Hide It Away—

Hiding appliances behind cabinet doors is a continuing trend, including growing options such as under-counter refrigerator drawers, pull-out microwaves, and swapping out your free-standing appliances with sleek induction cooking tops paired with double wall ovens.

Mix It Up

Painted, stained, and matte finishes. Cabinets are on display with color choices expanding from the usual wood finishes.  Darker cabinets are also becoming a trend, as well as mixing uppers with lowers, open shelving, and pullout drawers instead of traditional cabinets.

Look Up

The most important consideration when it comes to your kitchen ceiling is still adequate lighting. However, coming in a close second is style. While there is no longer a sense of “right and wrong” in kitchen lighting anymore, the main takeaway is kitchen lighting and ceilings are quickly becoming an important part of a kitchen’s overall aesthetic.
