An Eye for Kitchen Design & Functionality

Looking for design inspiration for your kitchen? Build Magazine partners with some of the country’s top designers to feature the latest modern design trends for every area of the home, including the kitchen. Take a look at some of the trends grabbing our attention this season:

Modern Farmhouse Chic

Affinity KitchensScottsdale, AZ

Sleek and understated, this version of a modern farmhouse as seen in this Scottsdale kitchen features all the amenities you could need. The two-tone cabinets accentuates this room in all the right ways and the charm of exposed beams adds the perfect finishing touch.

Cerused wood – a finishing technique that emphasizes the natural grain of the wood – adds an additional touch of sophistication to the wood-heavy modern farmhouse design.

Gold, Silver, & Brass Accents

The addition of metallic accents on the stove hood (below) and these ornate geometric light fixtures help tie together this simple white and grey kitchen design.

Gold and brass accents aren’t limited to simple kitchens or locales. The French chateau-style kitchen in Bend or Big Sky featured below boast a professional stove and oven, multiple work surfaces, and stunning gold accents.

Open Concept Kitchens

Open floor plans are beneficial for a myriad of reasons. They are fantastic for entertaining and double as the perfect way to watch children while making dinner. The stunning black and marble kitchen below features a colossal island, a plethora of windows allowing generous amounts of natural light, and an open concept that leads right into the living room.

Enjoy the indoors and outdoors simultaneously with a smooth transition between the two. Another example of a stunning open concept kitchen is shown below in Okanagan. This attractive design opens up onto an outdoor patio space on one side, and an indoor living room on the other. On beautiful days, simply roll open the glass doors to let the outside in especially in warmer climates like Naples or Hawaii!

Monochromatic Design

Earthy monochromatic design isn’t just trendy – it’s timeless. Warm, honey-colored wood is a lovely and warm alternative to traditional monochromatic color schemes like black, white, and grey.

On the other end of the spectrum, striking monochromatic design uses deep black paint and accents that are set off by agile lighting design.
