Kitchens 2013

The new neutral – Designers are replacing the basics: white, cream, tan, and gray with green. You heard right, you can use green as your new neutral. Build a beautiful palette of colors around green!

Light the room – LED lighting is a real trend taking hold in kitchens across the country.

Non-traditional woods – Steer clear of cherry and maple woods. Alder, birch, oak, walnut, and bamboo are the new norms for cabinetry.

Hide it away – Integrated appliances like drawer-style fridges, and fridges, ovens, microwaves and dishwashers fronted to match the cabinetry give a clean look. We can now hide most of the ‘operations,’ and our kitchens.

Mixing it up – Designer David Bromstad says a collected, eclectic look is all the rage in design right now. Mixing kitchen finishes is a great way to get the collective look.

Nostalgia – Wall murals and prints work great as small focuses between cabinets and behind breakfast nooks.

Glass backsplashes – No seams, no grout, easy to clean—what more could you want? How about luminous, reflective colors? Back-painted glass backsplashes win on all counts.
