The kitchen, it’s often said, is the heart and soul of your home, a hub where family and friends gather to cook and eat their meals. However, renovating a kitchen is a major investment for homeowners. Because the key selling point of any home is the kitchen, it only makes sense to be careful when you choose colours and building materials. To help you with these decisions, here are five trends you will see in 2014.
 
Grey
 
Grey, a solid trend for every room in your home for a few seasons now, is once again everywhere in 2014, including in the kitchen. Different shades of grey, from lacquered and modern to stonewashed and country-style, remain popular. With a contrasting backsplash, your kitchen cabinets can only look better.
 
Glass
 
No matter how you look at it, whether we’re talking about cabinets with tempered glass or glass doors, a backsplash with glass paste or a recycled glass countertop, glass is very trendy. Its transparency and wide choice of colours and textures add up to a very desirable option that is very much in vogue.
 
Rustic wood
 
Rustic-style wood, once the domain of only cottages and country homes, can now be found in city kitchens and lofts—adding a natural touch to their decor.
 
The industrial look
 
Industrial kitchens, a cross between a Manhattan-style restaurant and loft, are gaining popularity. With a preference for open cabinets and new and used material, industrial-style kitchens still offer you all the comforts of modern everyday life and much more. Like a restaurant, they typically come with a large-capacity refrigerator and gas stove. An enamelled cast iron or galvanized steel sink usually completes the look.
 
White
 
Timeless in look and style, white kitchens tend to be reinvented every year. In 2014, you will see warmer whites with a more rustic, country-style look, plus pure and highly lacquered whites in über-modern kitchens. There’s certainly something for everyone.
