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 The dining room has almost gone out of date.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.”
