Authors: Kitchen Design Online
Though some interior design trends come and go, other style elements become instant classics. Take stainless steel, as one example. Often associated with commercial kitchens, neutral in terms of color and aesthetic, stainless appliances and counters now work in almost any application. Other kitchen fashions last only a short time or are quickly deemed impractical. So what are the current hot items to have, what’s on the way out, and what is here to stay?
One appliance must-have right now is a built-in or integrated refrigerator in high-end kitchens. Many manufacturers make them, and you have the option of wood panels to blend with surrounding cabinetry to make the fridge look like a piece of furniture, or you can buy them in stainless steel to be a shining accent in your kitchen. Also trendy are old-fashioned style refrigerators put in traditional and/or whimsical kitchens, or installed in contemporary spaces to add visual interest. These refrigerators are great when they’re paired with an old-fashioned style range like an Aga, La Cornue, or Bertazzoni, all of which come in fun colors to match the refrigerator.
