4 Ways To Spice Up Your Kitchen Design

Posted on the 2019-05-06 by Karndean Designflooring

Hello Spring!

It’s time to welcome back beautiful sunlight, budding flowers and warmer weather! With all the charm that comes at this time of year, it also means spring renovations are afoot. If you’re looking to get your kitchen in tip-top shape this spring, we are here to help you get ahead of the curve. We have compiled a list of popular kitchen trends that you’ll be seeing a lot of in 2019.

Say Goodbye to White Cabinets

Homeowners are shifting from their love for white cabinetry and are going bold with a pop of colour in their kitchens. We love this idea as adding colour in your space adds a personal touch, and can make a room feel more inviting. Going with moody shades of navy blues, and dark greens emits a feel of elegance and luxury. Looking for more adventure? Try the two-tone cabinet look, paint your upper cabinets a soft shade of grey like Stormy Monday by Benjamin Moore and your lowers a darker grey like Gotham. By choosing a lighter colour on top your guest’s eyes will naturally be draw upwards when they enter into your kitchen!

Open Shelving is a Collectors Dream

This trend brings you in a new direction, say goodbye to cabinets entirely and switch to open shelving. Incorporating open shelves into your kitchen lets you show off some of your beautiful kitchenware and additional decorative pieces for your guests to peek at! Plus, the added bonus of being able to see where everything is!

Now that your shelves are open this gives you more flexibility with designing the wall behind. You can paint the entire wall, even add some wallpaper to showcase your personal style, or go for simplicity by leaving the exposed brick visible.


Go Organic With Leather Drawer Pulls

Opting for a more organic feel? Using leather drawer pulls is an exceedingly popular trend this year, and can be a quick and painless upgrade in your kitchen. Instead of installing traditional chrome handles, using leather drawer pulls is a great way to add a natural element into your home.

Sit Back and Relax With Banquette Seating

Are you a chair or booth person when dining out? If you tend to ask for a booth then this 2019 trend is perfect for you! Banquette seating is the inclusion of built-in benches as a seating option, freeing up space elsewhere in the room while creating an additional seating area. Incorporate more family time into your 2019 routine with the comfort and convenience of banquette seating, allowing for extra family members around the table without being squished into a tight space. Design tip: when installing a banquette bench, include additional storage underneath to fully utilize the space!
