Spring 2013 kitchen trends are all about sleek, minimal kitchen design. Integrated kitchens, or kitchens that blend into their surrounding rooms, are on the rise. The crème de la crème of this contemporary style kitchen is one that seamlessly incorporates the kitchen into the surrounding rooms with no walls or barriers to divide up the space. One great way to flawlessly blend rooms is using recessed kitchen lighting to eliminate excessive design features that become obstructions.
Recessed kitchen lighting flush with the ceiling is the best way to achieve the über sleek modern look. A true minimalist approach to interior design eliminates all unnecessary objects and superfluous design details.
To keep the room from looking two dimensional and flat, recessed under cabinet lights can add depth to the kitchen lighting design and highlight work areas that require additional lighting for tasks as well.
One of our favorite examples of modern kitchen design is a trend within a trend. We’ve noticed a rise in sleek and modern kitchens taking the minimalist design aesthetic one step further and eliminating all unnecessary colors as well in the all-white kitchen trend.
