A trend in kitchen designs I just love is using decor items in the kitchen. How much warmer does a kitchen feel when there is artwork hanging and sconces in the space?
A big topic had to do with the use of kitchen islands and whether to have a range in the island or not. This picture is a great example of a safe way to have a range in your island by using a two tiered counter top. This way little hands can stay on one side while you cook on the other!
Many designers on the chat tweeted in unison as the conversation turned to cabinets. Open shelves are preferred as are stacking cabinets! Two trends to watch in the next year!
What's you opinion on current kitchen trends? Do you like the look of open shelves? Do you hang artwork in your kitchen now? What about islands with ranges in them? I would love to hear your thoughts!
