Focusing On Organic & Natural Elements
According to the NKBA Design Trends, the organic, natural look is now the third most popular kitchen and bath design style. That aesthetic rose up from the ninth spot in 2020. Only contemporary and transitional styles ranked higher.
What Is Natural Design?
The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) describes organic/natural design as “clean lines, minimal detailing, the warmth and texture of natural finishes, and larger windows to bring the feeling of outdoors inside.”
An overall design shift from formal to casual continues to gain traction. Modern day dresses in life are leading homeowners to crave a relaxed, uncluttered style more than ever. Plus, people feel inspired and at peace when they connect with nature.
How Do You Incorporate This Kitchen Trend?
Follow these tips to create an organic/natural kitchen design with KraftMaid® cabinets:
Work in “pops” of wood through cabinetry, ceiling beams, and shelving.
Choose light and mid-tone wood stains. Krafmaid offers Praline, Barley and Husk.
Use clean lines and simple door profiles. Not only are they modern, they are easy to clean.
Pick one or two places to use matte surfaces. Think Suede topcoat and honed granite.
Bring the outdoors in with house plants. Go vertical with a green living wall, or hanging plants.
Maximize natural light and exterior views. Consider larger replacement windows or sliding doors.
