Summer’s hottest home trends easily lend themselves to the kitchen. Now that the official first day of summer has arrived, these spectacular kitchen design ideas will get your home ready for entertaining all season long.
Trend #1: Pineapples
Summer 2016 was all about pink flamingos, but this year’s popular motif is the pineapple. This sweet fruit has long been the universal symbol of hospitality, and adding a pineapple or two to your kitchen décor will help welcome guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy!
Trend #2: Bold, Bright Patterns
Embrace your creative side by swapping out your usual dishes and table linens for bold, patterns, and vivid hues or pastels. Tropical or whimsical prints are right on trend this summer, as well as stripes, global geometrics, pretty paisleys, and fabulous floral patterns. Opt for a colorful tablecloth, and unbreakable dishes that can move outdoors when dining al fresco.
Trend #3: Natural Materials
Summer is all about easy, breezy fun in the sun. Bring a touch of nature indoors with natural fiber woven table runners, light linen curtains, jute rugs, sea grass baskets, sea glass, driftwood, seashells, bamboo, rattan, potted succulents, and other natural elements that make your home feel like a beach vacation.
Trend #4: Lanterns
Lanterns add summer ambiance to the home, both inside and out. These casual sources of light give off a soft glow on a warm summer evening, and look just as nice when placed atop a kitchen island or open shelving in the kitchen. Look for lanterns that mix weathered wood, glass, and metal for the quintessential summertime look.
Trend #5: Glass Elements
While industrial elements were in this past winter, glass is the perfect addition for summer. Glass front cabinet doors add a touch of airiness to a kitchen that is unmatched. You can also consider adding textured glass pendant lights, clear glass bowls, colored glass canisters, or vintage glass vases filled with freshly cut flowers.
