For many years, kitchen design trends have leaned more on the side of the classic bright, white look. While we’re big fans of this timeless kitchen design, 2019 is the perfect time to break away from neutral kitchens. The new year has brought many new and exciting trends that we can’t wait to incorporate into our kitchen remodels. Check them out below.
Gray cabinets have become commonplace in kitchen remodeling but this trend may be on it’s way out. More and more homeowners are favoring stained cabinets over painted cabinets, which allows the natural texture of the wood to peek through. Though there is a wide variety of stains available, many choose to keep it neutral and opt for a shade like natural oak. With its versatility and the texture of the natural wood peeking through, natural oak fits a range of styles.
Spice up a neutral color palette by adding a splash of color like Sherwin Williams’ 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay. When paired with bright tiles, woodgrains, and leather accents, this warm terracotta color creates a casual, yet refined kitchen design.
Pops of Pattern
In addition to bright colors, bold patterns are continuing their rise in 2019. From flooring to tile backsplashes and wallpaper, our clients are finding new and exciting ways to incorporate patterns into their kitchens. As an easy way to create visual drama with eye-catching designs with minimal effort, this is a trend we can get behind!
Dark Hued Cabinets
In 2019 we expect to see a rise in cabinets painted with dark hues of blue, black, and olive tones. This trend is an unexpected alternative to previously favored neutral cabinets and creates a vibe that’s the perfect blend of moody and elegant. Not ready to commit to this trend? Ease into it with two-toned cabinets and paint the lower cabinets in a dark shade while selecting a lighter, complimentary shade for the upper cabinets.
Metallic accents from silver to bronze to gold have risen in popularity in recent years. Whether keeping it subtle by updating existing kitchen hardware with one of these metallics or creating a unique blend of tones by mixing and matching, this trend can add a touch of sophistication and warmth to any kitchen design.
Personalized Kitchen Layouts
Recently, kitchen remodeling has begun to shift from the classic layout of upper and lower cabinets, a center island, and integrated appliances. Now there’s no need to get bogged down in the industry standard of kitchen layouts. Instead, it’s all about creating a space that’s unique to you and your specific wants and needs. That may include and open-plan adjacent dining area, floating shelves, or any other custom features. Whatever your dream kitchen looks like, you can create it!
