This design also makes great use of added shelving on the fold-out doors themselves. When looking at fold-away kitchen storage, ideally no space should go unused. In the same vein, shelving is also well placed around the microwave itself.
When choosing your colorful grout, don’t feel limited to standard paint colors. The shiny gold grout in the photo above demonstrates how well metallic shades work in a bathroom. This style stands out when matching the grout to bathroom fixtures. To make the metallic grout pop, aim for a light or muted shade of tile. Metallic grout doesn’t have the colorful intensity of the other neon shades above, so it needs to be paired with shades that won’t compete for visual attention. With so many shades of colorful grout out there, and so many ways of incorporating it, options are endless. Will you pair dark grout with light tile? Neon grout with dark tile? Metallic grout with floor tile? However you’d like to use colorful grout, we’d love to hear about it below.
One of the fastest ways to give a spec kitchen new style is to swap out the standard ceiling fixture for something with a little more personality. A flush-mount fixture with decorative details — like this drum light with geometric cutouts — is a dramatic addition that only requires a few twists of a screwdriver. If you kitchen has an island or breakfast bar, consider hanging pendant lights above it. Pendant lighting not only adds style to the space, it can also help anchor a kitchen island so it feels more deliberate in an open-concept home.
Integrated sinks have been very popular for Corian with stainless steel in-conjunction with concrete countertops. Their availability from manufacturers also not just a few experimental fabricators also is new with exciting or likely to be a popular trend this year.
I expect integrated ”drainboards” to be a hot trend this year too. They would likely be smaller in size than this dramatic replica Blanco showed us at a Living Kitchen exhibit in Cologne last year. Most of the fixtures producer at the show featured united drainboards and a few have started to offer them in the U.S. market.
