Kitchen Remodel Design Ideas
There is a lot to consider when doing a kitchens remodel. From small to large kitchens here are some of the best design ideas and trends in 2019.
1) White with black accent island
All white kitchens have been popular for many years for a reason. A white kitchen looks clean and more open, which is perfect if you are working with a smaller space. Making the island a darker colour can keep the kitchen from looking too traditional and adds a nice contrast to white.
2) Granite or quartz countertops
Granite and quartz are great options for countertops because they come in a variety of different colours and styles and are low maintenance. Marble is not the best option for kitchens because it is porous therefore susceptible to staining and requires more maintenance than other options.
3) Subway tile backsplash
Subway tile is a very popular option for a kitchen backsplash. Not only does it offer a timeless look but even making a simple change such as changing the colour of the grout can give a different feel to the space.
4) Black stainless steel appliances
Stainless steel appliances are very common in kitchens and have a much more refined look than black or white appliances. Matte black stainless steel can be a stunning alternative to the standard stainless steel and give off a softer look as well as be more resistant to smudges and fingerprints.
5) Tile flooring
Don’t be afraid to go with bold, patterned tiles for your kitchen flooring. Having statement flooring can be a great option to liven up a neutral colour palette without being too busy.
Having a monochrome colour palette is very popular for kitchens. This is because it makes the room look more refined, bright, and open. Mixing and matching different finishes and textures can liven up a monochrome colour scheme and will keep the room from looking too plain.
7) Concealed storage
If you have a smaller kitchen, it’s ideal to use creative storage solutions in order to maximize space and still keep everything organized. Using lazy susans and clever drawer inserts inside cabinets can take advantage of normally unused space in hard to reach areas in corner cabinets.
8) Use of wood
The use of wood in kitchens is becoming more popular especially in contemporary kitchen designs. Wood is very versatile, with many different finishes and textures and can make any kitchen feel more warm and cozy.
9) Integrated appliances
Integrated appliances hides your appliances so the kitchen looks more clean and refined and are becoming more and more common. They can make your kitchen look more luxurious and creates more floor space as they don’t stick out beyond the counter.
10) Matte black fixtures
Along with matte black appliances, matte black fixtures have been on trend for a couple years and continue to be a popular option for a kitchen remodel. In an all white kitchen they can add some dimensions and be a nice alternative to the standard metallic finishes.
