As you’re planning your Weston kitchen renovation, it can be helpful to know which current kitchen design trends appear to have staying power and which ones are here today, gone tomorrow.
Obviously, you have to take your own tastes into account – it doesn’t matter how popular a trend is if you hate it! And if you’re in your forever home, it’s fine to absolutely indulge your personal preferences regarding kitchen design. However, if your timeline includes selling your place in the next few years, you may want to steer clear of the trends and embrace classic kitchen design.
Kitchen Design Trends That Have Staying Power
Color – Painted cabinetry doesn’t have to be white, grey or beige. Soft blues and greens are the hues of the moment; they’re a natural fit for the upscale coastal living feel so popular in the Weston area. Matte black and polished nickle finishes for hardware are hot as the sun right now, but don’t limit yourself: choose what you like & if the love fades over time, swapping out the hardware’s an easy, affordable way to freshen your kitchen’s appearance.
Open Shelving – Open shelving is a commitment, but if you love the clean modern look, nothing else will do. As Weston kitchen designers, we recommend open shelving to homeowners who take joy in displaying their dishes, glassware, and the contents of their cupboards. Remember, open shelving isn’t an all or nothing deal: you can have some open shelving for the things you want to show off, and more traditional cabinetry for the things you don’t. (And if you really want things out of sight and out of mind, don’t forget about the power of the pantry!)
Eat In Kitchens are Here to Stay
Of all the kitchen trends we’ve seen come and go over the years, the eat in kitchen has real staying power. Formal dining rooms are not on many family’s priority list, while a cheerful, comfortable place to eat meals together regularly is.
