Remodeling is the opportunity to finally get the kitchen of your dreams. As you start working on your design, you can pull ideas from the latest trends. These features tend to provide some key benefits, while also modernizing your home for a fresh look. Consider each of the trends below to make the most of your kitchen remodeling project.

What Are the Latest Kitchen Remodeling Trends?

1. Hoodless Ventilation

Contemporary styles demand clean lines and minimalism, and a stove without a hood achieves this. Hidden hoods, such as downdraft ventilation, keep your kitchen clean with a modern look. It also allows the focus of the space to stay on your gorgeous appliances or backsplash.

2. Natural Elements

Bringing nature into the kitchen adds drama and texture. Try extending your natural stone beyond the countertop with a waterfall edge or a tall backsplash all the way to the ceiling. Reclaimed wooden beams can be tied in with the ceiling or dramatic shelves.

3. Dark Floors

4. Bold Color

The all-white kitchen is on its way out, with bold color becoming more popular. People are painting their cabinetry bold colors or getting dark appliances. Popular colors include green, red, blue, pink, and yellow. If you want to try this trend without going all out, try painting your island cabinets a bold color, with a neutral theme throughout the rest of the kitchen.

5. Copper

Metallic finishes continue to be a trend, with copper as the latest popular feature. Consider adding copper hardware, hanging your cookware in the open, or even installing a metallic backsplash above your range.
