10 New Kitchen and Bath Trends

Enjoy keeping up with the latest trends in kitchen and bath design? Here are the most popular new designs from the National Kitchen & Bath Association.

  • Concealed kitchens - Concealing appliances enhances the kitchen’s ability to be a primary living and entertainment venue. Clean lines and sleek colors create a unique identity without overpowering nearby rooms.
  • Beverage stations - This area usually includes an undercounter refrigerator, wine cooler and coffee maker.
  • Scaling of elements - Shapes, textures and fixtures are used to create scale. Whether it’s a marbled surface in tile, a tin ceiling or metallic material, it can be used to direct the eye around the room and create a balanced space.
  • Bold colors - Look for splashes of bold color—particularly rich blues, purples, greens and yellows.
  • Soft geometry - Rounded shapes on countertops, light fixtures and soffits help smooth traffic patterns and soften features.
  • New use of space - Fixtures such as floating vanities and wall-mounted toilets remove obstructions and make baths feel spacious.
  • Framing - A simple detail such as a soffit along the ceiling or blank wall space surrounding inset cabinets can set off and emphasize elements while creating a focal point.
  • Varying heights - Islands, countertops and walls are being customized to homeowner needs. Varying heights are not only functional but also create balance.
  • Japanese influences - Look for clean lines, open spaces and neutral colors with bold splashes of color. Japanese artwork and antiques are becoming popular as well.
  • Art integration - Kitchens and baths are being personalized with paintings and sculptures.
