So many of today’s big design trends are all about personalization of spaces. For most people, gone are the days when you had one style for your entire home that could easily be labeled as Traditional or Modern. Today’s interior design and decorating is more about a mix of styles. You may be Farmhouse with a touch of Contemporary or Traditional but with a Global or Ethnic edge. Kitchen designs should also reflect your own quirks.
Let’s look at the designs of this kitchen. This isn’t your standard builder kitchen design. In fact, most of what we can see is anything but typical. Colored cabinets in a pale blue are the foundation of this kitchen’s unique style. Having only lower cabinets opens up the space above the counter. Rod storage allows you to keep spices and cooking implements off the counter.
The counter and sink are not your standard granite and double sink. Instead this kitchen has wood countertops and a pair of round sinks. The sinks are under mounted, which is a big trend right now. The single gooseneck faucet can easily reach both sinks. Round sinks are more typical in a bathroom than in a kitchen.
The backsplash is a grid of square tiles in warm neutral beige. The color adds a bit of warmth to complement the wood of the countertop and the grid pattern feels modern. The simple square tiles are a break from traditional subway tiles or the popular mosaic tiles seen in many current kitchen designs.
