If you are going to design your new kitchen, I imagine that you will be looking for and informing yourself about new trends, to have a modern kitchen, up to date. It's not every day you buy a new kitchen, right?

Well, among the many trends that come and go, there are some that stand out above others today, and it is those changes, those innovations, that we are going to see. Take note and point out these trends for your new kitchen that we started.

Updated classic style

Kitchens in a classic but renewed, contemporary style have become very fashionable. They have a warmer and more welcoming character than plain kitchens, fully polished with straight lines, and offer more pronounced decorative versatility than minimalist kitchens. More moldings, more pronounced edges, warmer, closer. This makes them one of the most sought after styles for modern kitchens today. Let's keep going.

The classic stainless steel is not going to go extinct from extractor hoods, but it is true that more and more attention is being paid to this element of the kitchen, and due to this it has innovated in materials, finishes and designs, making the range of these is wider and more and more people decide to put a "different" hood in their kitchens.

From metal finishes, through glass and in a very wide range of colors and designs, personalized hoods are the order of the day.

Take into account the extractor hood of your new kitchen as it can give it a very different and original touch. It can perfectly become the main focus of attention.

Let's see another trend in kitchens.

Suspended or semi-suspended islands, bars and offices

This is another of the most stable trends of all. It is not usually seen in excess because the suspended or semi-suspended islands do not take advantage of the space below, and in the normal kitchens that we all have, we cannot afford to waste even an inch.

But when it comes to kitchen design, suspended or semi-suspended islands are another clear trend.

It is a purely decorative trend, since it does not provide anything practical, but it does give the kitchen a very modern touch, adding design and decoration, as well as lightness.

If you have enough space in your kitchen, study the possibility of a countertop or suspended bar to give character and personality to your kitchen.

warm finishes

Within the aesthetic part of the kitchens there are several colors and finishes that are trending. We have already reviewed the colors recently, and as for the finishes, in addition to the classic lacquered and ultra-refined ones, the warm ones have prevailed with great force.

Thus, medium and dark wood tones in furniture and cabinets are currently a trend in kitchens, since they offer a very warm finish.

open shelves

I don't quite understand how open shelving has become so fashionable in modern kitchens.

They are practical, yes, because you have everything more at hand, but aesthetically I finish seeing it. Still, it is undeniable that open shelving is a trend in kitchens and has to appear on this list of the top 10 kitchen trends.

Made of wood, metal, combined with the furniture or creating contrast, the truth is that open shelves offer a different look. In addition, as the bottom of the cabinet or wall is seen, they make kitchens appear larger or, at least, not so small in some cases.

Be that as it may, take note: Open shelves in kitchens take a lot.

Let's keep going.

double kitchen island

As with suspended islands, double islands are not seen in all kitchens, since not all of us have space to put a double island.

But it is a very rising trend in quality designer kitchens.

And it is not merely decorative or an aesthetic issue, installing two islands expands the function of the kitchen and keeps the space fluid. A very comfortable and practical kitchen is achieved.

dark kitchens

Kitchens are normally designed in white or in very light tones for a practical reason: being able to see food and dirt precisely.

Makes sense, doesn't it? A kitchen is a workplace, after all, in which we deal with something of the utmost importance such as food. It is normal that we want to see a stain right away in order to clean it or treat the food correctly.

Even so, dark kitchens have prevailed. And it is that with good lighting and with current antibacterial and easy-to-clean materials, we can work perfectly without having to resort to a white kitchen.

And when I say dark kitchens, I don't mean just dark woods, no, but completely black kitchens, even.

It must be recognized that a black kitchen has a beauty that contrasts with the idea that we all have in the collective imagination of a kitchen, making us see the kitchen with new eyes, with curiosity and a certain fascination.

Combined front or sill and worktop

To give continuity to the kitchen, combining the front of it with the same material or finish as that of the countertop is a perfect solution.

Aesthetically everything is more integrated, more refined and minimalist.

This is a trend that is seen a lot in avant-garde design kitchens, where the front is an extension of the countertop itself, without cuts, without interruptions, achieving a very modern design.

Countertops with contrast

Interestingly, another of the trends that have hit the hardest and that we can see the most, contrary to the previous one, is to create a strong contrast between the countertop and the furniture or the rest of the kitchen design, making the countertop become in an absolute protagonist of kitchen design.

On the other hand, this trend is common sense, since the new or classic materials used to manufacture quality countertops such as quartz, marble, ultra-compact or natural stone, among others, have a natural beauty that end ends up standing out. So why not take advantage of this advantage and create contrast with the furniture, making our countertop stand out even more?

Combination of various materials

If we look back, say 10 years, and see most of the kitchens we know, almost all of them are designed with the same material, right?

Some are white, all white; others are made of wood, all wood; others are lacquered, all lacquered; etc.

Today the same integral finish to the entire kitchen has given way to a greater variety, and the combination of different materials has become a trend.

This results in a kitchen that is richer in details, with more personality and much more personalized.

Wood, stone, ceramics, or different metals are the most used; Considering its many possible varieties, today's kitchens have an aesthetic versatility like never before.

There are more trends and news, but these that I have compiled are some of the most important, the most stable and the ones that we are going to get tired (or not) of seeing. They have come to stay. What do you think? I read you in the comments.
