2016 Home Design Trends

At Alliance, we’re all about staying current and staying stylish–affordably, efficiently, and expertly.  Here, we want to lay out for you some design trends that we’ve noticed in 2016 that may stick around for a while, and could inspire the design of your own home.

Two-Toned Kitchen Cabinets

Though traditional kitchens feature cabinets all of the same color and tone of that color, 2016 has seen a departure from that mundanity.  A single-toned kitchen is classic, elegant, and simple, so if that’s the look that you’re trying to achieve, you may want to stay away from two-toned cabinets.  Two-toned cabinets are fun, interesting, and fairly uncommon.  The number of options and combinations you have increase exponentially when you’re using two-tones, which means your chances of creating a kitchen that no one else has ever created go through the roof.

Islands

We know, kitchen islands are nothing new.  However, what are starting to pop up more frequently are what are known as workhorse islands.  Workhorse islands essentially refer to islands that exist for much more than counter space.  Workhorse islands can feature seating (such as high-boys and bar stools), storage (such as cabinets or a hollow bottom), and utilities (such as stove-tops and deep sinks).  These islands are not only useful, but also make your kitchen feel like more apart of your house as a whole.

Openness

In a sense, this goes along with the idea of installing workhorse islands, but it also refers to the idea that your kitchen, and the elements of it that define it as such, are beautiful all on their own.  This means hanging pots, open shelves, glass cabinets, see-through refrigerator doors (yes they exist!)…the list goes on.  This openness follows the philosophy that your food and the tools used to prepare it are aesthetically pleasing, and part of what makes your home your own.

To implement any of these ideas into the design of your home, or anything else you may want to incorporate, contact Alliance Home Design today!
