Trendy & Timeless

It's the gathering spot for many busy families and as such, the design of kitchens in the home is always evolving.

Kitchen cabinetry

Improving storage systems

Another important trend in kitchen design is providing personalized storage solutions. One family may have fine stemware and china, while another has every type of bakeware you could imagine. Modern kitchen design is trending toward flexible semi-customizable options that meet the needs of the family the kitchen serves.

One increasing popular solution is the roll-out pantry that provides easy visibility of pantry items. No more stacks of cans three and four deep.

Integrated appliances

The trend is toward integrating appliances into the cabinetry of the home. Manufacturers such as Sub-Zero specialize in integrated refrigerator and refrigerator/freezer designs that use custom cabinet faces. Dishwashers are also trending toward furniture looks, so that the design of your kitchen is the focal point, not the appliances.
