Trends: discovering what is new and exciting is always kind of interesting whether you’re in the market for a change or not. Some designer’s go to furniture markets twice a year every year, which can be quite a feat, even for seasoned veteran’s. But, that’s just one of the areas where you can see the newest in home decor for the CONSUMER.
I LOVE hearing about the latest design trends! But many will still prefer to opt out of trends! Why? Well, mainly because they’re a lot of tried and true preferred traditional styling for the home. Usually, those who prefer traditional decor prefer the CLASSICS…hoping there will be less of a chance of having a date stamp on the items they buy. Unfortunately, no matter when you buy a traditional piece or any other particular “style” direction…your lucky if you get a good 10, the most 15 years out of it…before it starts to look old and dated.
My personal style direction is a decor of mixed fushion when styling a home. I like to combine the new feels with the old (vintage) for that eclectic look. But my vintage pieces will still need to have updated fabrics on them. Otherwise, it’s just an old sofa, chair or bench!
I feel that no matter what your preferred design direction is traditional, new traditional, mid-century, modern, or just that fabulous “lived in look.” Having an updated kitchen and bath are the major go too’s for that FRESH and fabulous look, plus it’s great for resale.
With that stated, even though these photos depict a more modern aesthetic, there are ways to incorporate modern touches to ALL design styles and feel. So with that said…here is what HOT and new for KITCHENS 2019 and going forward.
Unique or hidden vent hoods!
Flat front cabinets…with hidden or no hardware!
Waterfall countertops on islands…LOVE 4″ depth myself!
Continous sinks (LOVING the concrete) with light to medium wood tone cabinets. And of course still seeing painted cabinets too!
LOVING the white subway tile…so fresh and classic!
WALLS…not just backsplashes…of marble! Chevron floors!
Float cabinetry and use mixed metals! This is my favorite way of doing mixed metal look, use black or oil rubbed bronze combined with a gold or a silver!
