Staying on top of kitchen renovation trends and in the know about the new designs is critical to our line of work. That’s why we make it a priority to attend some of the important design events like the International Contemporary Furniture Fair and the Architectural Digest Design Show.

Kitchen Renovation Trend #3: Dark Kitchens

If white kitchens were the wave of the future, dark kitchens are the here and now. More and more we are seeing darker, moodier kitchens. They are chic, sophisticated and cozy.

If you’re lucky enough to have a substantial amount of natural light, a dark kitchen could be just what your space needs to balance it out. Nervous about jumping in to an all-black kitchen? Mix it up with darker base cabinets coupled with lighter wall cabinets, or open shelving.
