All-white kitchens are clean and timeless, but some homeowners today want to mix it up.
The Baltimore Sun reports that kitchen design trends include mismatched cabinets, unique veneers, mixed materials, chandeliers, and eye-catching color schemes.
The Sun detailed how interior designer Jeanine Turner, of Turner Design Firm, created a kitchen for local homeowner Nancy Wodka.
Adhering to the brown and white palette that appealed to Wodka, Turner’s design mixes maple cabinets with a chocolate stain, cabinets in a glossy white paint and counters that are a mix of granite and Q-stone, a quartz-based engineered stone. The wood laminate floor from the main level is carried into the kitchen to create a uniform, open space. “You can do a lot with wild colors and materials as long as you keep them in balance and you only feature one star in the room,” Turner says.
