Summer Kitchen Trends – 10 Ideas and Inspirations for You
When was the last time you thought about kitchen decorating? If it’s been a while or you can’t remember, then you are overdue for an update. Your kitchen probably looks old, tired, and outdated. This summer is the perfect time to give it a refresh.
These ten kitchen decorating ideas will get you inspired to bring your kitchen into modern times.
1. Bold Cabinet Colors
White cabinets will always be one of the classic kitchen décor ideas and preferred colors for kitchen cabinets. However, it isn’t the only color people want. Bold cabinet colors are popular, especially shades of green and blue. These colors work perfectly in the kitchen because they invoke feelings of harmony, peacefulness, and wealth.
If you plan to paint all of your cabinets, then it’s smart to stick with a lighter shade of blue or green. These colors will help to keep your kitchen feeling light and bright. Darker shades can close your kitchen in. If you want to use a darker hue, try only painting the lower cabinets. Then keep your upper cabinet white. This gives you a bright and welcoming kitchen while embracing the modern trend of bold color in the kitchen.
2. Decorative Storage With Baskets
Woven baskets are perfect for your kitchen decorating because they are made out of natural materials that add texture and warmth to your kitchen. They look right at home in a rustic, farmhouse, or modern kitchen. Choose baskets of varying sizes to fit the food items you need to organize. You can have them on display when placed on open shelves or use them in your pantry for an organized storage space.
3. Showoff Your Beautiful Cookware
You don’t need to buy special decor for your kitchen decorating. Instead, use your cookware for your kitchen decor ideas. This keeps the clutter down and helps to make your most-used pieces to be readily within reach. To make this trend work in your kitchen, you’ll want to consider the style and design of your cookware. No one wants to look at worn-out and stained pieces.
The Buydeem Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven is a beautiful piece that is both functional and perfect for putting on display in your kitchen. It has an innovative no-chip enamel coating that makes it durable enough for display and non-stick for easy cleaning. You can use it on an electric, gas, or induction stove. Use this one-pot for broiling, braising, stewing, roasting, and serving.
4. Let Your Wine Be Your Kitchen Decor
If you have a decent wine collection, then use it in your kitchen décor ideas. Modern wine storage solutions say goodbye to the dark and damp basement and bring wine up into your living spaces. Put your wine bottles on display in a rack that you mount on the wall or place against the wall. If you choose a cabinet, look for one with glass doors so that you can easily see the wine inside.
Add decorative elements to your wine rack. Installing accent LED lights can turn your wine storage into a focal point in the kitchen. It can also turn it into a more inviting space that’s perfect for entertaining friends and family at home.
5. Open Shelves
When open shelving first made its way into kitchen decorating, they were large shelves that stretched the entire length of the kitchen and completely replaced the cabinets. While this look was minimal and worked well in pictures, it was impractical. In a well-used kitchen, all open shelving resulted in a cluttered kitchen where everything got dirty.
Modern open shelving trends scale back the size of the open shelves and mix them in with cabinets. This gives you more hidden storage for a more practical kitchen. You can use the open shelves for your kitchen decor ideas. Try arranging your Buydeem Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven and Ceramic Mini Cocotte on one. Or you could use the Buydeem Glass Food Containers for storing your most-used ingredients in an easily reachable location.
6. Make Your Kitchen Island Stand Out
Past kitchen decorating trends have dictated that your kitchen island should match the rest of your kitchen cabinets and counters. Modern design trends turn to more creative designs that bring life to the kitchen. Instead of having a heavy-looking solid cabinet island, you could have one that’s more open with shelves.
You could have cabinets but paint them your chosen dark blue color while leaving the cabinets along the wall white. For a bold design, change the countertop to a complimentary but different material from the counters along the wall.
7. Embrace Higher Backsplashes
Turn your backsplash into a statement piece by extending the tile further up the wall. You could tile the entire space between the countertop and the bottom of the wall cabinets. For the wall above the cooktop, continue the backsplash tile up the ceiling.
For a rustic or farmhouse look, you could use subway tile. This traditional tile will give your kitchen a beautiful vintage feel. For a modern look, opt for large slabs of marble.
The Buydeem 4-Slice Toaster is the perfect kitchen appliance for placement on your counter in front of subway tile or marble. The toaster’s vintage-inspired design harkens back to a simpler time. At the same time, its innovative technology features help it to be right at home in the sleekest of modern kitchens.
8. Tile Floors Make A Marvelous Comeback
Pattern tiles are making a comeback in kitchen decorating. You can try the trend out in your kitchen by choosing tiles with a bold geometric pattern. It could be a single color or multiple. Handmade tiles are ideal because they combine multiple trends. Their handmade construction makes them slightly irregular and textured.
Scale the size of the floor tile you choose to the size of your kitchen. If you select a tile that’s too small, your floor will look too busy, and the pattern will be overwhelming. Choose a tile that is too large, and you won’t have enough pattern, and you’ll lose the desired effect.
9. Brighten A Kitchen With Wallpaper Or Removable Decals
Bring life to your kitchen wall by applying removable wallpaper or decals. Both of these products are popular in kitchen decorating because they are simple to install and can cleanly remove when you’re ready for a change. With modern wallpaper designs, you can achieve looks that aren’t possible with paint.
Look for a large-scale mural design for a bold design. A smaller repeating pattern will give you the traditional wallpaper look. Removable decals can come in sheets. Peel each decal and arrange them on the wall. Other decals are large and require specific placement on the wall.
10. Add Multi-Function Appliances
One of the biggest trends in kitchen decorating is minimalism. This means reducing the clutter and excessive amounts of appliances. It’s time to eliminate all of the single-use kitchen appliances that you own and replace them with pieces that can perform multiple functions.
Buydeem specializes in making small kitchen appliances that can perform a wide variety of tasks. The Buydeem Kettle Cooker is a nine-in-one appliance that can do so much more than just heat water. The Buydeem All-in-One Intelligent Steamer is a five-in-one appliance that will do everything from steaming to cooking rice. The Buydeem Instant Temperature Water Boiler has eight temperature settings to help you prepare the perfect water temperature for all of your cooking needs.
