A home is often the most important place in a person’s life, so it makes sense to make it a place where you can relax and unwind, and enjoy time with family. However, older homes might need some updating, or you might have some ideas for your dream home that you want to add. This is where remodeling can really make a difference in how you use the space. If you want are looking to make some changes to your home, this guide shows you some hot remodel trends in 2019.
- Color Tones – While monochrome colors may have been a recent trend, there is a shift happening towards warmer color tones. Think earthy yellows, warm whites, and accent walls in burnt orange or terracotta.
The trend for bright, fun colors doesn’t end there. Go for bright kitchen cupboards and counters, and bold tiling for both kitchens and bathrooms.
- Indoor and Outdoor – Another hot style for 2019 and beyond is the fusion of indoor and outdoor. Eating al fresco in the home, summer barbeques and socializing with friends just went to a new level, and now there is no limit to the dishes you can cook thanks to the demand for outdoor kitchens.
L-shaped outdoor kitchens bring just the right amount of cooking area and counter space, allowing the cook to get on with creating sumptuous meals while being able to talk with guests.
Letting more natural light come through to the interior always makes a dark space feel nicer to be in. Consider adding skylights, or sun tunnels to help brighten up a dark corridor that lacks windows. You can also increase the amount of light by taking out brickwork and replacing with panels of glass. You would need to consult a specialist to do this, to make sure the correct lintels are in place to support the roof.
- Flooring – for kitchen and living areas, wooden flooring has always been a top material to use. However, there was a shift in 2019 from darker wood colors to lighter, helping to create brightness and warmth within the home.
- Kitchens – while countertops made from granite and marble are popular, there is an increased demand for counters made from polished concrete, as well as recycled glass. Concrete is a versatile material that can be shaped and colored, and polished, so it shines, making it ideal for kitchens.
Large farmhouse sinks will never be out of style and are a trend that is set to continue this year. The classic look, with plenty of space to wash fruits and vegetables, as well as pots and pans, are just some of the reasons why this style of sink offers great looks and practicality.
Another on-trend look for 2019 is to have pendant lighting over your table or kitchen island. There are many styles to choose from, or you could even make your own if you have creative skills so that you can create a unique look to your kitchen.
