Kitchens will incorporate more technology
It doesn’t take an expert to know that technology is in high demand in many industries. However, in the world of design some trends have started to see this reduced. As homeowners become wary of entirely automating their homes, they begin to look to more classic elements. This has not yet been seen in kitchens.
In fact, we have seen homeowners moving toward smart kitchen technology at breakneck speed. This includes smart appliances, motion sensors, smart lighting, and much more. It can cost a pretty penny to completely outfit a kitchen with the latest in technology, but replacing one appliance at a time can be a cost-effective option for some homeowners.
Warm kitchen floors
Kitchens have always been a room in the home that families tend to flock around. However, until recent years ensuring comfort as a part of a kitchen’s design has not been a priority. This is changing. We are seeing a lot of ways in which kitchens are becoming cozier, including adding warm floors. A popular choice are high-quality hardwood floors that add elegance and style too.
For homeowners building a kitchen from scratch, there may be additional layout options in 2019. Traditional kitchens are designed in the way they are for a reason – these layouts are tried and true. However, we’re seeing homes with fridges in corners, appliances on the opposite side of where we’d expect, and even a return to the galley-style kitchens.
Eclectic color combinations
Bold and colorful kitchens are likely to be all the rage in 2019. From colorful and unique appliances, to hand painted tiles that create a mosaic masterpiece, there seems to be no shortage of ways in which designers are finding ways to add splashes of color all over the kitchen.
