The place where you enjoy your morning coffee, prepare evening meals, and hang out with your family, the kitchen really is “the heart of the home.” At EG Home, we design all of our beautiful, modern, efficient kitchens to enhance your daily routine. But our designers also keep abreast of the current design trends and guide you into incorporating them into your home in a suitable way.
Here are a few hot design features that our “trend authorities” are seeing that will inspire you to turn your kitchen into your all-time dream space:
Full Height Backsplash | Hanstone Calacatta Venato
This beautiful quartz is inspired by Italian marble, but is infinitely more durable and practical. In this application, it runs from the countertops all the way to the ceiling, creating a seamless look. It adds sophistication and warmth to any kitchen.
Black Marble Look | DalTile Perpetuo in Infinite Black | Silestone Nero Marquina
There is something infinite about black marble. It’s been used in so many variations for eons – walls and floors, mantles, and countertops. It’s instantly recognizable yet avante garde. The black marble “look” is easily and practically attained via porcelain floor tile or quartz countertops.
Wide Plank Floors | Kahrs Lux 6” Oak in Coast
Wide plank wood flooring adds instant charm and depth to any room. The unique grain and natural color variations of oak are classics for a reason. These stained oak floors combine warm, earth tones with a cooler grey hue for a more modern look.
Warm Wood Cabinetry | Jacksonville Cherry in Colonial by Massachusetts Design
While white kitchens will always have a place in the design pantheon, there’s something inevitably comforting about wood stained in a warm finish. These elegant cherry wood cabinets have a Colonial stain, giving them a contemporary yet familiar feel.
Open Shelving | Cherry Shelves in Walnut by Massachusetts Design
Whether for storing everyday items or displaying decorative treasures, open shelving has been around for centuries. But if you’re thinking “country kitchen”, think again! In this case, open shelves enhance a sleek and contemporary kitchen that features lots of darker wood but applied with modern design techniques.
Brass Fixtures | Kohler Crue Faucet in Moderne Brushed Brass | Brushed Gold Cabinet Hardware by Hickory Hardware
The current trend in brass & brushed gold is more sophisticated. When paired with a classic blue & white color palette, the effect is cool and timeless.
Bold Tones | Hudson Maple Cabinet in Denim by Massachusetts Design | DalTile Mythology Picket in ChronosI4 | Kahrs Texture Flooring in Rohoptic
For decades, color was used only as an accent in kitchens. But recently, a bolder use of color has been trending. Cabinets in saturated, vibrant tones. Countertops with striking hues. Tile backsplashes that are works of art. It’s a great way to add personality to the room you spend so much time in!
