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.
Smart 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.
Well-Lit Cabinetry: Gone are the days when ceiling lights were the primary mode of illuminating one’s kitchen. 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.
