bring simplicity and practicality to your new kitchen
White, grey, and simple forms are dominating in current kitchen designs. “Overall, in home design in general, we’ve seen everything moving toward a streamlined look,” says Alexa Noel, senior manager of research and innovation at KraftMaid. “There will always be traditional … but it’s now less of a Tuscan kitchen and more toward Shaker.”
It’s a step towards minimalism to balance hectic lifestyles. “It goes back toward simplicity,” Noel says. “It’s not fussy; it’s easy to look at, it’s livable, it will last a long time.”
That minimalistic desire translates into kitchens with handle-free cabinetry and panel-covered appliances.
Lots of variations of neutral white and grey tones exist within cabinet finishes, both in paints and stains, resulting in a timeless appeal that’s also quite safe as a long-term design decision.
Noticeable contrasting two-tone cabinetry adds interest and personality while maintaining design simplicity.
Accessories that add functionality to the kitchen, such as charging drawers, pull-outs, and drawer organisers, help to maintain order and make the most of limited spaces.
