Cabinet Trends for 2019
Early into the new year and we are already seeing new trends for kitchens. Kitchen cabinetry is not just for storage but an essential element of style. Cabinetry can help bring a room together. Even though, cabinet designs have not had a dramatic change over the past few years like countertops or flooring, they are still changes for kitchen cabinets.
To design the perfect kitchen, it is important to understand what homeowners are looking for and trends to be aware of. Learn more about trends that will dominate kitchen cabinetry design in 2019.
While traditional white kitchens are a classic, many homeowners are beginning to incorporate colored cabinets in their kitchens. Colored cabinets will make a statement while creating a welcoming and warm mood. Colors in high demand that help create a statement are blues, grey-washed blues or hunter greens. Homeowners are using brass and other contrasting metals in their fixtures and hardware to complement the colored cabinetry.
In 2019 the captivating trend of sultry black matte cabinets will make their mark. Black finishes are a way to add some drama without fully darkening the kitchen. The matte blacks are contrasted by rich coffee browns, shades of grey, taupe and biscuit beige.
Increase of Oak Wood
Homeowners are slowly connecting to past trends and wanting to give their kitchen a vintage look. Creeping back into trend this year will be oak wood cabinetry and driftwood finishes. The neutral color, dimension and texture with a soft luxury feel that can be layered to create a blended balance.
The oak cabinetry is a versatile look for themes from seaside or a clean modern simplicity or a common rustic look. Manufacturers are crafting a variety of door styles from panels to flat slabs using an oak finish. Homeowners favor wood cabinetry because they can leave it in their natural color or opt to give it a coat of paint.
Out with Upper Cabinets
A slow quiet trend that is making its way into homes is the no upper cabinet trend. The days of kitchens with wraparound counters and upper cabinets are fading away. Homeowners are looking for a way to have their kitchens look as clean as possible. The best way to achieve an openness is to eliminate upper cabinets. Kitchens may feature a floor-to ceiling storage place, like a butler’s pantry. This will allow additional storage while still looking clean.
Removing upper cabinets limits areas to store kitchen ware like cups, bowls and plates. This is where shelving in the kitchen come into place. Metal shelving is on a rise for homeowners. We have seen in the past wood shelves as a standard in the kitchen. Now, wood is being replaced by black metal shelves to give the kitchen an attitude, style and flexibility. Open shelving introduces a light and airy feeling offering the illusion of more space which is ideal in smaller kitchens.
