2016 Fall Trends for Your Kitchen

2016 Fall Trends for Your Kitchen

Looking to update your kitchen this fall? There are a lot of fall trends in the works for 2016 – read below for more details:

1. Low-key tones
While autumn is normally associated with bright reds and oranges, Houzz predicts this fall many homeowners will be opting for more delicate colors. Charcoal, grey and even pale pastels are excellent choices for your kitchen’s surfaces and custom cabinetry.

2. Lighter woods
Falling in line with the muted theme this fall, Houzz also stated that lighter wood species will become a favorite for homeowners. If you do decide to go with a softer color palette, consider adding natural light into the design to lighten up the space even more.

3. Different textures
Gone are the days when color schemes needed to match, especially in the kitchen. Forbes says that contrasting textures will become more and more popular this fall. For instance, using subtle changes in your backsplash from wall to wall will keep the overall design fresh and interesting.

4. A nod to midcentury mod
 The trend of midcentury modern furniture will trickle down to kitchens. Look for more kitchen styles that offer a nod to ’60s modern style. You can get in on this minimalist movement by choosing predominantly white color palettes, designing with light wood textures and clearing away unnecessary clutter.

5. Integrated kitchen-living spaces
Maybe your kitchen feels disconnected from the rest of your home. Maybe you want your cooking space to feel more accommodating. Either way, this trend could be for you. Anticipate more streamlined kitchen designs in which the kitchen converges with the home’s primary living space.
