DESIGN REAWAKENED

What was once off trend or considered old school is being reawakened and brought back to life. And with people’s creative juices flowing more than ever, we’re seeing a wide range of trends, like floor-to-ceiling floral wall coverings and unique approaches to renovating. Homes are being transformed into works of art, showcasing style people never knew they had – and we like what we’re seeing.

 

Working closely with our Design and Insights team and some of our favorite influencers, we’ve gathered our top six design trends that are turning heads.

BRAND NEW LOOKS FOR LESS

Painting your cabinets, changing the hardware, updating your faucet, swapping out your drop-in sink and installing open shelving are simple, low-cost ways to freshen up your kitchen and make it feel bigger.

POPS OF COLOR

Rich blues and greens are finding a home in today’s kitchens. Apply your favorite bold color to your cabinets, accessories or even color block more than one hue. Add gold or copper accents for an extra touch of luxe.

Color gives a room, product, or space personality without overwhelming the overall design.

Designing a kitchen comes with a lot of research and making decisions that will make your space function beautifully. #ElkayPartner When designing this space, selecting this beautiful @Elkay_USA Fireclay sink was an easy choice. It’s both scratch and stain resistant, and looks gorgeous in this white finish. This sink model includes this beautiful walnut cutting board, which makes food prep a breeze.

do you start when designing a kitchen? This is a question I've asked myself many times, and for every kitchen we've designed and executed, the answer has been different. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why we started with the @elkay_usa Explore Bridge Faucet and how my ideas unfolded from that point on.

One of the prettiest spots is the kitchen in our new home. It also doubles as the perfect spot for Gretchen to cut fresh flowers thanks to our @Elkay_USA Fireclay Farmhouse sink with a built in cutting board. #ElkayPartner We chose to cover the front with marble but you can also leave off the marble and showcase the beauty of the fireclay.
