In a recent Realtor Magazine article,  Melissa Dittmann Tracey discloses two new hot trends in kitchen design according to the 2016 Design Trends Survey from the National Kitchen & Bath Association. Traditional and contemporary styles remain the most popular choices in kitchen design, but according to the survey, Industrial and Farmhouse are the two new popular trends.

Neutral colors continue to be the dominant color scheme, with whites and off-whites, grays and beiges being the most popular by far. Sixty percent of survey respondents report utilizing two or more colors within a kitchen space, a trend that has been growing since 2015. The two-tone trend is also growing more popular within kitchen cabinetry.
