Design Build Team recently came across The 2012 Kitchen Design Trends list on styleathome.com. We wanted to share a few of the trends from the list with you, and encourage you to think about how you want to remodel your own kitchen in 2012.
The Streamlined Kitchen
Hiding the “operations” of the kitchen allows for a simpler and neater look.
“Design trends are reflecting our more casual and collaborative method of living, preparing, cooking, eating and entertaining. Integrated appliances like drawer-style fridges, and fridges, ovens, microwaves and dishwashers fronted to match the cabinetry, all give a much cleaner look to the kitchen. ” -styleathome.com
Mixing and matching with stained-wood and painted-wood cabinetry
“It’s no longer just a stained-wood kitchen or a painted kitchen. We are starting to use stained wood and paint in the same kitchen.” - styleathome.com
The look of mixed materials in the kitchen will be popular this year. “The combination is warm and welcoming rather than sleek and impersonal,” says Lynda Felton, a Toronto-based stylist. - styleathome.com
