The top 5 trends in kitchen remodeling

You’ve spent hours watching the latest home remodel shows, and now you are ready to take on your own kitchen remodel. But where do you start? What are the top trends and how do you create a functional space for your family to enjoy? 

At The Design House, our team is made of up of master designers and craftsmen who have more than 50 years of combined experience in the design and remodeling field. The kitchen is no longer just the space in the back of the house where the food is prepped. It’s where friends and family gather and connect.

Here are some of the top 5 trends in kitchen remodeling: 

Smart Kitchen 

Just like everything else in our world, technology is becoming one of the top trends in home remodel. In today’s kitchen, you can have technology integrated into every function of the space. You can have the faucet and other gadgets turned on by a sensor, or you can control the lights with your smartphone. One thing for new homeowners to consider is that most of the new smart kitchens are being created from the ground up versus adding features to the existing space of an older home. 

Cabinet Trends

For the past few years, it’s been all about the clean white lines and open shelving thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines, but 2019 may begin to see a greater trend in a variety of different colors or wood stain. The most popular shades will be hues of blue and green working with natural wood colors mixed with jewel tones. There will also be a huge shift to darker cabinets for rich elegance. For the modern kitchen, it’s all about catering to the individual and capturing their style. 

Personal Space for the Chef 

In today’s designs, it’s all about what the chef wants, whether it is creating cooking stations such as baking zones, food prep zones, storage and pantry zones, or a place for the laptop and other devices. There is also a huge trend to create a space that is functional and efficient to meet family needs. Popular dual appliances are cooktops, sinks, dishwashers, and refrigerator drawers placed in zones to provide faster cleanup and better storage. 

Effective Storage Trends 

The average home builder does not build with storage in mind. Most cabinets in the kitchen are, unfortunately, designed with wasted space rather than functionality. When considering a remodel, most homeowners redefine the space for better storage options that include space for small appliances, drawer dividers for cutlery and utensils, pull-outs for spices, tray dividers, roll-out trays and caddies for pots and pans, as well as wastebasket cabinets for garbage and recyclables and/or deep drawers.     

New Trends in Appliances 

It used to be the trend when buying a new house to have all the kitchen appliances match – preferably stainless steel. The latest trends in kitchen space are all about style and customization. Whatever your personality, your appliances can meet it. The options are endless in terms of design and style to meet the needs of you and your personality style.
