Remodeling a kitchen is a big undertaking. Our expert contractors and design team at Tom’s Best Quality Remodeling will take the stress out of your remodeling project. Before deciding on the crucial design elements of your new kitchen, check out these 5 kitchen trends of 2019.
1. Black Cabinetry
Neutral cabinet colors have been trending for years, but the pack was primarily led by stark white or gray. This year, however, black cabinets are on the rise. In terms of finish, we recommend a matte finish rather than a high gloss. Glossy cabinets tend to show smudges and fingerprints, whereas a matte finish is more forgiving. Our design service team can help you choose the right lighting, paint colors, tile, and hardware to complement your cabinets.
2. Concealed Hood Vents
In years gone by, industrial hood vents were incredibly popular. Stainless steel and exposed ductwork were in high demand. This year, however, designers recommend blending your vent with the rest of the kitchen. The emphasis is on creating a quiet, artful space with exposed elements blending together seamlessly.
3. Industrial Countertops
Industrial countertops are in high demand. Concrete countertops (real and laminate look-alikes) offer an artistic, subtle contrast to neutral cabinets and mixed metal fixtures. Plus, concrete countertops are completely customizable: you determine the shape, thickness, color, and texture.
4. Mixed Metals
Brass was everyone’s favorite metal accent in 2018. While brass still is a beloved choice for 2019, it doesn’t stand alone anymore. This year, designers recommend mixing metals like brass, pewter, and copper to create an organic appeal. Mixed metals accents are particularly striking against black cabinets.
5. Forged Iron Shelves
Open shelving is a great way to save money on kitchen storage while showing off your wares. This year, forged iron shelves are America’s favorite. Forged iron creates a somewhat nostalgic, industrial feel while not overpowering your space. And, to top it off, they come in the color of the year: black
