New trends are constantly changing in the kitchen design world as both homeowners and designers introduce new technology, materials and colors to their design palette. When it comes to planning a kitchen upgrade, be it a cozy or glamorous style, the latest trends in décor are a major consideration. The last thing you want is a kitchen that is outdated, which is why we have listed three kitchen trends for you to avoid, as they have outlived their time.
The hanging pot racks that you see in some kitchens, often above the kitchen island, are an outdated trend that should be avoided. Once considered the “in thing” because of the impression of a “chef’s kitchen”, it lost its visual appeal after a while, ending up looking messy and cluttered. The space above your kitchen island would be far better utilized with a stylish light fixture instead.
Why go to all the trouble and cost to invest in cabinets that already look old and outdated, and really don’t suit the clean, sleek and minimal look of most of the latest kitchen designs. Instead go for any solid color of your choice and give the outdated distressed cabinet trend a miss.
If a rustic style is the look you are keen on, there are other ways to create it. Rather than investing in outdated cabinet styles, a rustic décor that is classy and elegant is a far better option.
A popular trend in the past was to have every countertop tiled. They were less expensive than any other material available at that time and also provided unique choices for anyone looking for something different. Unfortunately homeowners soon learned their mistake as tiles are very difficult to clean and maintain and are just not worth the effort.
When it comes to designing your kitchen be sure to know what to avoid and also be sure to keep up with the latest trends. Not only are these trends outdated, many of them are also not practical, and you may find you have a bigger headache than you ever bargained for.
