Interior designers told BI that spring is a great time to incorporate color into the home.

According to Donna Fedor-Brann, owner of Donna Brann Interiors, saturated, bright colors and muted-pastel hues are some of this spring's hottest kitchen trends. She also expects to see more texture on cabinet faces and tile backsplashes.

Robin Burrill, CEO and interior designer at Signature Home Services, believes color will be popular in appliances as well. She expects to see a rise in brass, copper, rose-gold, nickel, and black-stainless-steel finishes.

Sustainable materials and equipment are on the rise.

Eco-conscious kitchen designs are expected to remain on-trend as more people get composting systems, energy-efficient appliances, and high-quality food-preservation equipment.

Anna Gibson, founder and lead designer at AKG Design Studio, said designers might incorporate natural and recycled materials through wood paneling, stone, or recycled countertops.

Kitchen devices designed to minimize clutter and reduce the need for multiple appliances are becoming increasingly popular.

Lisa Peck, owner and principal designer of LiLu Interiors, said people are interested in innovative products with multiple functions. Examples include ranges with air-frying, sous-vide, and griddle functions, under-counter chargers, and faucets that deliver filtered, boiling, and sparkling water.

People are embracing a modern take on traditional designs.

Traditional designs are also making a resurgence in kitchens.

"Traditional is coming back in a big way, but with new finishes, textures, and elevated looks," said Burrill.

She expects people to move away from ultramodern designs in favor of traditional elements, like custom molding and intricate drawer handles.

White may be a safe color choice, but interior designers said people are opting for more pops of color.

"All-white kitchens are definitely out, and that includes white-and-gray marble," Peck said.

Burrill also believes we'll see a shift from white-and-gray finishes to stone and metallic materials.

Stainless steel has been a front-running finish for years, but interior designers believe it's on its way out.

Burrill, who said she was never a fan of stainless steel due to fingerprint visibility and cleaning issues, plans to embrace more colorful alternatives and black-glass appliances.

According to Peck, stainless steel is losing ground because "it is now a standard classic look, and not on trend."

Many modern kitchens focus on clean, simple designs, but Burrill said unadorned looks are giving way to detailed, personality-filled spaces.

According to the expert, people are moving toward choices that create an overall design aesthetic and emphasize individuality.
