Matte Everything

Speaking of finishes … matte black entered the scene as a force to be reckoned. Whether you have a traditional, contemporary or modern design aesthetic, black cabinets, kitchen islands and back splashes are all pretty versatile. Leave the glossy finish behind in 2018 and opt instead for this cooler, more modern look. It’s chic and fashionable and it’s broken through the ultra “glam” vibe and added some much-needed modernity, even in more traditional spaces. Matte black is a trend we love to see stick around.

Focus on function

A beautiful kitchen may please the eye, but when it comes down to it, a kitchen’s function is its greatest value. For 2019, kitchens will blend form and function. Technology will become increasingly present, helping to make day to day life a little easier. Integrate these ideas for a kitchen that offers a maximum function for one of your home’s most-used spaces.

  • Declutter the counter tops. Consider incorporating pull-out and roll-out trays into your cabinetry to maximize your storage space, as well as dressing your cabinets with appropriate inserts and organizational kits. Eliminate wasted space by adding corner cabinets to utilize all your available space.
  • Determine the island’s function. The island is often the visual centerpiece of the kitchen, but determining its function can maximize its benefit. Fully functional cabinetry around the island can provide added storage space. For example, custom cabinetry appliance panels let you not only conceal bulky appliances, but they also give your wall cabinets more space and functionality.
  • Make recycling easy. Place the recycle and garbage bins in a drawer near the sink to allow for easier accessibility and keep them out of sight.

A final note, before you take the leap into upgrading your kitchen ask yourself what your goals are, what’s missing from your current kitchen design, and what you’d like to see go? A well-thought-out project is a well-executed project, so take your time to properly plan.
