Indianapolis - On Saturday, August 23rd the Indianapolis DirectBuy hosted the representative from Norcraft Cabinetry, Monte Young to share tips on Kitchen Trends for 2014.
The presentation was well attended and the information was worth while.
Mr. Young shared that Americans are designing kitchens that fit their personal needs because it is the most important room in the house. Ideas are gathered using sources like Houzz, Pinterest, Restoration Hardware, Design Sponge and other sources.
Today’s consumer is looking for long lasting kitchens that create an individual comfort. Some will base their kitchen design on comforts from the past or brands or simplicity, but most of all something that is unique.
Some of the current trends is to use the island as tables and selecting cabinetry as furniture pieces. Painted finishes are popular, especially darker colors and gray which is the “in” color at this time for cabinetry. Blue is predicted to become the next new color to be popular for the kitchen. Other trends include straight wall layouts with the large island, floor to ceiling cabinetry, more drawer storage and working zones for cooking, prep, clean up and storage.
A few items that are a little bit newer to the kitchen design; LED Lighting is being used not only under the cabinets but also at the toe kick area to light up the floor space. Organization is a big desire for the cabinetry of a kitchen, with larger drawers being used for plate and cup storage, mixer shelves for heavier pieces of equipment, tray dividers to use for those smaller spaces and knife drawer inserts for those top drawers. The tall pullout shelving looked very beneficial.
The L and U shaped kitchens are still a wise way to use kitchen room space as well as the straight wall with the galley.
