2. Make way for marble — a must in modern kitchen design.
Marble is almost synonymous with a high-end kitchen. Undeniably luxurious and relatively affordable, we are seeing an upward trend when it comes to using marble in modern kitchen design. Its veined patterns and creamy white and gray tones add interest without being overwhelming. Marble is incredibly versatile and can be used for flooring and backsplashes, but when it comes to countertops, opt for Quartzite. This durable, natural material looks like marble without the risk of etching and is heat, scratch, and stain resistant Whether used throughout the kitchen or simply as an accent, be sure to include at least a splash of marble in your new kitchen.
While a timeless and beautiful choice, the days when all kitchens had to be bright and white have passed. Many homeowners are showing a preference for richer, darker colors in regards to wall paint and kitchen cabinet finishes. Today, you’ll see more dark options available in cabinetry, from dark blue to gray to espresso. These deep hues can also be added to walls to create a contrast against lighter cabinets, or look to the 2021 top color picks for inspiration.
4. Pave the way for over the top organization and a pantry fit for the stars.
The pantry craze is here to stay, and you’ll want to prioritize this addition when mapping out your new kitchen. What was once just a nice-to-have has become essential in recent years, thanks to our newfound obsession with organization. There are currently over 100k #pantryorganization posts on Instagram alone! But pantries don’t just look nice when properly arranged. They also allow you to keep all of your food goods in one designated spot, freeing up plenty of extra space in your custom cabinets.
5. Give your kitchen some glitz and glamour with gold finishes.
When it comes to kitchen sinks and cabinet hardware, there is a definite shift toward warmth. For a long time, silver seemed to be the go-to when building a new kitchen, but now, there is much more diversity in this category. To achieve this desired look, opt for golden tones like bronze and copper when shopping for light fixtures, kitchen sinks, pulls, and knobs. These materials are on point and also nicely complement darker shades, or consider the trendy two tone look of mixing metals.
