At Country Cabinets, etc., we carefully track trends in the kitchen and bath industry to help assure that our clients’ new kitchens and baths are not only on point but are capable of withstanding the test of time. Here are the top mid-year trends in our region.
Rich mixed colors
The kitchen and bath industry often follows fashion trends, and 2019 is no exception to the rule. Homeowners who have recently renovated their kitchen and made distinctive design statements by opting for a mix of different colors, textures and finishes. While white kitchens continue to be a choice for many, that option is not as popular as in the past. Many of our clients recently choose cabinets painted in rich colors, and that trend is borne nationally as blue and green cabinetry have greatly increased in popularity.
There’s a reason kitchen islands are wildly popular and have become the centerpiece of many of the kitchens we design. For nearly 40 years, islands have withstood the test of time and are largely responsible for making open concept designs work. Islands are often the focal point of a new kitchen. Employing contrasting colors and sometimes unique countertop materials enable homeowners in to put their stamp on their new kitchen.
Increased demand for more modern space is transforming design as an increasing number of clients opt for open shelving systems. Open shelves replace the lion's share or all upper wall cabinets to provide clean lines and a minimalist look.
When our clients opt for open shelves in place of upper wall cabinets or more streamlined looks, we often recommend taking advantage of organizational accessories to avoid countertop clutter. Commonly specified storage accessories may include plate racks, spice racks, pull out drawers and other organizing tools that provide designated places for small appliances, plates, glassware, cutlery, knives and other kitchen gadgets and accessories.
Color my sink world
The days of having to choose between stainless steel or white kitchen sink are over. Composite sinks that resist heat damage and scratching come in a rainbow of colors, sizes and configurations that can meet almost any style preference or design parameter. Sinks increasingly are serving as focal points with material options that span the imagination.
The right light
Homeowners are more frequently taking the use of pendants over islands up several notches by specifying a group of mini-pendants instead of a chandelier or to have a row of pendants installed at different heights.
