Kitchen Trends That Will Come To An End In 2019
As we approach the new year, many homeowners will use this as an opportunity to spruce up their home and make some changes. If you’re planning on having a new kitchen installation in Dorset, here are some things you might want to avoid this year – as these trends are well and truly over.
1) No to open shelves
In the last couple of years, open shelving had become hugely popular, with this look adding a rustic appeal to a kitchen. However, 2019 is all about being practical as well as stylish, and having open shelves simply does not provide as much storage space as traditional cabinets.
Speaking with RealSimple.com, Trulia design panel expert Layne Brookshire said: “It has finally been around long enough to convince everyone of its aesthetic appeals and its life-practicality fail.”
If homeowners were to store everything they needed to on the shelves, their kitchen would just end up looking cluttered and untidy.
2) No to everything matching
When designing a room, we are used to trying to find everything that matches with regards to colour, theme and style. However, this isn’t something we have to worry about next year, as the mismatched look will be on trend.
Stephanie Graham, a showroom manager for Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, told Forbes that mixing styles is growing in popularity, with ombre and rose gold features to be seen more and more in kitchens in the future.
3) No to old-fashioned kitchens
Having a traditional country kitchen has been popular among householders for decades – even those who reside in busy cities! However, this year we will finally embrace the modern look and opt for elements more fitting with the age.
Kitchens will be minimal, with clean lines, matte black tiles and lots of high-tech appliances, enabling people to make the most of modern technology when they’re cooking.
