Kitchen trends change with the wind, and it can sometimes be hard to keep up. The good news is that ultimately, your kitchen design comes down to function and your personal style, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t be inspired by the latest kitchen trends of 2016.

Soft, muted colors are making a comeback

White has for a long time been the predominant color in kitchen decor. White symbolized cleanliness, which is crucial in a kitchen. No one wants a meal cooked from a kitchen that looks dirty. White will also brighten your kitchen, bringing more light and more energy. But, white accents and colors in a modern kitchen are slowly being fazed out by more subtle, muted colors. We’re not talking bright, bold colors, but just a hint of yellow, green, and blue accents are making their way into the 2016 kitchen designs.

Muted blues are making their way into modern kitchen designs to offset the traditional white.

Of course, a big splash of color can make a great statement in a kitchen otherwise filled with muted or white accents. And, it’s right on trend with a modern/Euro kitchen design.

Functional kitchen design

But, it’s not all about aesthetics and style. Your color choices are important, but it is also important that our kitchens keep up with technology. When you are designing your kitchen, take all of your electronic devices, tablets, phones, etc. into consideration. You’re no longer going to need space for your bulky kitchen TV, but you may want a charging station for your tablets so that you can watch your favorite shows as you’re cooking dinner for your family.

Of course, you’re also going to want a kitchen that can house all of your kitchen appliances without taking up all of your counter space. Functionality should be a big part of your design, and that includes all of our gadgets and toys, whether they can cook a meal, or keep you up to date on the latest news and trends by having your phone oriPadd handy.
