Top 8 Kitchen Trends For 2014 

1. Open kitchen design

Kitchens are merging with the home’s living space as a more relaxed and casual lifestyle is preferred.

 

2. Kitchen lighting

LED lighting leads the way in ambient and task lighting when natural is not sufficient.

 

3. Countertop material, black color

Mixing countertop materials is becoming more common, yet look for black as the color of choice in 2014.

 

4. Refaced kitchen cabinets

A cost saving measure, refacing the cabinets by incorporating glass insets or by painting them gray or off white are an affordable and dramatic way to change up your kitchen.

 

5. Apron/farmhouse sinks

Often associated with traditional kitchens, apron front sinks give clean lines and a simple front that works with even contemporary design.

 

6. Appliance finishes

Stainless steel still reigns, but integrating the appliances into the cabinetry, or by selecting a softer finish, is becoming popular.

 

7. Kitchen islands

Kitchens are becoming multipurpose areas of work and play.  Islands, particularly those that mimic furniture, offer creative and functional appeal.

 

8. Floating shelves

Open shelving allows for more use of color in the kitchen, and gives a clean, casual vibe.
