Glass and Steel Room Dividers
When used to separate a kitchen and living room, these transparent dividers can keep food smells and noise in the kitchen, while creating the visual effect of a large, open floor plan. If you aren’t sold on an open floor plan, yet want to make your space feel connected, this is the solution.
Bespoke Pantries and Larders
“When redesigning your kitchen, a bespoke larder is still one of the biggest trends this year and next,’ reveals Naked Kitchens. “A must–have in the modern kitchen, with storage at the right temperature and ingredients easily accessible, a well-designed bespoke larder is also a thing of great beauty.”
Islands are handy as prep surfaces and extra seating, but they don’t need to be set in stone. This slim, moveable island offers flexibility when entertaining, and has an airy base perfect for small spaces. Of all the trends this spring, this one seems to be the most practical.
While they may not be popping up in every new home just yet, the trend of smart appliances has become significantly more popular in 2019. And there’s no denying that a smart fridge could actually be pretty useful.
“Many people are beginning to incorporate colored cabinets in kitchens while moving away from all white cabinetry. Making a statement and creating a mood with cabinetry, like using deep or grey-washed blues and greens is in high demand. These are being beautifully paired with fixtures and hardware in brass and other contrasting metals.” – Sara Ianniciello
Quartz Countertops Still on Top
For high-end kitchen countertops, quartz still reigns supreme. The material is extremely hardy, can last virtually forever, is a breeze to maintain and is anti-microbial. Granite, the main competitor in the high-end bracket, requires slightly more maintenance.
