Just in time for cold weather redecoration and renovation projects, we asked top interior designers from Dering Hall to share some of the latest trends that are emerging in kitchen design. From unexpected material combinations to clever seating upgrades, here are six trends that you'll be seeing in kitchens around the country.
As the heart of the home, kitchens have different lighting needs than other rooms. There's the practical matter of creating enough task lighting for people to prepare meals, but also the need to craft a welcoming, warm environment for guests to enjoy without too much fuss or formality. We asked the experts at Hudson Valley Lighting for their top tips on how to create a well lit, inviting kitchen, regardless of type of home.
The trend we are seeing is that the kitchen is the hub of the home for our clients. It’s where families gather not only to prepare meals, but where children do their homework, adults pay bills and everyone watches television and entertains.
Additional drawers in the kitchen results in more accessible storage and organization, which is a top priority for clients to be sure that each and every kitchen item has its place. And once those drawers or cabinets are opened, lights need to turn on automatically to guide the way.
