The Kitchen is the area in which family and friends tend to congregate and, in fact, in most homes is the central part of the house. Over time people have begun to invest more into the renovation of their kitchens, as this sets the tone for the rest of the house and provides a memorable experience. Changes such as worktops, cabinets or all of the above will massively change the mood of your kitchen.
For some time now light and pale colours have been extremely popular to create a bright and open feel. However, many designers suggest that, in terms of trending colours for 2019, warm and inviting colours are more desirable in order to reflect a homely environment. Although creams, blues and whites will still be popular, natural shades representing nature including; organic/natural colours, muddy blues, burnt oranges, dark browns and blacks will also prove popular, giving that cosy and welcoming feel.
In order to counteract the darker colours, rather than using whites, glass will be prominent, again maintaining that feeling of open space.
When it comes to kitchen cabinetry, rustic woods such as walnut oak and elm are becoming trendier, as well as built in pantries and handless cabinets, especially if you’re looking for that minimalistic look. And even some open shelving; allowing homeowners to display their crockery and create a unique feel, breaking up that monotonous vibe. Kitchens are moving towards being less visually chaotic, creating calmness within the open space, allowing you to de-stress.
Following on from 2018, rather than staying safe with a single cabinet colour, two-tone is very much a thing, such as dark blue upper and yellow lower cabinets. Another alternative is incorporating stone, creating more of a rustic feel. But whatever you choose, no kitchen will look the same.
Matte finishes remain in style and provide a contrast to gloss finishes. They are easy to keep clean and are certain not to go out of trend. It is a simple but effective design completed with the copper taps and sinks. When it comes to sinks, although stainless steel will forever be a popular option, metallic as well as other various colours are making an appearance, used to compliment the kitchens colour pallet.
Concrete and marble effects are still dominant materials. However, the more traditional geometric repeat tile patterns, using bold and vibrant colours, are making a come back, along with the option to choose a ‘warm’ or ‘cool’ palette. By installing a bold and bright kitchen you create an environment your visitors won’t forget!
A popular 2018 introduction of copper, brass and gold is still providing homes with the luxurious finish to handles and taps, complimenting both the dark or light design of your kitchen, depending on what you have chosen. Both these materials provide homes with a classy vibe, but yet affordable.
So if you’re just renovating or simply want to start from scratch and refresh a tired look, any of these options will be sure to give your kitchen that exclusive and trendy look.
