2016 kitchen design trends to elevate the hub of your home

The hottest looks you’ll be coveting for your kitchen this year.


The kitchen isn’t just about cooking anymore – it’s the hub of the home, the place where you gather with family and to share coffee with a friend. This year’s design trends reflect the evolution of the kitchen into a living space, with trends that add interest and create a more inviting space to entertain.



From geometric patterned backsplashes to bold hits of colour and loads of raw texture, the kitchens of 2016 are a far cry from the classic all-white standard. Read on for this year’s hottest kitchen design trends and grab some inspiration for your next home makeover.

2016 kitchen design trends to elevate the hub of your home

1 Neutral base with pops of colour

White and neutral kitchens will always be on trend, but in 2016, we’re seeing them juxtaposed against a bold pop of colour. Bring some flavour to a neutral palette with vibrant pendant lamps, saturated backsplashes or even retro pastel-hued appliances.

2 Geometric patterns

The kitchen trends for 2016 are all about having fun, and geometric patterns are popping up in kitchens everywhere this year. Add a punch of interest to your kitchen with an accent wall in a geometric paper or hexagonal backsplash like the kitchen shown here. Alternatively, have fun with your kitchen flooring and lay down geometric shaped tiles or patterned hardwood.

3 Thin countertops

Butcher block slabs and thick marble are taking a backseat to this year’s hottest countertop trend. Modern kitchens are taking on a new look for 2016 with thin countertops that blend into the cabinetry for a sleek, seamless look. Tour this home here.

4 Texture

If there’s one room in the house that lacks texture, it’s the kitchen. Where other living spaces incorporate luxe fabrics and cosy accessories, the kitchen is usually a streamlined, functional space – but not anymore. In 2016, texture is big in the kitchen, from raw wood cabinets to rough stone surfaces and unpolished backsplashes. Tour this kitchen here.

5 Grey cabinetry

Though white cabinets still remain a crowd favourite for the kitchen, we’re seeing more grey cabinetry for 2016, building on the blossoming trend from last year. This year, however, the greys we’re seeing are lighter, softer and mixed in with other neutrals, like the putty grey island here that’s paired with surrounding white cabinets. Tour this home here.
