Do you even remember life before Pinterest? I can
lose spend hours of any given day looking through great recipes, craft ideas for the kids, and capsule wardrobes. What I like most about Pinterest though is how much it lets me dream about what my ‘dream bedroom’ and ‘dream kitchen’ would look like (and yes, that’s what those boards are even called). I could pin fabulous faucets until we’re out of rose all day long.
The beauty of my scrolls through Pinterest allows me to see trends and get a feel for what I’m likely going to see in magazines and my favourite home store displays. So dream with me and let’s take a look at what’s trending in kitchens and laundry on Pinterest.
1) Bold Cabinets
Boring white cabinets are starting to take a backstage to bold blues, great greens, and even black.
2) Smart Everything
From appliances to built-in speakers, the smart kitchen is a trend that is really going mainstream and isn’t just for luxury renovations anymore.
Going beyond bold, we’re also seeing lots of opportunities to mix it up (literally!) and go for two-tones.
Yes, the colour – on walls, cabinets especially, but also (big surprise) the growing trend of house plants has gained some roots in the kitchen and laundry too.
5) Multifunctional: Cook & Entertain
This trend (or is it just a way of life?) of cooking and entertaining in one big kitchen/eating space continues. We’re seeing even more stylish ways to make this big space a beautiful, cozy, functional space for both friends and family.
6) Custom Details
With DIY projects and incredible makers on ETSY more and more of us are making (or having made) amazing custom details to really make our homes more personal.
7) New Storage
With new ways of making cupboards and all the neat DIY ideas you can find on Pinterest, the new ways of thinking about kitchen storage are literally endless! We’re seeing lots of people start to incorporate these into new renos and builds.
8) Lighting Takes Centre Stage
Lighting is no longer just boring (yet functional) pot lights. We’re seeing more and more fabulous chandeliers, great pendants, and even strategically placed floor lamps and task lamps (great for stains in the laundry room!)
9) Fabulous Faucets and Sinks
Faucets are so fabulous now! With so many colours and styles to choose from, the dream kitchen possibilities really are endless.
10) Lay Like a Rug
Rugs in the kitchen are nothing new, but we’re seeing more than just boring floor mats at the sink and stove. We’re seeing bold runners and rugs light up kitchens and laundry rooms in a way we haven’t seen in a while. This warm trend is a great one!
