Here are the kitchen trends for 2016.

Metallic Kitchen Trends

Metallic styles hit it big in 2015, and their time to shine is hardly over. Metallic finishes have traveled from fashion and accessories over to kitchen decor to add a luxe feel to your cooking area. Step into 2016 by embracing warm, coppery hues in your backsplash to add a sophisticated ambiance to your kitchen.

 

Enhancing Kitchen Gadgets

And we don’t mean electric mixers. One huge kitchen trend for 2016 is the addition of technology into your everyday kitchen design. Docking stations, charge stands, built-in Bluetooth ceiling speakers, and convenient stands to hold your tablet are all trends incorporating themselves into the modern 2016 kitchen.

Smooth Gliding Cabinets

Move over vintage lovers, modern cabinetry with soft close cupboards are going to be the big kitchen trend for 2016. They days of the loud, banging cupboards and drawers are behind you, with smooth and sleek soft close cupboards coming in for the win.

Neutral Kitchen Colors

It used to be when you thought of painting your kitchen, soft blues and other pastels would immediately come to mind. With the dawning of 2016 kitchen trends, pastels have moved aside in favor of rich neutrals of gray, taupe, browns, and other muted neutrals. These colors add to the already sophisticated feel of 2016 kitchen trends and make your breakfast nook feel like more than a place you should eat your cereal.

Unique Patterns

Just because 2016 is coming off a little more refined in style doesn’t mean fun and playful designs have fallen to the wayside. 2016 kitchen trends are seeing a rise in geometric and unique designs. Take a look at our geometric Cuban tile collection or other patterned stone options, such as Kamarika granite, to get a better example of how to incorporate these bold yet trendy patterns into your kitchen with ease.

Kitchen trends for 2016 are fresh, stylish, and the perfect way to start off your New Year. Affordable stone flooring, countertops, and backsplashes mean you don’t need a big change, or a big budget to make a big difference in your home this year.

What to Consider When Choosing Flooring Color

Whether your room is open and large or small and cozy often makes a difference in choosing the best flooring color. Light hues, for example, often open up a small space and give it the feel of being larger. On the other hand, darker, earthy color choices for the floor can make a large and cold room feel warmer and more intimate.
