There are so many great ideas to incorporate into kitchen design these days that it was difficult to choose just five for this post!
Sticking with current kitchen trends, here are five that caught my eye:
1. Two-Tone Cabinets
This is the perfect trend for those who love painted cabinets, but want to shake things up a bit.

2. Open Shelving
Shelves in lieu of cabinets adds some uniqueness and personality, and can help open up a space, but it also requires a certain amount of consistent organization (and pretty dishes!).

3. Stained Wood + White
A variation of the two-toned cabinet trend, the play of warm stained wood against crisp white cabinets creates such beautiful contrast!
It’s also good news for those who may want a different look for a kitchen that’s currently full of stained cabinets. Paint the upper cabinets and get a whole new look.

4. Wall of Tile
Subway tile has been around for a long time and white is a popular, classic choice. For a different spin, though, kitchen designers are taking it (and other interesting statement tiles) to the ceiling. Skipping upper cabinets and/or using open shelving is a great way to show it off.

5. Marble Countertops
Marble has a classic look that works well in a variety of design styles – and no one can deny that it’s beautiful! It isn’t low maintenance or inexpensive though, so it’s not for everyone.
If you’d like the look without the maintenance, there are other options out there, such as quartz, that do a great job of mimicking marble. (Lindsey talks about some in her kitchen remodel.)
What are your favorite kitchen trends? Have you incorporated any of them into your own home?
