Kitchen trends is not one of those things that can be done every year. Kitchen is an expensive space of the house. Change everything every year to keep up with the trends would be tremendously expensive.

However if your kitchen is a little bit outdated now, and you need to change some things, “Home Design Ideas” will reveal to you some kitchen trends for 2014.

Open shelving

Having closed cabinets in your kitchen was a common and trendy style, but in 2014 that will change. Builders and interior designers are pushing for the open shelving option. Why? Because is becoming fashionable to have everything on display, from dishes to pots and pans to gourmet oils and vinegars.

If you don’t like this kind of presentation the alternative is to have glass cabinets. That way you still can have items displayed and the traditional organization.

Important tips: make sure that your kitchenware matches your kitchen style and choose one or two materials for your new shelving.
