When it comes to home designs, it is often said that the kitchen is the ‘heart of the home’. The kitchen has been and continues to be the central place for friends and family to gather. As open living spaces surge in popularity, many designers forecast that home designs will fuse the kitchen with the living room, family room and dining room to become one open great room. The demand for open floor plans has been high for the past several years and is expected to continue to increase.
The Sater Design Collection features a large selection of pre-drawn home designs with kitchens open to the main living areas. One example of an open layout perfect for families and entertaining is our “Delvento” home plan.
The Delvento house plan boasts expansive, open casual areas. The kitchen has a large counter bar and island, with unobstructed views of the dining area and great room.
The great room opens to an enclosed Florida Room. This opens to an expansive patio with outdoor kitchen and Solana, seamlessly incorporating the indoors with the outdoors.
Home Designs and Kitchen Trends
Sometimes it is the newest and most creative finishes that make the kitchen the most popular room in the house. Here are some of our favorite kitchen and home design trends for 2016:
Natural Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood floors will always be popular and will likely remain so, but new colors and natural finishes are currently taking the spotlight.
New Storage Options
From under counter slide out drawers to creative storage in kitchen islands, getting the most out of your space is what is hot now.
Soft White or Light Gray Color Tones
You can never go wrong with a white kitchen, but gray is the new “in” color for painted cabinets.
A beautiful alternative to marble and granite, it comes in a variety of colors and also withstands high temperatures.
