2. The ‘Handleless Door’ Trend
Cabinets without handles are coming into play this year. With an emphasis on a linear and sleek look, people are increasingly ditching the handles and going for a push-to-open, or pull-to-open feature. This style is plain, sleek, and minimalist. Pairing this look with neutral tones is very on trend this year, we expect to see much more of this trend in 2017! Send us a message to learn more about Westridge’s handleless options.
3. The ‘Clutter-Free Countertop’ Trend
Clutter is never welcome in a busy kitchen, so this year clutter-free countertops are making a statement. This minimalistic look opens up the space in your kitchen, and allows for more room for your family to gather. This trend is especially popular with smaller kitchens as the open counter space makes the kitchen seem larger.
