When it comes to kitchens, some features are classic and unchanging, but colors, appliances and kitchen design are bursting with creative choices. Here are some of the top trending kitchen ideas from our LCT Team of experts.

Color – Trending In Kitchens

Colors in the kitchen are changing. Antique brass and satin nickel seem to be making a come back in the hardware. These tones can make your home feel cozy or modern depending on how you pair them. Gray-toned hard woods are also a big hit in kitchens at the moment, according to LCT Team Realtor Michelle Arnold, recently quoted in Greater Nashville House & Home magazine.

“Also popular for kitchens are clean white cabinets and creative herringbone or subway tile backsplashes, especially in the farmhouse style kitchens,” Michelle said.

Appliance Updates

In the appliance world, LCT Team Realtor Vickie Freas has seen a change in refrigerators and the locations of microwaves.

“Appliances continue to offer many of the same great features.  One of the trends I’ve seen is refrigerators having a freezer drawer on the bottom instead of the top and microwaves being built into bottom cabinets. I think we’ll see much more of the microwave drawer as islands keep increasing in size.”

Open Kitchen Floor Plans

Open concepts in the kitchen and living area have been around for a few years and we don’t see them going anywhere any time soon.

Don’t miss out on time with your loved ones being stuck in the kitchen. The open kitchen floor plan at 6852 Pulltight Road available in College Grove has the perfect set up.

“I think the open kitchen is with us for the foreseeable future. People love an open concept and being able to see into the family room, it really gives people a sense of togetherness,” Michelle said.
