Ornate Hardware

Muted minimalistic hardware is about to replace shiny ornate handles. Also, now kitchen design is headed towards simple cabinets with no hardware at all.

Navy Cabinets

Even such a classic color as navy can become overused and boring. There are lots of other versatile colors that can make your kitchen design more interesting. Try green, black, or natural wood tones.

Basic Tile Backsplashes

If you really want to use tiles for your backsplash, try experimenting with shapes and colors to make the design less plain.

Open Shelving

Open shelving is quite an impractical way of storing glasses and dishes. Even if you use them frequently, they still accumulate dirt. But if you really like the trend, try using it for decorative accessories instead of dishes.

Cool Gray Paints

Today when renovating a kitchen those in doubt always choose a cool gray color for the walls or cabinets. It’s become so common that now this versatile shade became outdated. Want something neutral? Maybe it’s time to try a warmer gray?

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
