You’ve no doubt heard the clamoring of “New Year, New You,” but 2019 is turning that revolution on its head with “New Year, New Kitchen.” 2019 will be the last year in the teens, why not throw it a party and welcome it to its 20s?
Refreshing your home decor is never an easy decision. It takes a lot of thought and input from every member of the household. It can be an overwhelming and frustrating process. We’re here to help!
If you’re planning on remodeling or updating your kitchen this year, we’ve compiled 5 of the hottest kitchen design trends for 2019:
Bench Seating in the Kitchen
People who come from big families are already familiar with bench seating. Cozy and space saving, bench seating removes the barriers of individual seats at the table. Talk about family togetherness!
Booth-style seating creates a casual, relaxed feel to family dinners. Everyone knows the booth seats are the best seats in every restaurant. Now you can have them in your home. Plus they accommodate more people and you know what they say — the more the merrier!
Kitchens are turning into moody teenagers this year. Navy, black and forest green are three of the paint colors surging in popularity for home decor right now. If you’re not enthused by the idea of darker hues, you can paint the ceiling a darker color and use earthy shades on the walls, such as forest green.
The muted tones of tans and greens pair well with natural-wood finishes. Raw materials — rock and wood, for example — are also a hot trend for kitchen counters and surfaces.
Digital Technology (Fridges with TVs, etc.)
We’re moving closer and closer to robots taking over the world. With Roombas, Siri and Alexis, they’re already taking over our homes. Refrigerators with built-in television screens are the latest digital technology advancement.
Not just for watching TV, they can record notes and to-do lists. Hey, at least you don’t have to worry about being dumped via Post-It these days.
Matte Black Appliances (good-bye all white)
One of the top trends of 2018 was an all-white kitchen, including appliances. With moody paint colors on the list for trends for 2019, say goodbye to your white appliances and hello to your matte black appliances.
Your budget for kitchen remodeling probably doesn’t include going to the store and buying all new appliances. You can use self-priming epoxy appliance paint to update the color of your kitchen gadgets. It can be found at any hardware store.
Welcome to 2019, where you can open a dishwasher by knocking on it and open cupboards with a touch from your hips. It will go perfectly with your smart home voice appliance. All that’s missing is Rosie from the Jetsons.
One of the hottest trends for 2019 is a handle-free kitchen. Think of all the things you’ve dropped struggling to open the fridge when your hands are full. This is especially helpful for all of us klutzes out there.
