We’re seeing some exciting developments in kitchen design that are sure to inspire your next remodel. Here are the top 10 kitchen remodeling trends we’re loving right now.


1. Smart Kitchens

Technology is becoming an integral part of modern kitchens. Integrating technology into your kitchen design can make cooking and entertaining more convenient and enjoyable, from smart appliances to voice-activated lighting.

2. Bold Cabinet Colors

While white kitchens remain popular, we’re seeing a rise in bold cabinet colors like navy blue, forest green, and even black. These rich hues add a dramatic flair and make a strong style statement.

3. Open Shelving

Open shelving continues to be a favorite for its airy feel and accessibility. It’s perfect for displaying your favorite dishware and adding a personal touch to your kitchen.

4. Mixed Metal Finishes

Gone are the days of matching every metal finish in your kitchen. Mixing metals, such as brass, copper, and stainless steel, can add depth and visual interest to your space.

5. Large Kitchen Islands

A large kitchen island serves as a focal point and provides additional workspace, storage, and seating. It’s a versatile feature that enhances both the functionality and aesthetics of your kitchen.

6. Sustainable Materials

Sustainability is a growing priority in kitchen design. Homeowners are opting for eco-friendly materials like reclaimed wood beams, recycled countertops, and energy-efficient appliances to create a greener kitchen. [saddle rd]

7. Statement Backsplashes

Statement backsplashes, whether with bold patterns or unique textures, are a great way to add personality and style to your kitchen. They can serve as the centerpiece of your design.

8. Ample Storage Solutions

Maximizing storage without compromising on design is key. Innovative storage solutions, like pull-out pantries, deep drawers, and hidden compartments, keep your kitchen organized and clutter-free.

9. Multi-functional Spaces

Kitchens are becoming more than just a place to cook. Homeowners are incorporating elements like built-in desks, breakfast nooks, and cozy seating areas to create a multi-functional space that caters to various needs.

10. Natural Wood Cabinetry

Natural wood cabinetry is making a strong comeback. This trend emphasizes the beauty of organic materials, bringing warmth and character to the heart of the home. Unlike painted or laminated finishes, natural wood showcases unique grain patterns and textures, adding a timeless elegance that blends well with both modern and traditional styles.
