Owning a home is meant to be one of life’s great experiences, and a chance to make unforgettable, long-lasting memories with your loved ones. Holiday parties, birthday dinners, and home-cooked meals eaten in the kitchen are just some of the ways we spend our favorite moments together, and they all happen to take place in the kitchen.
The kitchen has become an increasingly popular room for people to hang out in. Sometimes it’s as simple as just discussing your day over a snack. Other times, it’s one more room to hold people during a party. As important as the kitchen is for cooking, entertaining, and spending time together, it’s important that you’re happy with the design. Is it functional yet aesthetically pleasing to you? Or do you feel as though you need an update?
At Surface Innovations, we love remodeling our customer’s kitchens to reflect their style, taste, and practicality. We’ve seen plenty of designs and décor themes come and go over the years, and are always keeping an eye out for the most current trends and styles dominating the market at any given moment. If you’re thinking about upgrading your kitchen and are looking for inspiration, here are some of our favorite kitchen remodeling trends that we think are likely to be trending in 2019.
New Year, New Designs
We all know that designing a new kitchen can be exciting. All those colors, materials, tiles and countertop patterns make for many possibilities. However, it can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. That’s why we have provided a look into some top kitchen design styles for you to consider.
- Warm it Up: A popular choice that is not going away is the use of warm colors and natural materials. For your kitchen cabinets, think natural wood with sandstone or other neutral, earth-toned paint colors. Soft earth colors like beige, brown, sky blue and orange clay reflect our Southwestern, desert-style environment, which can be quite appealing and conducive with our natural environment. Bright colors like turquoise, for example, are also very popular accents to go with the warm theme.
- Going Dark: One of the more popular design trends that have developed is in stark contrast with the all-white kitchens popular in recent years. Darker kitchen cabinets and furnishings are currently trending, including black countertops, dark wood accents, and gray or dark blue patterns. If you find that brighter colors don’t mesh with your style, this is a more sophisticated option for you. Plus, with a thoughtful eye towards lighting, you can create different moods for different occasions.
- Make a Splash: Kitchen backsplash products continue to be a popular option for homeowners to take advantage of to add a design element to the kitchen. For 2019, larger slabs with different textures are the focal point. The great thing about this option is you can either make a neutral color scheme to balance the pops of color throughout the kitchen or for those who go neutral in their color scheme this is their chance to liven things up from a design standpoint. In addition, consider brightly colored appliances for that eye-catching appeal.
- Open it Up: One of the biggest trends is to take advantage of in kitchen renovations is to add in bigger, more beautiful window installations. People who take advantage of this option usually go for a minimalist approach to their kitchen design to further create the illusion of a bigger kitchen, especially for smaller spaces.
The sky is the limit with design choices. To help you with your design, consider working with professionals like our expert kitchen contractors at Surface Innovations, who can blend design with functionality for a truly superior kitchen you’ll enjoy for years to come.
