Nowadays, kitchens are more than just cooking and food preparation areas. In many homes, the kitchen is a multi-purpose area used for entertaining and spending time with family. Some homeowners even use their kitchens as an office!
If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, then you need to make sure it looks good — for you and for everyone else who uses it too. Listed here are some of the hottest kitchen trends for 2019. These trends will inspire you and give you ideas on what to do to your kitchen.
Are you planning a kitchen remodeling project? Or are you looking for ideas to spruce up your kitchen? Here are some ideas for you.
Play With Colors
In past years, white kitchen cabinets were all the rage because of the sleek, clean look they offered. This year, more and more homeowners are choosing bold colors such as plum, red or even black to add a splash of color or bold contrast to the kitchen.
If you are not comfortable with those colors, you can opt to paint your cabinets in a more subdued hue such as mint green, which adds a refreshing feel to the kitchen.
Pair those mint green cabinets with walls and backsplashes covered in natural stone. The earthy look will add a cool, organic vibe to your kitchen. Want to extend the look outside? Ask your home improvement contractor about siding options available to you!
Modern kitchens look good when fitted with appliances with a matte black finish. Refrigerators, microwave ovens, cooktops and even mixers now come in sleek black finishes that will complement your kitchen. If you can afford it, choose “smart” kitchen appliances to further improve functionality in the space.
Clean Is “In”
Everyone will agree that a clutter-free kitchen is ideal–but achieving this aesthetic can be easier said than done. Appliance cabinets in which small kitchen equipment like coffee makers can be concealed will help you maintain a clutter-free countertop. Opting to remove your range hood and employing the use of alternative ventilation methods like downdraft ventilation can also help you achieve a clean, clutter-free look.
