Kitchen Trends 2024 has layers that include texture, color and style of sorts.Layered design is one of the hottest trends that is capturing the attention and imagination of homeowners in Scottsdale. Layered kitchen design involves looking at each element in the kitchen  – cabinets, countertops,  range hoods, appliances, flooring, lighting, wall coverings, backslashes, etc. as a single layer.  Layering enables homeowners and designers to add character and personality, depth and interest to a new  kitchen.

A primary reason why so many people are attracted to a layered approach is that enables them to make a unique and personal design statement.  As the heart of the home, and a place where a lot of time is spent, the kitchen reflects their dreams, tastes and style.  Layering involves mixing textures, materials and styles.  An example may pair white shaker cabinets with a veined marble top on an island that features midnight blue cabinets.  Specifying cabinet doors that are flush to the cabinet frame, commonly referred to as inset doors, is another common approach to create a layered look. Using different types and styles of cabinet hardware is another technique to bring different textures to achieve a layered look.  

Homeowners in Scottsdale with larger spaces for kitchens also gravitate toward kitchen designs that feature different cabinet styles.  In a large space, using the same style can be overwhelming and even cold.  With open floor plan layouts, a layered approach pays particular attention to the transition from one room to another.  The success of the flow is often contingent on consistency of imagery.  Using the same metal finishes on cabinet hardware in the kitchen as lamps or end tables in the living room creates the consistency that people expect and deserve.  Consistency can also be achieved in the kitchen by matching accessories with surface materials such as pairing a large wood cutting board and wooden bowls that have the same finish as wood cabinets.

A two-tiered island is also helpful in creating a layered look because it provides the opportunity to mix and match colors, materials and textures and enhance the functionality of the space. Two-tiered island create a focal point in a new kitchen and create different work zones for preparing meals, working, eating or entertaining.  

Taking a layered approach to your new kitchen requires understanding how to maximize the use of the space to produce different layers that provide depth, character and wow.  This is where certified and experienced designers come in! Their expertise can help people to create a dream kitchen that is the envy of the neighborhood.
