Tweaking the Old Trends – 5 Top Kitchen Design Trends for 2014 That Play on Old Styles

In 2014 there will be several new kitchen designs that are a play on some of the popular styles of the past. Older but still popular variations of Gilbert cabinets and countertops as well as flooring will continue to be used in modern 2014 kitchen designs, along with the trends below:

1.)   Eco friendly Gilbert cabinets and countertops will continue to be in demand

For 2014, eco-friendly Gilbert cabinets and countertops will continue to a trend as they have been in recent years. Gilbert cabinets and countertops will continue to be composed of renewable materials such as sustainable local woods, recycled metal, and fiberboard. Also, Gilbert cabinets and countertops will continue to be constructed with nontoxic materials and finishes.

2.)   Open kitchens will continue to be popular in 2014

The “open” kitchen design will continue to be in demand, where the kitchen is not a separate room but connected to the rest of the home with minimal walls and Gilbert cabinets and countertops and flooring that match the living room and other connected rooms. The open concept showed up in homes about 25 years ago and it will continue to be a popular design concept in 2014.

3.)   Modest kitchens will be popular in 2014

In 2013 many kitchen designs were industrial and modern, while in 2014 the trend may shift to a more traditional and modest look. Earth tones will be popular choices for Gilbert cabinets and countertops, and more traditional materials will likely make their way back for Gilbert cabinets and countertops and flooring.

4.)   Some kitchens will downsize or add space

Not every home has enough space for a large kitchen, so some 2014 kitchen designs will involve downsizing the space, or increasing current storage space with larger Gilbert cabinets and countertops. Urban kitchens will continue to make the best use of their Gilbert cabinets and countertops with additional shelving and storage.

5.)   Traditional color schemes may make their way back

Traditional color schemes that were used in the 80s and 90s may make their way back into some kitchens. In 2014, some homeowners will want to bring back the individuality and unique color schemes that defined kitchen designs in the 90s.
