When it comes to kitchen design, there’s a secret to taking your space to the next level that all design mavens know: nothing adds depth and intrigue to a room like eye-catching textures and striking patterns. From warm woods, to bare brick, to striking tiles, texture enhances the feeling of the room – whether comfortable and cozy or ultra-glamorous. Here are a few of my favorite ways to incorporate this top trend in kitchen design.

Wooden Materials

Texture adds character and contrast to your space, and wood is one of the best materials to help elevate a room. If looking to add a special elegance or rustic feel, wooden features provide just the trick and can be utilized to enhance designs of varying aesthetics. From reclaimed woods that exude an aged feel, to band-sawn planks with distinct marks that provide the ultimate personalized look, you can’t go wrong no matter which style you choose. To warm up a cooler room, natural wood is the perfect wall or ceiling addition, while herringbone wood flooring makes a big statement. Custom-paneled Thermador appliances with a wood finish also add an ultra-warm touch, providing dimension to open-plan living areas and the smallest of spaces.

Exposed Brick

If looking to add a natural and understated texture to your space, bare bricks provide a striking solution. Boasting a raw charm, brick exudes high style and exceptionally elevates kitchens of diverse designs – from modern and industrial, to classically traditional. Brick also one of the most versatile materials, seamlessly adapting to whichever décor you pair it with. For a statement-making look, sleek Thermador appliances add an extra touch of luxury that will take your kitchen design up a notch.

Textured Tiles

One of my favorite – and most popular – ways to add texture to the kitchen is by incorporating tile. Whether sleek and smooth or rough and with dimension, it’s essential to choose the right texture for the desired effect. For a splash of creativity, ceramic tiles with bright and bold patterns are a great way to infuse a pop in a neutral kitchen or can also enhance an already bold space. Whether your design is rustic and cozy or modern and sleek, a unique tile design can almost double as a work of art – and with Thermador appliances to top off the look, your kitchen design is sure to be the envy of all who enter.
