6 Top Trends in Kitchen Design We’re Cooking Up in 2019
We tend to resist the word “trend” around Debowsky Design Group. Timeless
design is our thing, especially in the kitchen. Because, even though we do our
best to make the process enjoyable, we’re pretty sure our clients don’t want to
remodel every two years.
No one does.
Luckily for us all, the 2019 kitchen design leanings are both fresh and
enduring. No fly-by-nights here.
Let’s take a look at our favorites:
Digital Appliances. Tech-integrated kitchens
are cool, from motion sensing faucets to lighting. You haven’t lived until
you’ve pre-ordered your morning macchiato from your phone in bed only to have
it waiting for you in the kitchen by the time you stumble downstairs. Bonus
points for being able to check the fridge contents from the grocery store and
enjoying a single pour from your wine fridge. Can’t decide between a Chardonnay
and a Pinot Noir? You don’t have to.
Bespoke walls of storage. Great news for those clients who never fully embraced the visual chaos
of open shelving! Stunning floor-to-ceiling cabinetry really streamline the
look of any kitchen, replacing the need for appliance garages and pantries.
Statement appliances. Maybe the perfect foil to a smart kitchen is an appliance that looks more
like art, from Viking and Miele to Sub-Zero and La Cornue. Think of them like a
Birkin bag handed down from your grandmother. They’ll never go out of style.
Trough sinks. The name implies a
rustic element, but don’t be fooled: We’re talking about a versatile sink that
moonlights as a champagne bath. 2019 is bringing it in kitchen ideas.
No more traditional hardware. Or, none at all. Clients agonize over hardware: “Does it
match the rest of the house? Must it match the rest of the house?” We’re seeing
less gold and silver, and more organic materials like leather, as well as
streamlined inset handles and cutouts.
Broken-plan living. You’ve heard of open
floor plans, but the latest iteration is merging hard-working, multi-purpose
furniture that easily blends kitchen and living, with leveled, asymmetrical
layouts and room-defining dividers. Yeah. It’s complicated, but very, very
There’s more. Like, one-material counters, backsplashes, and
shelves. Statement hoods. Free-standing islands. And we can’t forget the
addition of glass walls and doors. Clients are loving connecting their kitchens
to outdoor spaces.
We could do this all day. And, we do. Come see us for your
free consultation and let’s get started on a kitchen fit for 2019 and beyond.
