Prevent Your Functional Kitchen From Being Boring

A functional, serviceable kitchen doesn’t have to be bland and dull. In fact, you can have a gorgeous, trendy, and stylish kitchen where you can move seamlessly from one task to the next. Here are a few ideas to help you keep your functional kitchen in Denver from becoming too boring. 

Implement Minimalist Design Aesthetics

One of the best ways to keep your functional kitchen stylish and trendy is to implement modern minimalist design aesthetics. This can include clean, straight lines throughout the space. This will prevent your design from affecting the functionality of your kitchen, while still enhancing the overall design of the room. Simplicity is not a bad thing when designing your dream kitchen.

Don’t Be Afraid of Color

You can add color by installing colored
cabinets in your kitchen.

If you want to spice up your functional kitchen, implement lots of color in your design. 

You can easily add color to this room through your accent pieces, such as towels, rugs, window treatments, etc. You can also branch out a little more with your kitchen design and be bold. Add some fun to your minimalistic modern kitchen design using a funky backsplash with lots of colors and designs. You may even consider stone countertops with a bold pattern that stands out and becomes a statement piece.  

If you truly want to implement color into your kitchen design, do not forget about your kitchen cabinets. Rather than stick to traditional wood cabinets or the popular white-colored cabinets, consider colored cabinets that are gray, blue, or black. You may even consider tuxedo cabinets where the upper cabinets are a lighter color than the lower cabinets.

The importance of a good sized, productive, and functional kitchen is vital nowadays. Design trends can come and go, but when it has to do with the heart of the home, it’s important to know what others are doing so in case you decide to sell your home, you can get the most out of your kitchen in terms of resell value!
Kitchen cabinets are one of the most important elements of a kitchen, and they are definitely what gives them their good looks (or not!). So these are the trends that took force in 2016 and that seem to be going to stick around for 2017:

Personalized Cabinets

Despite any trends, many homeowners are adding cabinet styles, colors, and functions that fit their needs and desires. And besides custom cabinet manufacturers, other cabinet companies are aware of this so they now offer several styles to try to adapt to any home design or style.

Clean Lines & Refined Design

Cabinet door styles have become simpler by using clean lines to ensure design flexibility in the long term. Due to the modern style increasing popularity, clean lines and subtle designs make sense for anyone looking to upgrade their kitchen cabinets.
Shaker style cabinets are also a popular trend in current kitchen renovations because of the classic and simple look they give to either a traditional or contemporary design.

Neutral Colors

Next to the clean line trend, neutral colors such as white, gray, or earthy tones are quite popular because they work well with a variety of design elements. These colors not only provide a sense of warmth but give you more design freedom to add bold colors elsewhere, providing a seamless blend throughout the house.

Functional Design

Nowadays, every aspect of the home needs to casually blend function and design, and kitchen cabinets are no exception. Thanks to that concept, you have a multiple of cabinet options that are not only beautiful, but that can fit your storage, organization, and access needs.

Horizontal Orientation

Squares and vertical rectangles are still very popular designs choices for kitchen cabinets, but there is also a rise in horizontal cabinetry demand. With wider cabinets there is not much need to stack cabinets if you have enough storage. Horizontal cabinets not only makes access much easier, they give your kitchen a cleaner, more refined look.

High-Tech Additions

Given the highly technological and connected world that we live in, many homeowners are looking to incorporate a tech perspective to their kitchen cabinets. Built-in charging stations, hands-free devices and tablet holders add functionality and value to the techy kitchen owner.
