05 Jan Popular Kitchen Trends for 2019
Are you planning a kitchen renovation in the new year? If you want to follow the “out with the old and in with the new” rule, here are some hot kitchen design trends for 2019 to get your ideas flowing.
Dramatic Cabinet Colors
For many years, white cabinetry has been the preferred color of choice for the kitchen. Not only does white offer a clean slate for adding touches of color and décor, it also provides an illusion of space when size is at a premium. However, according to the home design pros on Houzz, bold, moody colors are making a big comeback in 2019. Hues within the navy palette are currently the most popular, but black, forest green and even calming pink are joining the ranks of desirable kitchen paint colors this year. This holds especially true when paired with gold hardware and fixtures.
Backsplash Feature Walls
Backsplashes have evolved from mere pops of tile above the counter to entire walls. These feature walls of ceramic or glass tiles extend all the way to the ceiling or behind floating shelves and range hoods to form a cohesive design. If you’re looking to bring style to your kitchen, this cost-effective feature will add texture and visual interest. How monochrome or colorful you wish to go is up to you.
Custom built-in bench seating created for a kitchen dining nook is popular for both comfort and storage capabilities. Stand-alone furniture pieces are nice alternatives for built-ins that can easily be moved from one spot to another. Comfy benches provide additional seating and turn almost any dining spot into a relaxed lounge area. Whether custom or movable, bench seats are great for tucking away linens, games, seasonal items and more. The best design feature is that cushions can be customized to match any color scheme.
Steel and Glass Dividers
Over the last few years, homeowners have shown increasing interest in glass and steel front doors and shower enclosures. Now, the look has spread to interior rooms. When used to separate the kitchen from another area in the home, the transparency effect of glass and steel offers an open aesthetic while also providing noise and odor control. If you aren’t keen on having an open floor plan in your home yet still want your space to feel connected, this is a great solution.
With more homeowners calling the kitchen the hub of the home, expanding the kitchen and living space outdoors is a fast-tracking trend. Large sliding or collapsible doors paired with all-season exterior cabinetry and comfortable patio furniture make it easy to connect your indoor living space to your patio or deck. The nice part is, this extension of your home can be enjoyed all year long.
