BUT it also captures another trend not mentioned in this article. Concealed Storage Centers/ Larders are a huge trend. We want open shelves to display our everyday dishwware, decoratives, etc. but we also want our counters clutter-free and items like small appliances clutter our counters, don't work well on floating shelves and usually come along with all the gadgets, pantry items, and supplies you use when operating them equaling more clutter. Larders alow you to house all your needs for one task in one place. Cabinet doors can tuck back or swing to the side while in use or during the average day, but when you're ready to make your kitchen look de-cluttered and tidy, simply shut the doors!

This trend is popular for Beverage Centers, home bars, baking centers, smoothie stations, breakfast stations, arts and craft stations, and more.

I love the idea of the larders. In an older traditional kitchen the cabinets are full of close together shelves and probably not deep enough either. It would be nice to have a couple of the larders. I love the newer Morrocan tile backsplashes. I do not think that I would ever tire of them. I am already tired of heavily veined marble and faux marble however. All that grey striping looks grubby to me even when it is clean. I like a more regular neat design in prettier colors. I have a small older kitchen in a 1936 house. It was remodeled in the 80's with painted Shaker cabinets ( teal wash ). They are fine. I'm not going to disturb them and they have drawers and inserts. It probably cost a lot and I did not really have to pay for it. I had to replace the floor when I moved in as it was destroyed. Why I thought that 12 inch white tiles with white grout made any sense I do not know. It is laid in a nice broken running pattern and if I'd chosen colored grout I would not be kicking myself to this day. He did a lovely job and also tried to talk me out of the grout. I have white Corian counters. I love them-they are in excellent shape and not stained 40 years later. The backsplash is very low end-white 4 inch tiles. Also in good condition. I cannot afford to tear it out but I did buy some very pretty switch plates from a more arty hardware store in Austin. My kitchen get light from all 4 directions when the dining room door is open. I find that this absolutely makes me love it. And it has a bay window by the breakfast table. I enjoy reading Houzz for the ideas and the variety. I love comparing the European homes to the American ones. In Europe they accept their smaller kitchens and still manage to love them. That said I had a much bigger kitchen in a prior house-44 cabinets and a large pantry -all painted a nice sky blue enamel. I loved it too.
