Looking for some inspiration during a remodeling project or just want to give your kitchen an easy update?
The window for all white kitchens may be coming to a close and new trends have something for everyone. 2019’s collection of kitchen trends include ideas for storage, color, appliances, and more ways to incorporate ease into the hub of a home.
Here are some kitchen design styles to watch for:
Matchy-matchy kitchens could be a thing of the past. Consumers are becoming more open to experimenting with colors and nontraditional finishes. Mixing metal elements is an easy way to incorporate a variety of décor styles while maintaining a timeless style. Mixed metal elements can have a striking appearance on appliances, fixtures, hardware, and more.
Fresh Take on Open Shelving
When executed properly, open shelving is a great way to showcase tableware, give height to a small kitchen, and create a light open feeling. This popular kitchen feature has evolved from plain shelves to live-edge wood, glass, marble, and fixed metal finishes now entering the mix.
Furniture Benches and Banquettes
Furniture benches and custom-built banquettes can provide loads of hidden storage or an elegant piece that coordinates with family dining chairs. They can also be a solution to fitting more people around a table and create a more comfortable space to hangout.
Thanks to the Scandinavian minimalist style, a decluttering movement has left people searching for ways to organize – especially in the kitchen! Homeowners are investing in custom storage solutions that allow them to carve out space for items they use the most.
Consumers are looking for cooking appliances that are more responsive, flexible, and intuitive. This safe-to-touch surface is perfect for families with small children and its speedy heating time gets dinner on the table fast.
Blue is having a major moment in the kitchen. From lighter robin’s egg blue to deep, moody navy, blue is a color that is diverse, calming, inclusive and goes with nearly everything.
