What Are The Best Kitchen Design Ideas For 2019 In Boca Raton?

Come the New Year, come the time when we start to think about our homes, and if it is about time that certain aspects need an upgrade. One of the places that many people start is the kitchen, largely because over the last twenty years or so it has become much more than just the room where we cook and maybe do the laundry. Today, some families almost live in their kitchens. Not only do they cook and eat there but sit back and relax and watch the TV after dinner. We also entertain our family and friends there. The dining room has almost gone out of date.

So if you are one of the Boca Raton residents considering high-end kitchen remodeling, Boca Raton, you need to find out what are the latest trends in design. Here at Custom Artisan Cabinetry we obviously keep our fingers on the pulse and can update you with the current inclinations.

One of the first things to consider is color. In years gone by, the kitchen was white, but that is no longer the case. Color is coming back into fashion, and the latest trends for 2019 are blues and greens. An earthy terracotta can also make a dramatic impact, but one thing that does seem to be important is a matte finish. No longer is everything shiny – matte is the “in” thing. This goes for faucets and other hardware too. Shiny chrome faucets are out, and in come matte brass finishes and also matte pewter and gunmetal. The latter are considered to be not as harsh as black, nor as specific as brass or gold, but give the fittings some depth and texture.

Of course, you don’t have to have the whole kitchen colored if you don’t wish to. You can have a dot of color here and there, such as a coloured leather seat on stools or a choice of quartz counter tops on work surfaces and islands.

Natural wood is also making a comeback in high-end kitchen remodeling, Boca Raton. Cabinetry can be of light wood shades – even reclaimed wood – but the trend is for wood with plenty of knots and grain showing. These are natural patterns and tend to break up the appearance of straight outlines that stand out on cabinets and islands.

Lighting is important too. The trend for 2019 is towards hanging pendant lamps. According to designer Katharine Pooley ” Anchoring the dining area will be particularly important, and sculptural jewelry, like pendants in hard finishes with a mid-century Italian influence, will be popular in luxury developments.”

Custom Bathroom Remodeling

What’s New In Boca Raton Bathrooms for 2109?

It is at this time of year that we look back and take stock of what we did or didn’t achieve in 2018 and decide that the things we didn’t achieve are definitely going to happen in 2019. As with many New Year’s resolutions, not all of them will happen in 2019 either, but one thing that many folks are planning on doing is high-end bathroom remodeling, Boca Raton. After all, many of us spend more time in the bathroom than we used to, soaking in the hot tub, and some have even installed TV in the bathroom.

So what are the trends for high-end bathroom remodeling, Boca Raton, for 2019? Subway tiles have been around for years and they measure 3″ x 6″ and are white, aren’t they? Not any longer, subway tiles are changing sizes and even shapes, and they don’t have to be white. You can have subway tiles in a whole range of colors. They are now on every surface of the bathroom, and it is one way to upgrade the bathroom without breaking the bank. Just one word of warning: keep them all the same color. Don’t go mixing and matching.

Ledges

Another trend for 2019 is the use of ledges for storage. They can fit on to the wall and you can have them in almost any material, but plain wood is making its’ way into the bathroom. A light wood with heavy grains and knots has a pleasing effect, and it is also being used for vanities. If you fit a ledge to the wall you can lower the top three inches inside the frame and make it from glass so that it can be underlit. Not only can your store bits and pieces, but you can add a plant or two here and there.

For many years, unless your name was Trump, shiny chrome used to be the material of choice for metal bathroom fixtures such as faucets, shower heads, and so on, but according to Houzz, matte nickel is now in first place, being the choice for 38% of bathroom remodels in 2018. It can be brushed or satin. Shiny chrome dropped to second place with 28%. An advantage of this type of finish is that it doesn’t show smudges and finger marks as chrome does.

Another trend for high-end bathroom remodeling, Boca Raton, is the mirror. For a long time, they have been just rectangular pieces of glass, sometimes with a plain frame around and sometimes no frame. For 2019 the trend is towards a mirror with an ornate frame – and the more ornate the better. Your mirror doesn’t have to be rectangular either: it can be round, oval, or one of many other shapes.

Trends In Kitchen Cabinetry Going Into 2019

If you are planning to renew your kitchen in 2019 you are probably mulling over some ideas just at the moment. There are several trends that you might want to consider, keeping in mind that you have to live with your kitchen for several years, so it has to be something that you love rather than doing something just because it is a trend at the moment.

One of the trends in high end kitchen cabinetry, Boca Raton, FL, is multi-colored units rather than the “all in one” look that we have seen in the past. Although keeping the cabinets a matching color outside, people are putting different colors on the inside panels of the doors. So you might have light green panels on the outside, with dark green on the inside. A somewhat quirky variation is having completely different contrasting panels such as the light green outside and blue inside.

Keeping in mind that many kitchens are quite small, lighter colors such as light green, primrose, or light gray, will give the kitchen the impression of more space.

Open Shelving

One trend is for open shelving as opposed to everything in cabinets. A tall, narrow set of shelving can be used for items that you use often, or you could use some of the shelves for display. You might even site the shelving near to a window and you could keep pots of herbs on it. Pretty as well as practical.

One of the biggest trends in high end kitchen cabinetry, Boca Raton, FL, this year has been hiding the appliances. The fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine, and so on, are now hiding behind cabinet doors which match the rest of the kitchen, giving an appearance of much cleaner lines.

If you have a small kitchen you probably always wish you had more storage space, and a way to achieve this is to extend the cabinetry upwards – to the ceiling if you wish. Rather than having a large trim around the top of the cabinets with some empty space that becomes cluttered up with odds and ends – and also dust – you can make much better use of those few extra inches.

Smarter storage is also a trend in high end kitchen cabinetry in Boca Raton, FL. Drawers now have dividers which are built in, rather than going to the store and buying plastic dividers for cutlery and so on. Many people are also installing a wine cabinet, albeit slim, to house the ever-increasing number of bottles of wine in US homes.

One other trend in high end cabinetry is the use of quartz for counter tops. Unlike marble and granite, quartz isn’t porous, so spills won’t stain it.

Trends In Kitchen Renovation In Boca Raton For 2018

Renovating your kitchen in Boca Raton in 2018 is not going to be cheap. A recent study showed that minor renovations to a small kitchen currently average around $13,700 while at the other end of the scale major refurbishment to a large kitchen is averaging about $42,000. It follows that if you are going to be spending that sort of money you will want the refit to be on trend so that it will last for many years.

The most money is spent on countertops, appliances, and high end kitchen cabinetry in Boca Raton, while homeowners tend to economise on flooring, light fixtures, windows, and backsplashes.

The most usual upgrades are countertops which are the first thing to go, no less than 94% of homeowners replacing them, and in 2018 engineered quartz is taking the top spot, pushing granite off the map over the last two years or so. Over 80% of people also change sinks, backsplashes, faucets, wall finishing, light fixtures, and cabinets in that order.

Kitchen Layout

What is interesting is that the “U” shape of the kitchen layout with units on three sides is reducing in popularity in favour of an “L” shaped layout, the “U” shape having been in fashion for many years. Galley and single wall layouts are also increasing. Just over half of all kitchens are now opened to another room in the home by knocking down a wall, while a quarter retain the wall but insert double doors.

As in the past, the majority of people – 63% – are most concerned with storage, and high end kitchen cabinetry in Boca Raton is a priority. Rather than having solid doors to cabinets, a lot of people are changing over to glass, as things can be seen easily, which is what most people want. With a little thought you can arrange china and other items so that they become a decorative feature rather than having them hidden away.

While storage is top of the list, most homeowners also want a room that is easy to work and live in, and also easy for entertaining. More people than ever are entertaining guests in the kitchen rather than in a separate dining room.

Homeowners are also opting for a transitional style in the kitchen, combining the best of the traditional with a blend of modern styles. Nonetheless there has been an increase in all-contemporary styling, while farmhouse and traditional are once again catching up.

As for appliances, stainless steel is by far and away the most popular followed by white. For high end kitchen cabinetry in Boca Raton, white is also most favored as it is for backsplashes. Countertops are split between multi-colored as in quartz for instance, and white, while for flooring natural wood is clearly the most popular. The lead choice for walls in 2018 is gray, again followed by white.

High End Custom Kitchen Cabinetry

High End Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinetry

Simply put; the kitchen is the soul of the Home. It is where the nourishment comes from. Food is essential in everyday living. Your cabinetry should reflect these ideals. CAC designs kitchens in the most practical way. We handle kitchen projects with 3 things in mind. Food handling, cooking and cleaning. We break down the kitchen into these 3 main concepts, so we can understand how people and things flow in and out of the kitchen.

First things first. Food handling.
When it comes to food handling, we think of 2 main components. Your fridge and your pantry. We strive for these two components to stay together. When pantries and refrigerators are paired together, it makes for a very convenient kitchen because all the food is together in one place. No need to scramble or move from one end of the kitchen to the other. It needs to be simple and it needs to be accessible.

Next steps: Cooking.
Cooking refers to any area that is destined to prep, cook and cool down food. First thing to consider in this step is where the cooktops and oven will go. It is a good idea to keep them within close range. At CAC we always consider the appliance type that the client has in mind and we make suggestions/modifications based on the space available. Proper ventilation is always considered at this step (making sure a hood or downdraft is accounted for). Microwave placement is a very important part of this phase. The trick with getting microwave placement right is to make sure its accessible by everyone without disrupting the cook.

Cleaning:
At CAC we make sure your cleaning area and dishwasher are accounted for. Also, at this step we ensure that cleaning supplies have a dedicated place in the kitchen for easy access. Making sure you place the trashcans properly also is a key factor in considering all the cleaning needs of a kitchen.

Once we identify these key areas, we translate them onto a floorplan which we then use to the design the leftover storage areas and move on to aesthetics. CAC has a systematic approach to custom kitchen cabinetry projects. It must be functional, it has to be beautiful and it will be built the right way.

custom build home bars

Custom-Built Home Bars: Unparalleled Luxury and Style

Having a custom-built home bar is a staple in many homes today. We like to think its because most our customers enjoy entertaining their guest with a drink. CAC has been offering Custom Bars for our customers for many years. It’s the personal approach that makes us unique in designing cabinetry for this type of room.

We start the process by assessing the customers wants and needs. We take inventory of what needs to be stored and displayed in the bar. We take in consideration liquor, glassware, barware, appliances and anything that the customer requests. Once we have a clear understanding of our customers needs, we make suggestions and design together with the client.

Wine storage is in high demand. Our customer’s need for proper wine storage is something that we always take into consideration. We are proud to offer custom made solutions to many of our customer’s wine storage needs.

Materials to be selected for a custom bar need to have a certain level of water resistance. CAC is proud to offer high end material selections that will conform to these specifications. CAC conducts extensive testing and we are constantly incorporating new materials that will provide different textures, finishes and styles that can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Crystal and glass storage is also another key feature of the bars that CAC builds. We always take in consideration the crystal storage as a critical part of crating a properly functioning bar. Lighting can be incorporated into crystal cabinets to accentuate and beautify them.
