We’ve scoured our favorite home design blogs to see what the predictions are for 2019 home design trends. Some trends, such as patterned tile and raw materials, our clients have been mastering for a while now. In fact, we installed patterned tile in almost every new construction or remodel we completed in 2018 (and many in 2017).
Read with caution, however. Doing away with upper cabinets in an historic remodel is a tough call and one we could never recommend if you are short on space. Your home should always fit your needs!
Our new construction homes at Gateway Village in Denison, Texas will have a more “modern” farmhouse feel than any we’ve built before and I could see these trends complimenting their design. Either way, our preferred designer can help you incorporate a cabinet color or source a colored appliance for you.
In the end, trends are fun, but should always be at the mercy of good design and functionality; absolutely NEVER the other way around!
More Color In the Kitchen. Oh boy. We’d thought we’d start with the one that would give us the hardest time! Everyone knows how much we love an all white kitchen, right? Well, according to designers, the monotone look is out. Try painting cabinets a color or adding in a colored tile backsplash. These are great trends to follow because they won’t break the bank in the future if you want to change them!
Matte Black. Stainless steel gets a matte black make-over, and we are loving it. Crossing over to the dark side it is!
3. Appliances With Color. If matte black isn’t your thing, maybe try appliances with color and even pattern. European brands have always had color as an option and we think this is a fun trend to follow.
4. Patterns are IN. Textured, flowered wallpaper and patterned tile are still in. We installed patterned floor tile in almost every home we remodeled or built in 2018. Designers are predicting more of the same for 2019.
5. Raw Materials. If the all white kitchen is out, thank goodness raw materials are still in! Reclaimed wood and raw stone are having their heyday. Looks like we’ve been on this trend for quite a while!
6. Digital Technology. Smart homes are happening! We’ve partnered with an award winning home technology company to make every Integrity Custom home a smart home. Audio Video Innovations keeps us and our clients up to date on the latest home technology trends and advances.
7. Leather Drawer Pulls. Small touches like this make a huge impact. We would love to find a local McKinney artist who hand makes leather drawer pulls. If you have a referral, please send them our way!
8. Minimalist Kitchens. Still no upper cabinets. If remodeling or building, consider adding a butler’s pantry or incorporating an antique armoire for more storage space.
