Now and in the future, your clients may look to you to design clean, simple and minimalist kitchens. This is according to the annual Design Trends Survey released by The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA).
NKBA expects: “More contemporary kitchens, with clean, minimal lines and little ornamentation, along with universal design amenities and easy-maintenance features.”
The Millennial Generation or Generation Y, which are often described as those born between the mid 1980s and the 2000s, will greatly influence home design trends in the future, including luxury designs. This generation values simple, clutter-free environments.
Among millennial-friendly styles cited by Realtor magazine are urban and with fewer embellishments, technologically efficient, open and multifunctional spaces, and the industrial vibe.
This course describes how kitchen styles have changed over the past 50 years and what demographic, cultural and social influences have brought us to this point. Based on insights from practicing kitchen designers, we look at the elements that make up a minimalist kitchen, including layout, styles, finishes and appliances.
