kitchen Design Trends for 2016

Kitchen Design Trends for 2016

The kitchen is the heart of any house, a central hub for almost everything that goes on. From entertaining to family meals and even homework, kitchens can handle it all.

If you’re looking to redesign your kitchen this year, here are the design trends to keep your eye on in 2016. 

Open Floor Plans

With more and more homes leaning towards a modern open concept layout, kitchens are becoming a feature part of the house. In 2016, look for more open concept spaces, with the kitchen opening into the family room or living room. No longer are kitchens isolated. They’re a part of the living and entertaining area. 

Multipurpose Islands

Kitchen islands are not a new trend, but in 2016 they are becoming even more functional. This year, look for kitchen islands that are working overtime – as the prep station, the serving area, the breakfast bar and even the kitchen table.

Smart Kitchens

Get ready for hi-tech kitchens! Kitchens are becoming equipped with designated spots for smart devices. Hidden charging stations and tablet holders are ideal for keeping devices at hand and charged. Smart appliances are also becoming more popular with built-in coffee machines, wine fridges and state-of-the-art appliances.

Soft Colours

A white palette is still the go-to colour scheme, but there is a slight shift in 2016. Soft, muted hues are ideal for wall colours, cabinets and even appliances. Greys and pastels are viable alternatives to white and wood cabinet finishes. Light coloured stone counters, like white marble, continue the soft theme. Overall, kitchens this year will have a softer, more wistful feel.

Keep an eye on these trends while you renovate your kitchen this year and you’ll be able to enjoy the style and functionality for many years to come.
