Interior design, like fashion, goes through many different changes and trends. Those styles that were considered cutting-edge can now be used to easily date your home. As the kitchen and bathroom are central to any home's aesthetic, keeping their style fresh and updated is essential for any modern Northern Virginia home. Many of the trends that were up-and-coming in 2018 have hit the design world in full force in 2019, and should be top contenders for any home renovation or new build. By keeping these styles in mind, you will ensure your home is well on the way to being the design marvel it should be.
Here are some of the newest trends for kitchens and bathrooms that will be coming in the next year.
One of the biggest ways to date your home, is by including stainless steel appliances in your kitchen. No longer are these appliances the top choice amongst interior designers. Instead, using the kitchen's refrigerator as a focal point of the room is a great way to bring an individual's unique style to the kitchen. While sometimes matching the refrigerator and the dishwasher to the kitchen cabinetry, the new trend is to use the fridge as an art piece, creating a unique look that is unmatched anywhere else in the room.
Top-of-the-line ovens with jewel-toned enamel designs are also a popular choice by many of today's interior designers. Having a stove with a stylized cook top and matching hood will bring your kitchen in line with 2019's trends.
Although trends over the past few years have leaned more toward gold accents, gold is officially taking over in 2019. From faucets, to shower heads, cabinet knobs, and even backsplashes, gold is thecolor for 2019. Adding even the smallest gold to your kitchen design will ensure it is on trend for many years to come.
For awhile, designers and homeowners alike steered clear of black, as it was thought to close in spaces and make a home feel less inviting. Now, however, with the trend toward minimalism and clean lines, black is making a resurgence. Using black to make a strong accent wall or a focal feature is a popular choice, as is pairing it with warm, natural wood colors and golden accents.
Speaking of which…
Gone is the desire for a pure white kitchen, or even using white fixtures in the bathroom. Now, the trend is to go more natural with a room's look, opting for woods or wood finishes for cabinets, backsplashes, and even flooring. Additionally, jewel-toned colors are also being used to bring excitement into a room and to create an interesting environment for homeowners and visitors, alike.
Overall, the trends of 2019 for bathrooms and kitchens are leaning toward a minimalistic design with interesting focal points. Metallic accents, bright colors, and natural woods are all going to be big in the coming years. Kitchens will no longer have top cabinets, but tiled backsplashes will make the space intriguing. Sinks are also another great statement piece, with newer sinks taking up their own space in the kitchen design.
