It’s one of the busiest rooms in the house, so it’s natural that you want your kitchen to look its best. Whether you’re cooking up a storm every night for the family or entertaining friends at the weekend, whether you like it or not, your kitchen is on show. Time for a makeover? Don’t pick up a paintbrush until you speak to the experts at Koval Building Supply and find out all the latest trends in kitchens this year.
Backsplash Feature Wall
Gone are the days of a few tiles behind the hob, kitchen design is all about making a statement and backsplashes are being tiled all the way up to the ceiling in high-end kitchens. It’s a clever trick – choose your tiles correctly for your kitchen design and this clever technique can make small kitchens appear bigger and in larger kitchens make a real standout feature.
Dark colors aren’t going away and they’re huge for kitchen remodels in 2019. Dark navy, grey and forest green – even black – accessorized with gold or brass hardware and fixtures have a really rich feel for high-end kitchens.
Kitchen remodels are the ideal time to think about built-in bench seating with cabinetry that also provides storage space underneath. If your kitchen design doesn’t have the budget for bespoke carpentry, bench pieces of furniture still have the same look.
From traditional to modern kitchen remodels, these days kitchen designers are harking back to cooker hood designs that are less hard and industrial and more artful looking.
Keep crockery and vases out in the open, displayed on shelves, to give a carefully curated – and very personal – feel to your kitchen design. Gather together beautiful plates, ceramics or craftwork of any kind. It ties in perfectly with the artisan trends for this year.
Wood and White
Two-tone kitchens are the future with natural wood leading the way, especially in high-end kitchens. Think wooden doors with white countertops or vice versa for a clean, modern look.
Gone are the days of matching finishes – think a mixture of brass, pewter, and copper, with silver too, for a striking, organic look. That’s not just for seating and lighting, there are hammered copper sinks that look particularly earthy next to a sandstone or granite countertop.
The texture and tone of hand-crafted tiles add to the current trend for all things organic that make every kitchen design quite unique.
