Staying on top of the latest design trends can help you make great style choices when it comes to renovating your own kitchen. Here are some trends that are going to make it big in 2019:
Gone are the days of high-gloss paint! When it comes to walls, cabinets and even countertops, we’re seeing a lot of matte finishes. Some of our suppliers are coming out with velvet finishes to match this trend, and there are going to be lots of options for homeowners who want to achieve this look in the year to come.
White is an ever-popular colour choice for kitchens, and one that’s unlikely to go out of style, but for homeowners who are looking for something a bit different, dark colours are making it big in the kitchen design space. Grey and navy are becoming more and more common in kitchens, but the key is to combine these dark colours with lighter features to maintain a balance.
The past few years has seen a resurgence in shiny hardware and other fixtures, but 2019 is the year of champagne and brushed bronze. Whether it’s your faucet, cabinet hardware or light fixtures, you’re going to see lots of these colours in the coming year.
Dishware and stemware isn’t just functional, so why hide it all away? Homeowners are paying just as much attention to the style of their dinner plates and glasses as the kitchen itself, and display shelving is becoming a popular way to show off these items. Whether you go for a fully open, floating shelf or glass-fronted cabinets, there are lots of ways to incorporate this trend into your kitchen this year.
Sinks aren’t just for doing dishes anymore. Sinks are becoming increasingly multi-functional as we use them for meal prep, rinsing fruits and vegetables and much more. Not only are we seeing trends toward deeper, larger sinks, they’re also being upgraded with accessories. Sliding cutting boards, multi-level sink grids, integrated colanders and even compost collectors are turning sinks into one of the most functional parts of the kitchen.
