- Works in Progress
Whether your kitchen is for cooking or just for hosting guests and eating takeout, it is the most active space in your home and a reflection of your style. If your kitchen is due for an update, you might be scouring Pinterest or Better Homes and Gardens for inspiration. To make things a little easier, we’ve curated a brief list of our favorite kitchen trends of 2019 for you to implement in this year’s kitchen remodel.
Ready to get started on designing your dream kitchen? Corey-Built offers high-end renovation near Doylestown, Buckingham, and Chalfont, PA. Bring founder Chris Corey’s attention to detail and years of experience to your kitchen remodel today!
Now, there are a lot of ideas out there, so we’ve picked a few that we think will look fantastic and last through the decade:
Bringing raw and natural textures into your kitchen space is an element that will last through the changing fads. Shiplap has gained popularity as a favorite among Fixer Upper fans, though you don’t have to have a farmhouse to use it. It can serve as a rustic accent to an otherwise modern or industrial theme.
Stone can also pull the essence of nature into your kitchen. We’ve seen natural stones in backsplashes and hood vents, and using a smooth stone for your countertops is a stylish and sturdy choice.
Watch out, folks! Colored cabinetry is back with a modern twist. We’re not talking the rose pink of the 1950s (though it was a good look at the time). Unexpected colors—mint especially—are now popular on cabinets, while neutrals appear in countertops and hardware. However, if you want to play it safe, you can always keep the top cabinets white or black and go bold with the island and lower cabinets. Colorful cabinetry adds an unforgettable quality to your space that will delight you and your guests.
The open shelving trend is exploding with the new minimalist movement. By keeping your cabinets free of those pesky doors, your gorgeous tableware becomes the décor. While some might argue that open shelving looks cluttered and busy, it truly creates a calmer, more laid-back aesthetic by simplifying your space. If you want your kitchen remodel to incorporate this relaxed—but functional—feature, Corey-Built can design shelves customized for your home.
Along with open shelving, designers and homeowners are using up every nook and cranny of cabinet space to create practical storage options. Some tall, skinny cabinets are secretly vertical drawers that can be the perfect spot for your cookie sheets and cooling racks. We can design cabinets with spice racks built into the doors to optimize your kitchen’s organizational capacity.
No matter what trend you decide to use in your new kitchen remodel, these ideas will be as timeless as hardwood floors. Corey-Built, Inc. has an eye for design and can help guide your kitchen renovation every step of the way.
