2014 Kitchen Design Trends Identified

December 09, 2013

Zillow Digs recently announced the top kitchen remodeling trends expected for 2014. According to a recent survey, kitchens featuring black countertops, open shelves or glass-front cabinets and darker paint tones will all be popular with homeowners in the coming year.

The Zillow Digs Home Design Trend Report is based on the most popular kitchen photos on Zillow Digs, where homeowners can browse more than 130,000 pictures of interiors and exteriors. The report depends on homeowners to identify trends and includes a survey of members of the Zillow Digs Board of Designers.

The top kitchen trends for 2014 include:

Black kitchen counters: Homeowners who want to add sophistication to their kitchen can achieve this look by specifying black granite and quartz. Expect to see black-countered kitchens paired with lighter colors for contrast.

Open shelves and glass-front cabinets: Displaying kitchenwares is a growing trend, among all kitchen types not just contemporary and traditional farmhouse kitchens. "As the kitchen has become a central meeting place for family and friends, presentation has become a priority for many homeowners,” said Kerrie Kelly of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab and Zillow Digs Board of Designers member. “It is now fashionable to display almost everything in the kitchen from dishes to pots and pans to gourmet oils and vinegars."

Darker paint tones: Homeowners identified black, deep brown, dark red and copper tones as some of the most popular paint colors. Since dark colors may make a space feel smaller, designers recommend painting just one wall a deep shade or consider painting the ceiling or floor.
