  • Modern kitchens : Modern may refer to present time or 21st century, the definition may vary, but when we say Modern Kitchen Designs, the first image that pops up in our mind is that of a    frameless cabinet with a sleek and basic hardware, strong horizontal or straight lines with the natural beauty of the material used in the manufacturing of the kitchen, shining through.
  • Traditional kitchens: Traditional kitchens are usually defined by the minute details they hold. These details can include arches, corbels, decorative moldings with natural wood and antique finish. 
  • Contemporary Kitchens: Contemporary kitchens are very polished and sleek in design, but where a Modern Kitchen celebrates grid and structure, a contemporary kitchen is generally more easy-    going and playful in terms of form and finish.
  • Transitional Kitchens: Transitional kitchens act as a brilliant moderator. With the real warmth and embrace of traditional design and the neat, simple and clear lines of contemporary design, transitional kitchens exhibit harmony and balance. Because they offer a great deal of flexibility, they are the perfect choice for people whose taste spans both.
  • Cottage Kitchens: Happy, warm and ingenuous, a cottage kitchen goes back to simpler days and invokes a sense of carefree and easy living. Muted colors, wooden floors, soft hued curtains and colorful accents will infuse your kitchen with cozy cottage comfort.
  • Eclectic kitchens: Are you a rebel who prefers a style which is different from the rest? It’s your kitchen, mix, match and season everything with a dash of boldness to get that desired distinct kitchen style. Get inspired from both modern and rustic styles, blend them with a well-traveled flair to get that eclectic kitchen of your dreams.

Mobel brings to you 3 trends that will define kitchen design this year.

Soft, Muted Color Scheme: Kitchen hues are changing rapidly and 2016 puts neutral palette right on top. Although white motifs will largely command the kitchen space, everything else from kitchen cabinets to backsplashes will have a strong influence of saturated tones. Also, kitchens are most likely to sport lightly stained wood tones like walnuts. A neutral well-designed light wood  kitchen is a safe choice. You can use it as either the central color or if you have a weakness for contrasting accents, you can always team it up in a two-tone kitchen.
Soft colors like pale blue, tinted whites, pale green, light gray are the new alternative to White. On the other hand, muted shades like pale yellow pastel, muted greens and blues can well be used as accent colors.

Modular-KitchenSmart Spaces: Hi-tech makeover is going to takeover every kitchen space by the end of 2016. With the rise of technology and smart devices, modular kitchens will have designated spots for smart devices very soon. The quintessential 2016 kitchen will have hidden charging points and stations to store smart devices like phones, tablets so that they can easily be accessible.

Extensive cabinet lighting is on the rise and is one of the trends to watch. When the lights are switched on, they look not only absolutely amazing but also offer a wonderful cooking experience, remarkable visibility.
