As an architect and founder of D.Signers, I have helped many clients design their dream kitchens. So, if you have any questions or need specific advice to achieve your dream kitchen, please let me know in the comment section below.
Trend number 1: Dark Kitchens
One of the favorite trends of 2019 is a dark color palette. This trend shows fewer primary colors and a greater emphasis on black. Dark gray with natural wood is one of my favorite combinations because it is elegant, timeless, and adds warmth to the space. The natural wood helps to humanize and soften up the space, creating a perfect balance with the dark color.
Trend number 2: Matte Everything
Matte finishes are becoming increasingly popular in the market. Matte cabinets, appliances, and details are perfect for kitchens because they are easier to keep clean. You can easily change the hardware in your kitchen, so take a risk and try something beautiful and different.
Trend number 3: Open Shelving
Open shelving and glass fronted cabinets allow homeowners to showcase their personalities with displays of unique and artistic kitchen and dining room pieces. If you don’t like to have open shelving because you don’t want to reveal the entire content of your cabinet, textured glass is the solution for you. In this way, you can add a wonderful layer of texture to the space and it’s a great tool to mix it up with the straight lines of the cabinets, adding a visual and personal touch to a contemporary kitchen.
Trend number 4: Counter and Backsplash
In 2019, we are going back to basics for counters. High-contrasting marbles in dark colors are timeless and elegant. Terrazzo has also made an important comeback and has their fans. Nowadays, for terrazzo, there are so many different combinations that can be very interesting. You can choose between timeless marble or a modern-looking terrazzo. Splashbacks are no longer resigned to just being practical elements, now, designers are using them to create real focal points in the kitchen. For a modern and clean-looking, consider using the same material on the countertop and the backsplash!
Trend number 5: Special and Unique Sinks
Details are not just details; they make the design. Say goodbye to all the too-common sinks and say hello to unique statement designs. Try a sink in gold or a multifunctional sink that can be beautiful and functional to develop in a comfortable way the time you spend in the kitchen.
In conclusion, designing your dream kitchen is an exciting project that allows you to create a space that perfectly reflects your personality and style. Incorporating these emerging kitchen trends into your design plan will not only make your kitchen look beautiful and stylish but also functional and practical.
