3 Kitchen Trends to Look Out For

Home improvement is much more than a popular 90's sitcom; it's the latest craze for homeowners as trends have been rapidly changing and continue to change throughout any given year. One of the rooms that is consistently being upgraded is the most important and popular room in any home: the kitchen. 

The kitchen is the heart and soul of a home. It's where families and friends gather to eat, talk, and laugh - that's why it's so important for it to be up to date and stylish. To do so and stay up to date, here are 3 kitchen trends to look out for: 

Technologically Advanced 

Being smart vs being smart is one in the same. To turn your kitchen into more than just a cooking and eating hangout, you can do so by adding charging stations, tablet hookups, and Bluetooth speakers to draw in both the kids and friends. You can do this with hidden hookups so you'll be able to keep your stylish look while also integrating the technology. 

Connecting to the Living Room 

If you're looking to make big changes, integrating the kitchen and living room is the way to go. Whether that means removing a wall, cabinetry, or swapping rooms, connecting your kitchen to the living room/television area can really bring the home together - this is a stylish and progressive move for families or individuals. 

Texture on Texture 

Contrast is big with any design and the latest craze is strong contrast that is done with texture on texture design. That means taking the same textures and repurposing it throughout the kitchen; that can be done with a carpet, chair/stool, upholstery, and art. 

Kitchen trends can be anything from making the area "smarter" to adding new patterns and everything in between.
