“In recent years the trend of open floor plans has been on the rise, and with it comes some innovative ideas to make the whole home work together.
The kitchen is borrowing style from the nearby living areas and is becoming less of a focal point as blurring the lines between rooms becomes necessary.
With these rooms vanishing into each other, we start to see elements from the living/entertaining area merging into the kitchen, such as open shelving and more functional drawer storage.”

3 New Kitchen Trends To Consider:
open shelving »
Open shelving is becoming more of a staple in the kitchen. Not only does it make items easier to access, it also puts them on display.
Drawers are increasing in the kitchen. Not only are we seeing standard base cabinets being swapped for easier-to-access drawer bases, but also with the open shelving trend, the drawer is needed to take on more functions.
