8 Kitchen trends and thoughts from builder Jeff Danberry of the Danberry Building Corp
I have been designing and remodeling kitchen for homeowners for over 30 years. Over that time, I have seen some trends and common themes for new kitchens today. A major trend in the last 3 or 4 years is designing your kitchen as more of a living space for more than just food. More often than not, it is the place where family and friends congregate, do homework or watch TV. The kitchen is becoming the most used room in the house. With today’s innovative technology Kitchens can look like a living room, appliances can be hard to find because they are well incorporated and blended into the actual cabinetry of the kitchen.
1. Connecting the kitchen with other living spaces
I continuously see homeowners wanting to incorporate living spaces within or right beside the kitchen. This allow friends and family to be closely located to the kitchen while food is being prepared and even long after the food dinner has been served and the dishes have been cleaned. This allows families to spend more time together. Open spaces is become a very common theme.
