One of the greatest aspects of social media is the ability to exchange ideas in a shared common space. It helps artists, designers and even those not directly involved in the creative field, get inspired. Sites like Tumblr and Pinterest both serve as an open sourced forum for exchanging tools–an exploratory space of visuals, How To’s, artistry, and thoughts.
As a real estate agency who specializing in short term accommodations and restoration, we often look to Pinterest in particular to check in on what others are doing creatively. (If you haven’t already, follow our Pinterest company page here). It’s an amazing way to get painting and decorating tips.
So without further ado, here are five of our favorite trends happening in the kitchen.
5. Space-Saving Storage
This trend has been around for a while now, but there are some really innovative ways for kitchen storage and organization. Personally, we like the idea of separating produce with refrigerated drawers. And the sliding cabinets for under-the-sink products is a winner as well.
4. Dish Racks
You can’t get any better than this. Not only does this design alleviate the most common complaints of using dish racks (water everywhere, and ugliness in general), but it’s organized. This design is sleek, modern, and makes perfect sense.
3. Homemade Artwork
Nothing makes a home feel like a home without bits and pieces of personality weaved into its decor. Using kitchen utensils and cutlery as artwork is a simple and easy way of doing just that.
2. Kitchen cabinet color schemes
We love color and we love kitchens (it’s the heart of the home, of course!). If you’re happy with the general layout of your kitchen, then applying a bright new color on the kitchen cabinets is probably the easiest (and most inexpensive) way to give your kitchen a facelift.
1. A play with textures
Glass doors for kitchen cabinets? Basket weaved backsplashes? Vintage door handles? A play with textures requires a lot of imagination and gusto. Color isn’t the only way to spruce up home decor.
