The National Kitchen & Bath Association's 2014 style report finds that modern designs are in demand, with grey and neutral colour schemes expected to be hot, design features as well as glass cabinets. According to Los Angeles Times Home & Design "kitchen and bath design trends are taking a minimalist, hassle-free turn." ; "Tuscan, provincial and country-rustic looks are fading in popularity in kitchens and baths, and contemporary designs with clean lines, minimal ornamentation and easy maintenance are rapidly taking their place" according to a style report released in February by the National Kitchen & Bath Assn.
Los Angeles Times Home & Design reports that the industry group surveyed its members about trends in kitchen design.
Grey colour schemes are expected to increase sharply in kitchens in 2014. In the kitchen, white and off-white are the top colour schemes.
