Trend 1: Eat-In Kitchen as a Space Saver
Trend 2: White with Bold Accents
Don’t say goodbye to white kitchens just yet. Bolder designs are trending, but if homeowners were given the choice to remodel, white is still the most desired color palette for its practicality and ability to withstand the test of time. Designers are upping the “boldness” factor with colorful accents, statement lighting, and playful tile.
Trend 3: Shades of Blue
Despite the continued preference for white in the kitchen, designers are reporting a growing desire for bolder styles. To avoid hurting the longevity of the design, consider incorporating color into easier-to-swap areas like painting the island or lower cabinetry (versus full cabinetry). If you’re building production homes, be cautious with how bold you go. When introducing color, blue is a safer bet. As seen here, certain shades of blue can be considered a neutral, while still adding a touch of fun.
