1. Smart Kitchen

Its 2020 and technology entered our home in full force and kitchens were no exceptions. Now you can have technology integrated into every appliance in your kitchen from your lights to your refrigerators that can alert you when grocery items are running low. Smart kitchens are an evolving aspect of design. In fact, a lot of kitchens today are built as smart kitchens from the ground up. 

2. Dark Cabinets

Although white kitchen cabinets are a classy elegant look, we are seeing a rising trend in dark-colored kitchen cabinets. Dark kitchen cabinets portray full-on elegance and a luxurious feel that white just cannot.

3. Think of it as a Solution for all your Storage Needs!

The foundation of any kitchen is functional kitchen storage. If it is inadequate or ineffective, you will face endless frustration. To counter storage challenges, appliances garages for small appliances, drawer dividers for cutlery & utensils, pull-outs for spices, tray dividers, roll-out trays, and caddies for pots & pans; as well as wastebasket cabinets for garbage and recyclables and/or deep drawers.

4. Ceramic Tiles or Hardwood Floors?

Even though hardwood floors have been unchallenged, 2019 saw ceramic tiles as the rising trend. We believe that the trend is going to continue considering the latest technologies with which they come in a lot of designs and the fact that it is so much easier to maintain than wood.

5. Kitchen Islands

Kitchen islands are no more a western thing anymore. They have become focal points and the hub of the kitchen. One of the changes emerging is the single level larger sizing, serving multiple uses; especially since we are seeing less wall cabinet space in kitchen design. The kitchen island is meant to create an impact, and its design must make a statement.

6. Outdoor Space or Patio

Homeowners literally everywhere are connecting their kitchens to an outdoor space or patio. Install a sliding glass door and huge windows and you can feel connected to the outdoor space and the freedom it provides is just surreal. 

If you feel like your kitchen has no character, you should always consider a remodel. With certified professionals and designers, HomeTriangle helps you find the right expert for your needs.
