2019 Interior Design Trends for Kitchens

Your kitchen, depending on how much you cook, is probably one of the rooms you spend the most time in. It makes sense that an updated kitchen is one of the first things that people look at when redesigning their homes. If you’re thinking about redesigning your kitchen in 2019, it’s a good idea to look at some of the latest trends if you want some inspiration. Today in the Ellecor Interior Design blog, we’ll be looking at some of the hottest kitchen trends for this year.

Light Colors are Out, Dark Colors Are In

White kitchens have been a staple for a while now but, in 2019, many experts see a trend toward darker, more dramatic-looking kitchens. Of course, there are still plenty of ways to make a darker colored kitchen feel open and airy. It all depends on how you use the colors and which colors you choose. Dark colors also add a dramatic and elegant touch to the kitchen area, which is something you and your guests are sure to enjoy.

Tons of Storage

Open shelving looks great, in theory, but it’s not the most practical trend. In 2019, people are going to go back to appreciating their storage space. Whether you’re the organized type or messier, it’s nice to have everything tucked away and out of sight. Especially if you have plenty of space to put these items in. One of the best examples of this is the trend toward storage walls, with entire sections of the kitchen dedicated to large towers of cabinetry.

Even More Feature Walls

Feature walls were pretty big in 2018, but now people are going even further with feature walls on multiple sides of their kitchens. Backsplashes that take up the entire wall are also going to be bigger in 2019.  

Hidden Hood Vents or No Hood At All

In pursuit of a cleaner looking kitchen, the hood appliance has been hidden away or altogether replaced with alternatives like downdraft ventilation. This also creates more space and gives your kitchen a more open look and feel.

These tables are characterized by a factory-like aesthetic. Metal and wood are incorporated to give it that industrial feel. Industrial design can seem cold by nature but, with the right design and decor, it can integrate into a homey setting easily.

Home Decor to Modernize Your Home’s Style

Home Decor to Modernize Your Home’s Style

Living in an older home does not mean you have to live with older decor. Updating your home with a modern style does not require a huge investment. Home decor is often about the details. You don’t need a home renovation in order to enjoy a modern decor style. Today, the team at Ellecor Interior Design will offer a few decor updates that can give your home’s style a modern look.

Start With the Lights

One of the most overlooked aspects of home decor is the lighting. The lights you use have a significant impact on the feel of a room’s design. Brighten up your home with table and floor lamps. Metallic lamps with simple geometric designs are an inexpensive investment that can do wonders for your home’s style.

Installing new ceiling fixtures is a bit more intensive, but can have a dramatic impact on a room. For most homeowners, it’s best to avoid digging into your home’s electric wiring on your own. If you are planning on making significant changes to your fixtures, contact a professional interior design team, like Ellecor.

Clean Up Clutter

There are a few schools of thought when it comes to accessorizing your home. Contemporary design leans towards minimalism, but that doesn’t mean simply ditching stuff. Instead, concentrate on rearranging furniture so your rooms feel open. Unburden your bookshelves from unnecessary clutter. Remove excess decorative pillows and blankets.  A few are fine, but piles of pillows and blankets strewn across your sofa can make your living room seem cluttered.

Accentuate Your Decor with Art

Contemporary art is a lovely addition to almost any room. Look for art that complements your furniture. When you place art on your walls, try to hang it about eye level or slightly below. Opt for simple frames in lieu of more traditional ornate frames.

Interior Design Predictions for 2018

Expected Interior Design Trends of 2018

Interior design is an ever-changing industry. Whether it be a groundbreaking innovation or a new twist on a classic idea, each year brings about a new set of trends. At Ellecor Interior Design, we are excited for what the rest of the year has in store. Here are just a few of the design trends you can expect to see in 2018.

Bold Colors

After years of neutral, minimalist color palettes, designers are starting to utilize bright, bold colors. Some of 2018’s most popular colors may include navy blue, shades of green, and deep, rich reds. Interior designers will most likely pair bold colors with neutrals, like white and gray, to create a sense of visual balance. Some designers may keep the walls neutral and utilize bold colors in furniture and accents, while others may pair neutral furniture with painted walls.

Bold colors may become especially popular in the kitchen. For years, kitchen cabinets have stuck to a couple basic color palettes: all-white or natural wood. Now, designers are breaking the mold, painting cabinets bright and unexpected colors.

Floral Prints

As another response to minimalist interior design, bold patterns are making a huge comeback. In particular, floral prints are gaining popularity. These bright, bold graphics add a pop of color to a room and connect the interior space with the natural world. Whether it be on wallpaper, pillows, throws, or murals and artwork, floral is sure to dominate 2018.

Concrete Accents

Though it may surprise some homeowners, concrete is becoming a popular building material for interiors. Sure, it may not be the most obvious choice, but polished concrete makes beautiful floors, countertops, fireplaces, and backsplashes. Neutral, simple, and minimalist, incorporating the use of concrete accents is sure to give your home a modern, luxurious feel. As you browse interior design blogs this year, you are sure to see a lot more concrete.

Mixing Metals and Textures

Interior design’s favorite metal seems to change every year. Polished nickel is all the rage one year and matte black becomes the height of sophistication the next. Homeowners are tired of changing out their metal accent pieces only to see them go out of style. In 2018, designers are choosing to mix and match various metals and textures. A brass lamp here, a nickel door handle there, and a copper sink in the kitchen. Using various metals adds visual interest to your home and creates an eclectic, anything-goes atmosphere.
