2013 Kitchen Design Trend Introduction

Updated:2013-03-18 11:16:10
Do you know the secret to the most fashionable kitchens? A neutral palette that's fresh and compelling. If you aren't looking for a total redo, a jazzy addition like a contemporary faucet or industrial lighting can update the space with minimal fuss.

First of all is tweaking black and white. The look may change as styles evolve, but the appeal of the black-and-white kitchen never dies. It's all about high contrast — this design from IKEA juxtaposes painted white lacquer cabinets (from IKEA's LIDING? line) and Absolute Black granite countertops, but it also benefits from the tension between country and modern. Warm rustic hardwood floors are an effective counterpoint to sleek cabinet materials.

Secondly is small kitchen with bright lights. Bold color isn't the only way to create excitement. Kitchen designer, Vasi Ypsilantis used these oversized light fixtures with black fabric shades from Tech Lighting to add some wow: "They're about 2 feet in diameter and are slightly larger than you would expect for the space," she says. "But they give a great sense of depth perception and create drama in a room with a typical low ceiling." The luxurious cabinets are Poggenpohl's Marsh Oak Veneer with a rich near-black stain.

Moreover, farmhouse flair is also quite popular in 2013. Kohler's apron-front stone sinks (shown in white) come in a variety of colors, including new neutral tones Dune, a soft sandy shade, and Suede, a dark hue that pairs well with granite countertops. "Apron-front sinks have never gone out of style," says interior designer Christine Baumann. "They add a timeless focal point to any kitchen. From a practical standpoint, they're deep enough to hold large pots and platters for easier cleanup — a shorter person can even benefit from better access to the sink." Christine notes that because of their visual weight, apron-front sinks are best suited to medium-size or large kitchens.
