KITCHEN PLATE RACKS

We love the look of vintage plate racks! They give the room some extra charm while also providing ample storage either on your countertop or mounted on the wall. Would even help with drying damp dishes right out of the dishwasher!

STEEL HOODS

Traditional stainless steel or basic painted wood seem to be turning into a thing of the past as we make way for custom kitchen hoods. “We’ve been implementing steel and plasterwork into our designs more and more,” says Janice Barta of Barta Interiors, “and we are loving how these are becoming a focal point and conversation piece for our kitchens.”

DOGGIE CANTINAS

Areas specifically designed for feeding man’s best friend are becoming the latest pet-focused trend. Using an area under your kitchen cabinets to display dog bowls and food, as well as treats and leashes, will leave your kitchen space (and floor) tidier.

COLORFUL WINDOW FRAMES

An easy way to bring in a pop of color without committing to a dramatic reno on your kitchen cabinets or walls is a painted window frame.

HEATED COUNTERTOPS

Yes, you read that correctly. A trend that has been on the rise is warming the countertop overhang area, specifically on cold granite and quartz. Countertop warming mats can be adhered underneath the area where you frequently lean, giving your family some high-end comfort and luxury.

UNIQUE BACKSPLASH DESIGNS

Subway tiles are slowly losing their time in the spotlight as people are moving on to larger tile slabs as well as custom backsplashes that incorporate patterns and texture.  Neutral patterns with natural texture is another option for those looking for a classic look.

GOLD HARDWARE

Gold was never really “out” but it’s certainly making its way into upcoming kitchen trends. You will typically see that gold hardware today is a bit more muted and often has a matte finish.

KITCHEN LADDERS

“Ladders are having a resurgence, making a striking and practical addition to traditional style kitchens,” explains Jamie Blake, the Founder of Blakes London. The use of ladders is especially popular in properties where rooms that wouldn’t traditionally have been used as a kitchen are re-purposed.

FUN LIGHT FIXTURES

If you want to add more character to your kitchen, your lights should be the first place to look. No need to go extra large as small fixtures are doing the job in a stylish yet functional way! Draw the eyes upward in your kitchen by adding some fun statement lighting.

ASH CABINETRY

Homes & Gardens has confirmed that we should expect the welcoming of warm, paler woods in upcoming kitchens. Warm finishes, such as neutral countertops and tumbled stone floors, are also on the rise. We are here for it!
