Want to give your home a beautiful upgrade for 2019? A kitchen redesign is a great way to create a festive focal point for your holiday gatherings! Plus, it increases your home’s value and will be enjoyed for years to come.
Because it provides immediately usefulness and value, a new or updated kitchen is one of the most satisfying upgrades you can make in your home. When planning, think of all the ways your current kitchen space is missing the mark, and don’t be afraid to ask the experts at GNH for guidance and tips along the way.
So, what’s trending in kitchen design for 2019? Here are our top 12 picks:
1. White is Out – Black is Back
White kitchens have achieved the peak of their popularity but expect to see this trend decline in the coming year. Instead, consider the richness and moodiness of black or dark cabinetry combined with matte surfaces and walls, like the Omega kitchen above.
2. Undercounter appliances
According to Decoraid.com, since kitchen design ideas in 2019 will call for clearing spots above lower cabinetry, opt for under the counter appliances like microwaves to keep them out of sight as upper spots become more vacant. (Image source: Decoraid.com)
3. DEEP drawers
Cooking and storage will be aided by placing deep drawers like the Omega Cabinetry drawer above, in high-traffic areas of your kitchen.
4. unique sinks
Bigger than ever are sinks in bright metallics, hammered finishes, intricate details and gold. Large, industrial-sized sinks are also experiencing popularity for their dramatic look and usefulness. (Image source: Decoraid.com)
