Trend Talk: In the Kitchen

We’re back with Trend Talk Tuesdays, and today we’re taking a closer look at trends influencing the heart of your home: the kitchen. Get the skinny on the looks, finishes and designs that will make up this year’s most on-trend kitchens.

One-level workstations: Say good-bye to your high-low islands with a bar and counter at separate heights. A reason for this trend is the increasing popularity of the double island.

Double sinks: With multiple islands, we are also noticing a trend towards double sinks. Typically, the second sink is used for meal preparation, located in the secondary island.

Statement light fixtures: Large, eye-catching light fixtures, especially above the entertainment island, are also popular for kitchens this year.

White appliances: White is becoming more popular than stainless steel when it comes to kitchen appliances. The Whirlpool White Ice collection is an example of this.

Oversized island seating: Formal dining areas are being replaced with extended island seating for the whole family.

What elements are you planning for your kitchen remodel or new home?
