7 Kitchen Trends That Time Forgot

1. Wonky Angled Islands 😵

Back in the day, builders and architects seemed to have a wild obsession with weird angles. You couldn't just have a plain, rectangular island; oh no, you needed a perplexing nonsensical angle to connect your kitchen to the rest of your house. Thank you, '80s and '90s, for giving us this head-scratcher.

2. Double-Height Counters 🧐

Imagine having a kitchen island with two different height countertops, as if segregating your guests from your cooking activities was the epitome of kitchen design. Well, that's exactly what this trend did. Thankfully, we've moved on to more functional and sociable kitchen layouts.

3. Double Basin Sinks 🚿

Remember the era when dishwashers were a luxury, and double basin sinks were a necessity? Yeah, those days are gone. With dishwashers around, there's no need for this duplication. Single basin sinks provide a seamless workflow, and there are more modern sink solutions for the choosy ones.

4. Glass Tile Backsplashes 🍭

Glass Tile Backsplashes

Thin, rectangular glass tiles in high-contrast colors - the '90s and early 2000s were all about this repetitive nightmare. Your eyes never got a break with these visual feasts, and they struggled to adapt to changing design trends.

5. Busy Backsplashes with Busy Countertops 🤯

Mixing patterns can be cool, but matching dark, super busy granite countertops with a million tiny, multi-colored tiles was a design disaster. If you've got this combo, consider toning it down with something neutral before your kitchen screams "visual chaos."

6. Tuscan Themed Kitchens 🍷

The North American version of Tuscan-themed kitchens overloaded on heavy wooden cabinetry, ornate arches, and more. It looked like a cheesy replica that belonged in a Vegas-themed casino. Let's leave the rustic Tuscan kitchens in Tuscany, where they truly belong.

7. Overhead Pot Racks 🍳

Remember those overhead pot racks that were all the rage? Well, they looked cool, but they cluttered the space and only worked if your pots were pristine. In reality, most kitchens prefer concealed storage and an uncluttered vibe.

There you have it, folks! Kitchen trends that time should never bring back. Let us know in the comments what outdated kitchen features make you cringe! Thanks for tuning in, and remember, your kitchen should be a place of culinary inspiration, not a time capsule. See you in the next one, bye! 🥂👋
