The kitchen has grown to be so much more than a room to prepare the families' food. With the hustle and bustle of busy schedules and juggling family activities, It's the home's central gathering place. It's also cool to cook and now cooking and entertaining go hand in hand. With television hits like "Cake Boss" "The Chew" and other shows that focus on food, people are spending much more time enjoying their time in the kitchen, especially entertaining family and friends. Kitchen decor trends have also changed to meet the needs of this 21st-century family. Here are 3 trends that are "cooking up" all across America.
1. Open Kitchen Spaces: Gone are the days when a kitchen only had room for the appliances, some countertop space, and a chair or two. Today's kitchen features a wide open living space featuring enough space for that and much more. Today's kitchens feature wide open sitting areas, countertop seating areas, dining room tables and a "welcome everyone" floor plan designed for entertaining.
2. Designer Styled: Since today's open air kitchen welcomes everyone and everyone can see it from other areas of the home, the countertops, kitchen cabinets, sink, back splashes and even what covers the floor has taken on a personalized designer style. Look for custom made woodwork, high-end fixtures, and hardwood floors and ceramic tile to enhance the space.
3. Vintage Accents: Today's families are treasuring things from past generations. Grandma's cookware, cookbooks, scales, and dinnerware are used as decor throughout the kitchen. Everything old is new again when it comes to stylish accents. Even treasures found at estate sales, thrift shops, and second-hand stores are incorporated into the decor to add a piece of the past to today's space.
