The National Kitchen & Bath Association released their findings of the trends for 2010’s kitchens and baths. For the full write up, go to Kitchen & Bath Business’ website. Here is the list of the most popular trends:


1. Cabinet style: Shaker

2. Cabinet wood species: Maple

3. Cabinet finish: Dark

4. Including wine storage in cabinetry

5. Muted Colors

6. French door refrigerators

7. Gas cooktops are still the most popular

8. Including trash/recycling storage in cabinetry


1. Quartz countertops

2. Undermount sinks

3. White/Off-white color palettes

4. Satin nickel fixture finish

I would also like to add some of my own personal observations. For the Kitchen, lantern-style pendant lights were very popular over kitchen islands. White painted cabinetry is very popular right now, especially with light granite or marble countertops. Cabinetry that is styled like furniture continues to be popular, both in kitchens and bathrooms.
