Sure, we’re still sticking with the white cabinets, clean finishes, quartz countertops and hidden lighting, but now it’s combined with airy and light colors and open shelving or white cabinets with light chestnut laminate flooring – anything to make your home feel like home!

  • Smart Kitchens are Still in Style

Fancy gadgets and appliances are all the rage nowadays and for good reason. With kitchens becoming more efficient, there’s more space on countertops and easier function. With automatic machinery, fittings, and gadgets that make your job easier, these integrated appliances are among the biggest trends of the decade and going strong.
  • White Cabinets, White Countertops, Pale Floors

White Cabinets

White cabinets are a classic choice because of their clean, crisp look. Paired with all-white countertops and pale wood (or laminate) floors, and you’ll have yourself a timeless and beautiful kitchen that’s effortlessly chic. Even though all-white kitchens are a default choice for many, if you don’t want such a bright kitchen, you can always go with the understated grey which goes well with neutral colors and fittings as well.

  • WPC Flooring, Instead of Hardwood Floors
  Aside from being eco-friendly, WPC flooring is also inexpensive and available in a variety of designs and colors. From classic hardwood to darker floors, you’ll basically be spoilt for choice, especially if you’re looking for a modern style, rather than a traditional look.
  • Kitchen Islands are Getting Larger

A kitchen island is essential, especially if your kitchen has the capacity to have an island squeezed into it. However, kitchen islands are now being used to serve multiple purposes. Stove and hobs, added shelving and cabinets and special seating are a few basic choices that are added to the island so they can make the kitchen more clutter-free.

Storage Options in Cabinetry

Storage is a major annoyance for those who like to have a well-functioning kitchen. Basic drawers and shelves utilize a lot of space and can be designed in a way so that the user is able to make the most of even the smaller spaces. Kitchen cabinets and drawers can be rebuilt to have pull-outs and dividers and attached wastebaskets on the inside of the doors. And these are just some of the basic features.

  • Bleached and Blanched Wood-Style Laminate Flooring

Kitchen cabinet and flooring color combos that contrast against one another are favorites in the interior design world. Since not everyone likes those glossy brown wood floors, designers are instead using bleached and blanched wood to get that ashy white look so the natural wood grain is visible, and pairing it with softer color cabinets and walls to make it soothing to the eye.
