Kitchen Remodeling Design Trends

“ Life is hectic enough, so we’re pretty chuffed that this year’s kitchens are soulful and quiet,” the experts at HGTV say. What does that mean in terms of design elements? According to HGTV, the emphasis will be on:

  • Pared-back cabinetry
  • Quality materials
  • A general salt-of-the-earth feel
  • Use of mixed metals, especially black
  • Curated wares

We definitely know all about quality materials, but we weren’t quite sure what they meant by “curated wares.” Fortunately, they offered a nice explanation – and you won’t need our help in pulling it off.  

“For a curated feel in the kitchen, stash your crocks, vases (and that colorful tagine you picked up in Morocco) out in the open,” they say. “Collections – especially handmade, sustainable pieces – speak to the artisan trend that’s hot going into 2019.”

If the artisan trend isn’t a good fit for you and your family, you may want to consider industrial countertops. “We’ll be seeing tons of textural surfaces such as concrete — or amazing riffs on the real thing,” HGTV says. 

If you’re a fan of mixing things up, there are some interesting trends you might want to explore. “Into this year, we’ll see more two-tone kitchens,” the HGTV experts predict. Imagine natural wood door and drawer fronts below paired with white countertops and open shelving above.

Mixed metals are also in the forecast. “Brass was the favorite in 2018, but the golden child isn’t alone anymore,” the experts say. “Black, pewter, copper and brass are commingling for a striking, organic look.” 

Of course, when it comes to your kitchen or bathroom remodeling project, it doesn’t matter what the “experts” say. The only voice Tim Foley, a licensed Suffolk County contractor who takes pride in his craftsmanship, will listen to is yours.
