Taking a Look at Today's Kitchen Design Trends

Last updated 6 years ago

Whether you’re looking to freshen up your kitchen design or completely reimagine it, there are many exciting kitchen design ideas to consider. When recreating your kitchen, think about its color scheme, lighting, functionality, seating, fixtures, and appliances. Incorporate current kitchen furniture ideas into your design by learning a little more about what’s popular right now:

Bold Colors and Bright Lights

For kitchen color schemes, deep browns and bright whites are en vogue among interior designers. Consider furnishings and cabinets with sleek, dark wood as a lower base and complement them with lighter-colored counters and window treatments. You can even choose hanging light fixtures that feature colors from your design scheme, incorporating the ceiling into your overall kitchen theme.

Dual-Purpose Dining Tables

Some homeowners are opting to use a dining table as both a kitchen island and dining space—this is especially popular in modern apartments and homes without a dining room. The trend creates a communal dining experience, with food being cooked and served all around your guests.


Perfect for serving breakfast with a side of conversation, barstools offer a great way to enjoy a meal while saving space. They also allow the host to prepare dishes while conversing with guests over the counter. Consider backless stools to retain a sense of openness. For barstools with back support, muted red leathers are gaining popularity.

Farmhouse Flair

Simple, functional old-world designs with a modern twist are also popular right now. Cast-iron sinks and classically inspired faucets mix familiar charm with up-to-date design. Farmhouse-inspired kitchens and old-fashioned Americana décor are also coming back.
