Are you ready to breathe new life into your kitchen? From exciting color palettes to sophisticated backsplashes, explore five sizzling trends reshaping culinary spaces. Get ready to indulge your senses as you discover how top designers blend functionality with style, crafting spaces where every moment is a culinary adventure.

Accent Tiling

Tiles have been trending for a while now, with unique and exotic tiles taking center stage. Usually seen as a popular choice for backsplashes, tiles have become a main feature in kitchens, from eye-catching flooring to unique ceiling accents. If you’re going to cover a lot of surface area with tiles, remember to balance out the remaining elements of the kitchen! Opt for neutral or calming earth tones, and make sure not to add too much drama.

Monochromatic Color Palettes

Sleek and simple, this beautiful white kitchen showcases just how powerful a monochromatic color palette can be. A great look for those wanting balance and tranquility in the home, as it provides an orderly and polished look and feel. A monochromatic color palette will undoubtedly give your kitchen a whole new wow factor, while creating an understated and approachable aesthetic. Darker tones will give off more of a masculine-glam style, while lighter colors will look a bit more modern and current (think Scandinavian design).

High Ceilings

Let there be light! Yes – higher ceilings give way for more natural light in the kitchen. Complementary to both dark and light color palettes, kitchen interiors look more spacious than ever with high-vaulted ceilings and plenty of windows (Hello, skylights!). Higher ceilings mean getting a little more creative with your design. To draw the eye up, include some decorative elements at higher levels. In the above design, Betty Wasserman does a great job at incorporating height with long pendants and a feature wall piece.

A Peek Of Color

This “pop of color” trend goes well with a monochromatic color palette, as discussed above, or with a high-contrast black-and-white kitchen. Small color bursts are easier to take in and aren’t as “loud” as full accent walls or wallpapers. I love sneaking in touches of color to unexpected places, such as the kitchen island, cabinetry, kitchen door, or appliances.

Geometric Backsplashes

Geometric shapes are a classic pattern and a great way to add some playful flair to a space. I love how designers and homeowners are experimenting more with unique backsplashes, allowing them to have a pop of personality in there. While replacing an entire backsplash could be costly, especially if you’re not planning a kitchen update or remodel, try out some removable backsplash wallpapers! It’s so easy, cost-effective, and can quickly be changed to something else!
