Backsplashes-The patterned backsplash is currently trending. You can use it solely for your backsplash or as a focal point above your countertops in one area of the wall. However you choose to use it, you will be on trend! Equally suitable for the trendy kitchen is white subway tile. Can’t beat a classic!

Countertops-There are so many types of countertops to choose from. For its beauty, durability, and no maintenance, quartz is gaining popularity. But then, granite continues to be a front runner. With so many patterns and colors to choose from, you really can’t go wrong with either of these two materials. For warmth and a natural vibe, butcher block has found a real following, too.

Cabinets-When it comes to cabinets, shaker-style cabinets are on trend. They are timeless. You will not be disappointed. To add more diversity and style, you can use two different stains or colors for your cabinets. For example, the island cabinets can be a different color from the rest of the cabinets in the kitchen.
