From cabinet colours to appliances, these ideas are going strong
When it comes to fashion or interiors, trends come and they go. In the renovation space, styles and ideas are a little less fleeting—especially in kitchens, as replacing cabinets, countertops, or even flooring is definitely not an annual occurrence. Based on seeing thousands of kitchen renovation wish lists, Houseace has identified patterns predict will gain traction in 2019, while also becoming new reno classics.
Here are the biggest 2019 kitchen trends to look out for:
Two-tone cabinets bring more visual interest to the kitchen, plus allow for more colour exploration without feeling overpowering. White upper cabinets give the illusion of higher ceilings and more space, while darker upper cabinets create a cosier ambiance and ground the space.
Hardware may not be the star of your kitchen renovation, but it definitely contributes to the overall vibe. This year, we’ve seen traditional knobs fall in favour of simple pulls that are no less practical—just more subtle.
There are two types of people in this world: ones who are partial to exposed appliances and those who would rather keep them hidden. (Kidding, but really!) Ultimately, it’s up to personal preference, but our recent renovations prove that integrated appliances are making their mark.
Hidden Storage Solutions
When spending the time and effort to reimagine a kitchen, why let pantry items and unsightly small appliances get in the way of your vision? Custom units allow easy access to essentials without the visual clutter.
Statement Light Fixtures
As islands and peninsulas have become mainstays in kitchens renovations, so have stand-out light fixtures to hang above them. Whether a chandelier or a more classic sconce, including a dramatic source, immediately makes a kitchen more intimate.
