The kitchen has the potential to be one of the most visually appealing rooms in the home. Regardless of what your life looks like, there’s a good chance you’ll spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen or dining area–which is why it should be a stunning sanctuary. If you’re planning your checklist for must-haves in your dream home or thinking about upgrading your current property, you’ll want to explore the luxurious modern trends below.
Tile work used to be reserved for the backsplash, but we’re seeing an increasing number of homes with one or more walls (or even ceilings) tiled in the kitchen. White is the most common choice for tiled walls, often cut into geometric shapes to add texture and depth.
In spacious kitchens in homes with open floor plans, double islands are an intuitive way to provide more surface area and seating options. In kitchens with two islands, it’s not uncommon for them to be made of different materials to create a contrasting aesthetic.
Richly Veined Marble
Marble has never gone out of style, and luxury kitchens often feature this natural stone. Heavily veined marble lends an air of authority to modern kitchens and is one of the most eye-catching features in the room. High-quality marble is unmistakable and its bold appearance works well with many color palettes.
If you prefer a streamlined look, you’ll love the simplicity that handleless cabinets offer. This handleless design trend in the kitchen is expected to continue, as it provides a sleek look without compromising functionality. The absence of handles allows other features in the kitchen to shine through, so this element of design is ideal for complementing your favorite details.
Pale Wood Finishes
Pale wood finishes such as ash are a top choice for kitchens. Light-grained wood is especially nice in combination with an abundance of natural light. Since we see many kitchens with floor-to-ceiling windows, or even skylights to flood the room with sunshine, pale wooden touches are a mainstay in this market.
The kitchen is undoubtedly one of the most important rooms in the home. Whether you’re an avid cook or simply like to enjoy your cup of coffee at the island each morning, the kitchen should be a space that you look forward to spending time in.
