Are you waiting for some kitchen decor trends? Take your time. Research in the design shows that fads often reveal their age. A home trend that reemerges is different from its predecessors. Here are seven ways to update your outdated kitchen design if it has been frozen in the past.
They want their kitchen back, the ’80s said.
It is hard to believe that the neon age existed a generation ago. Simpler textures and neutral colors replace the past’s vibrant, fun-loving, and colorful designs. This could be due to maturing tastes or a desire for simplicity and harmony in our lives, homes, and environments.
Quirky appliances no more
You want to keep all almond, avocado, or textured appliances that are still in working order in your kitchen.
You can transform your kitchen by changing it with beautiful cabinet refacing. Entirely integrated appliances create a seamless appearance that blends with your cabinetry.
Snoring walls and borders
Sponge-painted borders and walls are the best way to scream the 80s. You can also use outdated wallpaper trims. You can update any space’s look with new, painted color palettes, such as the 2022 color of the Year Green Fog by Sherwin Williams.
There are many oak and pine cabinets to choose from
Are you looking for a more relaxed species of wood to make your cabinets? This could mean that your kitchen has heavy oak cabinets, knotty pins, or clunky cathedral appearances. You don’t have to live in the 80s anymore! Cabinet refacing can help you get rid of them.
Refacing can transform your existing cabinet boxes. Cabinet doors and drawers make up eighty percent of kitchen materials. Homeowners are thrilled to see lighter colors when dark and dreary cabinets are made new. Replacing doors and drawers and laminating cabinets can make a huge difference in a room’s appearance.
Antiquated hardware from yore
It’s time for new sleek hardware options if your kitchen cabinets still have brass, antique, or exposed hinge hardware.
Kitchen Magic’s pull and knob gallery have a wide range of stylish hardware options, including brushed nickel and stainless steel. Our new hardware collection was created in collaboration with Kitchen Magic’s in-house designer and Amerock. Gunmetal and black knobs are also in fashion. These gold-toned finishes are the jewel of your new kitchen design.
Fussy geometric flooring to hate
Do you have the floor with geometric patterns, faux brick, or other complex designs? Linoleum was the original flooring material, but today’s flooring materials are far more advanced than that.
Replace your old, dated flooring with beautiful new vinyl plank floors. There are many options for plank flooring. But remember that the more complicated the flooring is, the bigger your kitchen will appear.
Don’t pout over grout.
To make your kitchen shine, replace the tile with quartz. It may be stuck in the eighties if your kitchen still has difficult-to-clean tiles and grout countertops. It doesn’t take a pandemic for us to see that grout and food prep areas are not a healthy marriage. The sealant will be broken down over time, leaving grout open to germs and stains. Consider quartz countertops that are durable and antimicrobial.
I am not a fan of the fans.
You can replace large, bulky ceiling fans with slim pendant designs. Clear glass, pendant lights, and lanterns add a lot to the kitchen’s design. Although a fan is a valuable item that lowers the temperature of a heated kitchen, it can also distract the design. Consider other options, such as exhaust fans or windows, to let fresh air in.
Popcorn (acoustic or stipple ceilings) are a great way to hide the damage. They were popularized in the 1980s. Homeowners prefer to cover popcorn ceilings using sheetrock rather than tedious and dusty removal.
