Latest Trends in Kitchen Designs

Custom Home Trends | October 3, 2019

Getting to know some of the latest trends in kitchen designs can help you make an informed decision about which design elements you want to include in your custom kitchen. At Jaheny Custom Builders, we want to help you create the kitchen of your dreams. That is why all of our custom home building services, including kitchen design, are tailored to suit the needs of each unique client.

Open Shelving

One of the biggest trends in kitchen design at the moment is replacing upper kitchen cabinets with metal, wood, or glass open shelving. This design trend was inspired by hotel and retail spaces and works to add an overall bold statement that many people want to make in their homes.

Wood Elements

Utilizing wood elements throughout a kitchen space can be a great way to create a welcoming and calming environment. Since wood is a timeless and versatile material, it can be the perfect option for creating lighter, airier spaces.

Coloured Cabinets

In most cases, people have started to move away from white kitchen cabinetry in favour of incorporating coloured cabinets into their designs. Coloured cabinets can be the ideal option for making a statement and creating an overall mood for the kitchen space. Consider pairing coloured cabinets with brass or other contrasting metal fixtures and hardware.

Contrasting Textures

Contrasting textures combined with sleek finishes can help provide a visually interesting aesthetic. Consider pairing a mirrored backsplash with highly polished marble countertops or matte kitchen cabinets with textured inlays.

Integrated Appliances

Kitchen designs are moving away from having appliances sticking out in favour of incorporating appliances into the overall design and aesthetics of the kitchen. By integrating appliances into a custom kitchen design, you can create a seamless look that will be the envy of all your guests.

Pendant Light Fixtures

Using pendant light fixtures can be an important part of breaking up open-plan kitchen spaces. Pendant light fixtures can be used to anchor the dining area, while also working as statement pieces.

Matte Black

Matte black will continue to be a predominant trend in kitchen hardware, fixtures, and millwork. By using matte black finishes, you can add a crisp accent colour for light-coloured kitchens, while also adding a little drama without overly darkening the kitchen space.
