Lots of kitchen ideas on this HGTV webpage. A white kitchen is timeless... You can warm it up with touches of wood. And some people want a kitchen/great room; they put the computer, TV, crafts, etc. there; they might even add a couch--or two--and don't forget the coffee table. This explains the study that says people are spending more time in their kitchen.
Other trends include making an artistic statement on your range hood, cupboard doors, and backsplash. Also, using organic shapes (no straight lines or sharp corners). And, of course, prosumer kitchens (restaurant style features and heavy duty construction).
