What 2016 Has in Store for Kitchen Renovations

If you want to make some improvements in the kitchen, consider this certified installer's predictions for the hottest trends this year:

Less Is More

The modern design aesthetic of less is more seems to be the theme of kitchens in 2016. Simple, clean lines are setting the stage for modern-looking kitchens. People are eliminating ornate detailing in order to make cabinets timeless.

Color Is Key

Following the clean line trend, white and neutral colors are popular in kitchen designs this year. If a white kitchen sounds too hard to maintain, black and dark grey are also popular. Another idea is to combine a wood color with black or white countertops and floors. This is a good option for those who find all white or black overpowering. Shaker style cabinetry complements this clean and modern style sense.

Function Takes Priority

As visual kitchen trends are being streamlined, more emphasis is placed on the functionality of the kitchen. Just ask any certified installer what the biggest request is for 2016 and he will tell you that it’s making every inch have a purpose.

Gone is the mock drawer under the sink. These have been replaced with a pull down drawer to hold sponges and cleaning brushes. Lazy Susans are being modernized and making deep corner cabinets more functional. Toe-kick drawers are being designed for under bottom cabinets. Extra drawers can be added above upper cabinets for storing items you use infrequently.
