Posted on December 2, 2012 by jlamberski
Nature-inspired color palettes, energy efficiency and sustainability will continue to drive kitchen designs in 2013. But there are also some exciting newer trends on the horizon. Here are few of the latest kitchen design features that are predicted to gain in popularity in 2013.
1. Hidden Kitchen Appliances: Modern appliance integration is all about the seamless look. Even traditional style kitchens are being designed using modern hideaway appliances.
2. Stylish Range Hoods: Now available in a wide range of materials and styles from sleek stainless still to rustic chic reclaimed wood, this practical kitchen feature is being used to enhance the look and feel of the overall design.
3. Decorative Kitchen Sinks: Similar to range hoods, form is meeting function when it comes to sinks as more and more kitchen designers are seeking out sinks with added aesthetic value.
4. Restaurant-Quality Kitchen Faucets: Just because they are for cleaning doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish. Expected to be top sellers in the coming year are pull-down kitchen faucets that look as beautiful as they perform.
5. Sleek Glass Backsplashes: The ever-popular glass tile backsplashes are slowly being replaced by backsplashes with a single sheet of glass to produce an ultra chic look.
