The New Year means new trends are just around the corner, so if you are planning a renovation for your kitchen, keep on reading to discover what will be in for 2019 according to the industry experts and designers.
Matte Black is Back
Whilst glossy surfaces have dominated much of the industry for several years now, these overdone and understated materials are making a comeback. Matte black is particularly popular as it naturally reduces the appearance of marks and fingerprints.
Be Bold with Gold
If you want to create an ambience which echoes class, then opt for gold or copper tones for your faucets and smaller fixtures. These colourful accents are guaranteed to compliment your darker work surfaces and cabinets.
Pops of Colour
Should you wish to incorporate some colour into your new kitchen, then range cookers from the likes of Smeg (who have partnered with Dolce and Gabanna) are the way to go - along with bold fridges and unique splashbacks.
An Open Approach
Shelves that enable you to showcase your beautiful crockery or fresh produce will be particularly popular next year as they also address the functional aspects when it comes to practicality and accessing your items with greater ease.
Light Up Your World
When it comes to lighting it is all about eye-catching pendant lights which make a statement. Pendant lights will enable you to illuminate larger open plan spaces and will prove to be popular amongst luxury developments.
Hygge – Comfort, Minimalism and Simplicity
This Danish trend has occupied the world of blogging for a few years now and has been slowly working its way into our homes. If you’re seeking to create warmth and cosy vibes then pastels, wooden features and clean lines are your best option.
Think natural stone to embossed sinks. Whilst the sink is often overlooked, this year will see designers focusing on creating sinks that optimise space and complement the overall look and feel of your kitchen.
Fresh, Green and Healthy
With many of us becoming more health conscious and demanding fresher food, 2019 will see indoor herb gardens making an appearance and encouraging us to bring nature into our homes and kitchens.
Induction cooking that offers hidden elements underneath your counter and allows you to serve on when not in use will see an increase in popularity next year as more of us decide to embrace chef-inspired cooking methods. Moreover, the great thing about induction cooking is the safety aspects which ensure that little hands won’t get burnt should they accidentally wander.
Modern technology is becoming more prevalent in our modern lives, coupled with our desire to stay connected, it is no wonder that many organisations are now focusing on launching apps and devices to meet our needs. From cameras that enable you to view the contents of your fridge whilst you’re out, to dash buttons that can be placed on your kitchen appliances (connected via the Internet) and when pressed enable you to quickly order your kitchen essentials such as kitchen roll via Amazon.
