Is your kitchen ready for another season of back-to-school meal planning and holiday dinners? If not, we might have just the thing.

Whether you’re looking to upgrade a backsplash, your countertops, or just add some chic new seating, this list has you covered.

Here are our top five favorite kitchen looks that are seriously trending right now:

1. Glass cabinets

If you’re looking to make your kitchen feel more open, then these glass cabinets might be just the thing.

Glass cabinetry has become a popular choice in new home construction, because of its intrinsic aesthetic appeal that resonates with most modern designs.

Plus, the transparency of the glass gives the appearance of a larger space that wouldn’t be achieved with closed cabinetry.

2. Slate countertops

Dark-gray cabinets are quite the thing lately, and it turns out that slate countertops can really elevate a kitchen design, too. 

Slate countertops are simply a delicious option in a kitchen.

They are timeless, authentic, and organic. This material is soft, smooth, and cool to touch. It provides a wonderful sensory experience and almost begs us to slow down and enjoy them.

3. Gradient backsplash

Looking for a way to artfully upgrade your kitchen? 

A gradient backsplash is a unique way to add color to what would otherwise be a conventional design.

Gradient transitions allow for either a subtle movement between similar hues or a more striking movement connecting vastly different color palettes—we use them to add distinct personality to projects.

4. Contemporary cushioned barstools

A kitchen island or bar is never complete without a few barstools, and these contemporary cushioned ones are bringing serious doses of both comfort and class.

In kitchens, we’re really designing spaces to feel less utilitarian and more a true extension of the rest of our home.

Of course, we ensure all the function is there, but also add in elements that feel softer and more feminine, and that will carry style throughout the home. After all, the kitchen is a gathering space and should invite conversation—not just cooking!

5. Glass globe pendants

To add some modern farmhouse flair to your kitchen, look no further than these rustic glass globe pendants.

Glass globe pendants are seeing a resurgence in design spaces, due to their versatility and clean aesthetic.

The globe design is timeless, because this lighting trend lends itself to both urban and classic designs, and its adaptability resides in its ability to be utilized as flush mounts, singular pendants or even in groups, as large statement pieces.
