If you like a contemporary style, amp up the drama by painting your cabinets in a dark matte finish, even a matte black. This sounds like it may make a room look small, but when it’s contrasted with a light natural floor, bright area rug, backsplash or elegant pendant lights, it strikes the perfect balance.

If you have a farmhouse or industrial vibe in your kitchen, chances are you’re looking at incorporating open shelving into your space. While storage used to be hidden, it’s now stylish to put it on display. We love that you can switch up the arrangement and accessories as you wish, and don’t need to worry about items being too large to fit into cabinet space.
Do: Switch up the décor on your shelves from season to season.
Don’t: Clutter the shelves too much. Neat stacks and simple accessories will serve you well.

Biophilia, or bringing the outdoors in, has been trending for a while now, and it isn’t going anywhere soon. If your kitchen receives a lot of natural light, incorporate plants into your décor. You could build planters into the walls in areas that gets a lot of sunshine, style plants on your open shelves or grow your own herb garden indoors. Added bonus: Your kitchen will smell amazing!
