For a while, open shelving was all the rage. Now we are seeing a transition back to upper cabinets. Some people prefer these closed cabinets due to easier upkeep. Open shelves collect dust and need to be neat at all times to look aesthetic. Instead, we are seeing upper cabinets to keep the clean, neat look and to have more storage. If you still like the idea of open shelves you could opt for upper cabinets with glass doors so it still feels more open.
Subtle, chic countertops will always be a good look, however, bold veining and colors are starting to take over. We are also seeing more projects run these countertops up as the backsplash to create a very cohesive, luxurious look. All together, bold countertops are a sure way to create a focal point in your home that makes a beautiful statement.
Having an accent wall, or even a full room, painted a moody color has grown to be quite popular. Some colors are very bold while others tend to have more muted tones. This adds a lot of depth in a room and, depending on how you style it, can even make a room feel larger, smaller, wider, or taller. It creates a very intimate feeling in any space and can really display a sense of personalization
Many people are moving away from gray tones and going back to warm neutrals. We are seeing a lot of warm colors being utilized for flooring, cabinets, paint and more as it adds brightness and coziness into your home. Mixing different natural tones together is very common to really bring an organic element inside.
While patterned tile is still a great choice, many people are choosing textured tiles to add dimension to their home. This is seen a lot in backsplashes, accent walls, fireplaces, and more. Textured tiles can be geometric, organic, or abstract with a large range of color options. It's a great way to add character into any project.
Black anything is always in style. More and more people are utilizing black on large and small scales as it has a very clean look to it. Whether it's an accent wall, floor tile, hardware, or anything else, black has a way of bringing a luxurious feel in the simplest way. It is also very common to see black mixed with natural tones and textures as they blend very well together.
