Kitchens have come a very long way over the decades and they have now become one of the main focal points of a home. If you’re considering renovating your current kitchen layout or if you simply want to refresh your kitchen’s colour schemes, then now is the perfect time to plan the kitchen of your dreams.
The year 2018 had showcased some of the most impressive kitchen design trends with everything from industrial-inspired surfaces and taps, all the way to modern kitchen islands and home bars. With so many trends to look at, what are the biggest kitchen trends for 2019?
Here is our list of some of the biggest kitchen trends for 2019.
With the incredible advancements in technology, it was only a matter of time before it made its way to our kitchens. Today, you can benefit from a smart kitchen that has technology integrated into every function which allows you to control everything with a touch of a button. Boiling water taps and Wi-Fi ready appliances are just some of the possibilities when it comes to modern technology in the kitchen. For example, smart refrigerators can alert you when you are running low on groceries and coffee makers can be programmed to make your coffee for you when you wake up.
The possibilities for a smart kitchen are endless in 2019.
Vibrant Colour Schemes
The use of colour schemes remains to be an extremely important part of your kitchen design and the colours that you choose, should reflect your personality and your tastes. In a kitchen, a space for cooking should be bright and light, whereas spaces that are for entertainment should have darker colours to create ambience.
In 2018, the use of bold and vibrant colour schemes has become increasingly popular and it will continue to be popular for 2019. Bright bursts of colour in a kitchen are very trendy right now as it adds contrast and warmth.
One of the recurring trends that we have seen in 2018, was the use of multi-functional islands. When it comes to the functionality and appearance of your kitchen, an island pulls everything together and provides a nice balance of both worlds. Many islands will have a seating area attached so that dining can be easily incorporated into the kitchen area, effectively providing more functionality. An island isn’t just for food preparation and it can be utilised further by installing kitchen appliances, integrating storage areas, and even adding a smaller sink.
Subtle & Concealed Lighting
Subtle illumination and concealed lighting were incredibly popular trends in 2018 and we foresee that these trends will continue to be popular in kitchen designs. With a good design, layers of lighting can enhance a kitchen and make it look stunning.
Some of the most popular places that people used lighting in the kitchen were on the underside of cupboards in order illuminate the work surface. Placing LED lighting under counters and cabinetry is also a simple way to add subtle bits of lighting and change the atmosphere of a room. Disguised lighting channels that are built into plasterboards are also a trending feature in modern designs.
