5 New Trends in Kitchen Design


When Ferguson Kitchen, Bath, and Lighting Gallery recently surveyed homeowners on which room they wished to redesign, 47% replied “the kitchen.  Here’s what’s in and what’s out when it comes to kitchen design.



In: Wood counters and floors

Out:  Cool gray cabinets and white counters



In:  Hide the hood behind a false cabinet front to emphasize the backsplash

Out: Ostentatious hoods



In:  Portable tables

Out: Islands with two levels and eating space that cut food prep space in half



In: Glass-fronted storage

Out: Open shelving where contents can get greasy



In: Stove tops and separate ovens installed elsewhere

Out: Standard range that disrupts visual continuity
