Kitchen Design Ideas to Consider in 2019

13 December 2018

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to redo your kitchen? If you’ve been putting it off for years and years, 2019 might be the year for you. With interesting trends and bold new design styles, you can create a kitchen unlike any other. Set yourself up for success this year, so you can finally tick off a resolution. Make a plan, then find the right tradies. A cabinet maker is a great addition to any kitchen reno team. A designer and builder can help you with the details, but a cabinet maker will make it happen. Once you have the team in place, work together to ultimate kitchen for your Perth home.

All About Storage

Open shelving is out. While the look is nice, the practicality is just not there. Functional kitchens are in. Think concealed butler pantries, island shelving, and pull-out drawer inserts. Perth custom cabinet makers can work with you to maximise every single space in your room. Forget blindly reaching into those endless corner cabinets or hazardous junk drawer. Create organised cabinets that fit your lifestyle and work within your budget. Cabinet makers can create flat pack kitchens for those who want to save or build entirely custom and unique products.

Stack your overhead cabinets to the ceiling, use shallow cabinets for spices, add a specified bin drawer. There are many innovative ways to push your kitchen’s storage capabilities to the limits.

Simplicity Rules The Day

The 2000’s felt like a study in opulence and embellishments. Dark woods, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, pendant lights everywhere. It was a rough time for kitchens. In typical trend fashion, the pendulum has swung the other way and minimalism is cool again. Sleek cabinets with no handles and integrated appliances. Ask your kitchen cabinet maker about these trends to see how they can accommodate. Mosaic tiles once dominated splashbacks everywhere, but 2019 is the time to play with different materials from brick to glass and wood. A clean, simple look is key.

The Shadow Approaches

All-white kitchens seemed to dominate every style blog, Pinterest board, and magazine for a while there. In 2019, the sun is setting on this trend with its subway tiles and farmhouse sinks. Come to the dark side! Don’t fear darker tones for cabinets, benchtops, or paint. There are even trends toward black appliances. Matte black hardware has been gaining traction as well. The drama of dark colours is perfect for kitchens, and you can also add pops of timber or metal for beautiful contrast. With eKitchens online ordering tools, you can choose from a range of muted and shadowy colours.
