Seven Top Kitchen Trends from Kitchen Walk 2019
1. PERSONALIZATION AND CUSTOMIZATION
Personalization of space is one of the biggest design trends you will see at New Moms’ Kitchen Walk. No longer is there a distinct design style on display everywhere! It’s all about making your home uniquely tailored to your own distinct tastes as owner, both functionally and aesthetically.
2. ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IS KEY
We are seeing more emphasis on unique architectural spaces and details, and less cabinetry as part of this year’s kitchen designs. Less wall cabinets and more windows and furniture, giving kitchens the feeling of a “living room” not just a place where food is prepped.
3. MAXIMALISM IS STARTING TO EMERGE
This year’s kitchens are bolder, with more detail and color, including mixed metals, wallpapers, and interesting patterns rather than the simple clean lines and neutral colors of the past.
4. LOW MAINTENANCE COUNTERTOPS
Manufactured quartz countertops are all the rage! Granite is on the wane and homeowners are selecting quartz countertops to replace natural stone, enabling them to customize the look they seek while benefiting from its low-maintenance attributes.
Along with manufactured surfaces is the rise in Quartzite, a beautiful, natural stone that is very non-porous and able to weather stains, while offering low maintenance.
5. SMART APPLIANCES
More and more smart appliances are emerging in the kitchen with new technology, smartphone apps and Wi-Fi connectivity common. The connected home is the next area of focus for the kitchen, and many appliance manufacturers are introducing smart appliances that create a higher level of convenience for the home cook.
6. INTERIOR STORAGE IS KING
With the increase of architectural spaces, more windows and less wall cabinets, unique interior storage applications are critical to adequate storage solutions. Drawers have become more popular because of their ergonomic benefits and user-friendly nature, versus doors with a shelf inside. The industry is providing many new interior features that make each cabinet work harder and be more efficient!
7. FARMHOUSE AND TRANSITIONAL STYLING STILL STRONG
Traditional kitchens are on the decline and are being replaced by transitional looks and farmhouse casual looks with organic details. And, while high tech is in, kitchen design increasingly channels an organic cozy look. The rise of “Hygge” is a very important trend in the industry. Hygge is a Danish term that defines the desire to create cozy contentment and well-being through simple and clean décor in your home, and its popularity is in response to the intensity of the high-tech culture we have created.
