Country Farmhouse Kitchen Trends 

Many consumers want a warm, inviting, country-style kitchen. These kinds of cozy kitchen trends remain very popular. Creating a kitchen with touches of country flair, like weathered pieces made with reclaimed wood, is a hot trend.

Designers are creating country-style kitchens with modern efficiency combined with a homespun flair. They are the perfect place to show off rustic decorations and give your family and friends a feeling of home-style comfort. Some popular touches are farmhouse sinks and butcher block islands.

Open kitchen shelves is one of our favorite kitchen trends. Open shelves allow homeowners to showcase their favorite decorative pictures, heirlooms, and other pieces. At the same time, having more open shelves and fewer enclosed cabinets gives a feeling of open space. 

On a more practical level, open shelving gives you the ability to see your kitchen items, so you don’t have to search for them in cabinets.

Open shelves work well with cozy country kitchens and with sleek, modern kitchens. They give you more room for creative touches to emphasize your design aesthetic.

Quartz Countertop Trends 

One of the most highly sought after kitchen trends is countertops.

Quartz has a number of advantages. First, it is extremely durable and can last longer than your house. Second, quartz is naturally anti-microbial. Finally, quartz is easier to maintain than granite. Quartz provides these advantages and is easier to maintain than granite.

For a time, the knock against quartz compared with granite was a lack of variety in colors and finishes. However, manufacturers have quickly caught up and now provide a wide variety of choices for designers and homeowners.

Quartz is available in a wide range of colors. New finishes give quartz surfaces the look of marble or natural stone. Manufacturers are also able to provide softer and more neutral colors. 

Importantly, quartz manufacturers can create kitchen sinks using the same material as the countertop. This option can give your kitchen a distinctively clean and sleek style.
