In 2019 the average time people were spending in the kitchen preparing meals is 37 minutes to one hour, but with much of the country on lockdown for most of the year, people are spending more cooking at home. This has led to a significant increase in home remodeling projects and kitchens are top on the list. Are you looking to upgrade the look of your kitchen this year? Here are 8 popular kitchen trends we see happening this year.
Simple, Sleek Design
Simplicity is the focus of many kitchen designs. Flat, simple panel door and drawer fronts with no-fuss hardware. Spaces are designed with ample storage in base cabinets and pantries, leaving the counters to be clutter-free. In addition, there is an increase in the use of open shelving instead of upper cabinets.
Neutral Color Palette
All-white kitchens are still hugely popular, but grey is quickly taking over. Grey offers a neutral base, allowing you to bring in pops of color to express your personality. In addition, we are seeing the use of a two-tone color scheme, using a dark grey on the bottom and white cabinets on the top.
People are caring more about the environment and are looking to make their kitchen more eco-friendly. More attention is being paid to the efficiency of appliances and repurposing of materials such as barnwood and palette wood. Additionally, people are reusing bottles, jars and metal to create décor and shelving brackets.
