We’re half-way 2019, but it’s never too late to renovate your kitchen! You read that correctly! You can now start preparing to welcome the new year this early because let’s face it, construction and renovation don’t happen overnight.
We’ve come up with kitchen renovation ideas you can do to give your kitchen a facelift. If you love to be on-trend, especially with your interiors, then you’d find these tips helpful. So, let’s start!
Conceal and Feel
We’re not done with smart storage and concealed compartments in the kitchen. It’s still a favorite trend and designers agree that this will be a staple in interior design.
Cabinets and storage that looks like a wall is a favorite by a lot of homeowners. However, if you still have handles on your cabinets, then you can start camouflaging it.
You don’t have to bring down all your cabinets, especially if these are still functional. You can start by repainting your cabinets and handles to create a seamless effect on your storage.
Countertops are Still In
We have seen various countertops materials that come and go, but the ultimate material is quartz. We see this in almost all homes. The majority of homeowners prefer this material because of its timeless look and its virtually indestructible.
Quartz had replaced granite in the countertop-materials-game. Though it has been popular in the early 2000s, the materials have been tagged as ‘ordinary.’ Aside from this, it’s also a porous material that can collect bacteria, especially if you don’t have the proper equipment to take care of it.
Mood is the New Color
When we talk about interior, regardless of any room, wall colors are the first thing that goes in our mind. The majority of us consider colors as the element that sets the mood of the room.
However, designers beg to disagree on this idea. Yes, colors play an essential role in setting the mood of your kitchen, but your lighting changes everything, too.
Specifically, white walls are out, and earth tones and warm lights set the mood now. Look into combing vibrant colors and adding hidden lighting fixtures to evoke a positive vibe in your kitchen.
Organic Tiles are In
Geometric cement tiles are starting to become outdated. Though it’s fun and gives a pop of color in your kitchen, especially in your backsplash, it has become repetitive.
So what’s new?
If you’re planning to change your backsplash, then go with handmade and organic tiles. These are great alternatives to cement tiles, especially if it gives off a handmade-from-France look.
However, if you still want a safer option, you can opt to use white subway tiles. To add a little drama, you can choose bigger or longer sizes.
Mix and Match
Gone are the days of matching everything in your kitchen, from paint colors to utensils, we’ve surpassed the standard matchy interiors. Now, we can celebrate imbalance and juxtapositions in your kitchen cabinets, appliances, etc.
Mix and match designs in different directions. You can use kitchen furniture to be expressive, or you can also change your tiles to add more color to your kitchen.
Seriously, the sky’s the limit when it comes to mixing and matching your kitchen interior.
End of an Era for Stainless Steel
Stainless steel appliances are becoming more repetitive in every kitchen, and that’s why designers and homeowners are welcoming patterned appliances.
From kettle to plates, and even refrigerator, patterned appliances are invading our homes. These have become conversation starter pieces, and others consider it as a break to the monotony of colors in their kitchen.
Take a look at your kitchen, what do you think can you change to add a little pop in your interior, furniture, or appliances? Don’t forget to share your ideas!
