When it comes to remodeling, kitchens are often at the top of the list. With so much time spent in the kitchen, homeowners want to create a design that’s not only beautiful but functional.
In recent years, kitchen designs have gravitated toward the classic bright, white look. While we love this neutral design, 2019 holds some fun and unexpected trends we can’t wait to incorporate into our designs. Check them out below.
Dark Hued Cabinets
Homeowners are ditching neutral kitchens and opting for dark-hued cabinets in blue, black, and olive tones. The overall vibe is a chic mix of moody and elegant.
Gold and Copper Accents
Metallic accents add a touch of sophistication and warmth to any kitchen design, thanks to the way they shine in the light. Go subtle by updating kitchen hardware with one of these metallics or create a showstopping design with a trendy copper sink. Gold hardware also pairs well with black kitchen cabinets and appliances.
Add a splash of color to a kitchen backsplash with colorful grout to make designs stand out. This look is great for white tiles because it adds dimension and a much needed pop of color in a new and exciting way.
Storage has continued to top the list of “wants” when it comes to kitchen design for quite some time. Deep cabinet drawers are the perfect solution, housing anything from pots and pans to small appliances.
Homeowners with small spaces are maximizing every inch by turning the dead space of their sink into a prep station. Covered sinks also have the benefit of hiding those dishes that haven’t made it into the dishwasher yet.
Create balance and visual interest with two-toned kitchen cabinets. Choose lower cabinets in darker hues and draw the eye upward with light-toned upper cabinets.
Ready for a blast from the past? Terrazzo surfaces are making a comeback. Popular in the 50s and 60s, Terrazzo surfaces will give your kitchen a Mid-Century Modern twist that’s become popular with interior designers today.
Put kitchen items on display with a little open shelving. Floating shelving made of wood can add a rustic vibe while metal shelving adds industrial elements to a design. Open shelving is a unique way to showcase your favorite dishes and decor.
Create a little visual drama in a neutral kitchen with patterned tiles. Bold printed tiles are a great way to add a little color and are perfect for an eye-catching kitchen backsplash.
Homeowners on a budget are gravitating toward concrete countertops. Not only are they an affordable alternative to quartz and granite, but concrete countertops also add a modern, yet industrial feel to any kitchen design.
