Following the latest kitchen design trends can be a bad idea. If not exactly dangerous, it can be ill-advised when installing a new kitchen, as your kitchen will last far longer than any trend that is currently in style. There are some items that are safe to follow the latest trends, like hardware, as it is simple to switch out when you get tired of it. Other things, like cabinet doors or paint colors, are more labor-intensive to switch out.
Beyond Kitchen Design Trends
Instead of aiming for having a trendy kitchen, consider aiming for a kitchen that is fashionable and functional. This way, you will love your kitchen even when the current trends have passed or changed.
When choosing the style of cabinetry that is right for your kitchen, consider what type of cabinetry flows with the style of your home, its architecture, and your lifestyle.
You can pull inspiration from existing millwork or cabinetry in other parts of your home. In this way, the kitchen will fit in with other parts of your home and give the whole home a cohesive feel.
By doing these things, you will make sure that the kitchen is a good fit for the home, regardless of the current kitchen design trends.
If you want the kitchen to have a completely different look from the rest of the home, it’s possible to make it look good as well. This works best when the kitchen is separate from the rest of the home and accessed through a doorway, as opposed to a wide opening. With this style of home, you can have a modern or contemporary kitchen in a heritage home, and it will still look good.
