If you’re interested in the design trends for remodeling kitchens in 2016 then you’re in the right place. The following are some of the most popular updates and upgrades being made to kitchens. You’re bound to find something you like between the built-in technology to integrating the kitchen and living room.
Kitchens are Becoming More High Tech
Innovation can be found everywhere. This innovative technology is now being used to make things easier in the kitchen.
Thanks to docking stations and chargers for phones and tablets you have access to your music and recipes in the kitchen. In the future appliances will gain even more accessibility and innovation thanks to built-in wine coolers, along with appliances like ovens and coffee makers that can be controlled via a smartphone. Innovative storage options will also provide more space and convenience to storing your kitchen supplies.
Classy Metals are Coming Back
We’re seeing a comeback of natural and classy metals beyond the metallic faucet, knobs, and lights we saw last year. There will likely be a decline in wood range hoods as industrial metal hoods, or hoods that combine both wood and metal, continue to gain popularity. These metal accents also use neutral tones, meaning they provide elegance to any kitchen.
Commercial Appliances are Getting Residential Uses
While you may not be the next Food Network Star, you probably still enjoying making restaurant quality food at home. If that’s the case, you should invest in commercial kitchen appliances.
Commercial appliances, including extra-large refrigerators, and lots of counter space give you a professional-grade kitchen at home.
More Muted Color Palettes Along With Contrasting Textures
Color schemes are changing a lot this year. White will always be a popular choice, but backsplashes and cabinets use grays, charcoal, tinted white tones and even more neutral pastels like light blue or green in their color schemes.
We’re also going to see more texture variations in kitchens. It may not be just mixing and matching textures either. We should also expect more varying patterns of texture. Stone may be used with a number of different finishes to provide different textures in a space for example.
Minimalism is Becoming More Popular
Simplicity is the new luxury. Minimalism will continue to be popular in 2016 as designs will use mostly white color palettes, wood textures, and uncluttered counters. The designs are similar to classic 60s modern or Nordic styles. They offer a high degree of simplicity while keeping the kitchen functional.

Making the Most out of Storage Space
It seems like no matter how big the kitchen is storage space will always be a problem. It’s definitely a problem for people living in apartments, condos, and townhouses. Thanks to the issue of space we’re seeing a greater focus on ways to increase storage space without taking up more room on the outside.
Popular trends in kitchen storage include multi-tiered draws and pull outs. These sit happily in the corner of a kitchen and offer a lot of inner space without taking up too much outer space.
Bringing the Kitchen and Living Spaces Together
People in a house are most likely to congregate in the kitchen. As a result people are choosing to replace traditional dining spaces with more comfortable sofas, chairs, lamps and rugs.
This is a trend that brings the kitchen in line with the living area. Providing people with a kitchen and living space that promotes relaxation is a great way to tell visitors they are welcome to stay for a while.
