These Kitchen & Bath Trends: Stylish or No?Posted by: Kat Wiseman
We're powering right through 2018, which means 2019 trends are starting to show up in new home plans as well as in homes prepping for a remodel!
Here are six of the top trends for kitchens and bathrooms as shown at the 2018 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). What do you think: stylish or no?
Metallic Specialty Sinks
Bright metallic sinks that feature hammered finishes, intricate details, and gold are bigger than ever! In the interior design world, this trend has been getting stronger over the past couple of years. Now, manufacturers like Kohler, Kallista Plumbing, and Thompson Traders are offering options matching this style, so it's clear to see this trend is full speed ahead.
Bye-bye Stainless Steel
At some point in the last decade, stainless steel became the go-to for kitchen appliances. But for 2019, it's on its way out. Gone are the days of all matching appliances in one color; now, it's all about high style and rich hues.
Cabinets: Less is More
As the minimalist movement takes shape, homeowners are wanting their spaces to appear as clean and open as possible. And a way to achieve an openness that's been gaining speed over the past few years is the no upper cabinet trend. If you want to nix the cabinets but need the storage space, black metal shelves are a kitchen trend that shows off attitude, style, and flexibility.
Black is the New Gray
Gray is on its way out and black is coming back in. Black brings sharp contrast to kitchens and bathrooms devoid of color. It also creates an elegant space in a way no other hue can. Combine it with warm chestnut wood and gold finishes for an updated twist on this classic trend.
Gold is Back & Bigger Than Ever
This trend may bring up bad memories of that house you bought with top to bottom brass everything, a big trend in the 1990s. But this metallic favorite is fresh and new! Manufacturers are creating gold patinas, rose golds, black golds, bright golds and mixing them with high-end appliances and raw organics.
Showers with Attitude
The new statement piece in the bathroom is a shower enclosure, and there's no better way to jump on this trend than with eye-catching doors. Bold designs, window panes, and color grids are just a few examples shown at the KBIS of how to utilize this trend.
So what do you think? Will you be including any of these trends in your upcoming renovations?
