Top Five Kitchen Trends in 2013

At Viking we like to keep up with the latest trends in Kitchen design. We work closely with our clients as well as Architect’s and Designer’s to come up with cutting edge kitchen layouts. Here are some of the trends in color, craft and design that we have seen so far in 2013.

#1. Grey is the new neutral. Move over white! Grey is the new neutral in town. We have recently completed kitchens in different shades of grey and “greige”.

#2. Space saving solutions:  Smart space saving solutions are changing the ways cabinet doors and drawers function. These easy-close doors fold up and out of the way with the touch of a button or a soft close hinge.

#3.  Kitchen sinks with accessories. Sinks have come a long way. Today’s sinks are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, and can include a wide range of accessories, including cutting boards, utensil trays, drying racks and colanders.

#4. Customized Kitchen Drawers. Cabinets and Drawers now feature custom storage options.

#5. Island Shapes. Instead of a standard rectangular island, try a pentagon or oval. Altering the island shape creates interest and drama in the kitchen.
