Home renovations can be tricky, especially when it comes to styles and trends. By focusing on what is in style you can help get the most out of your renovation and really wow your guests.
When it comes to home renovation, we always want to make sure that we’re looking ahead with designs. If we remodel our homes following dated trends, then not only is there value lost in the renovation, but it will have to be re-renovated in the not-so distant future again. By following up and coming trends, we can make sure that our home renos are in style and will stay design relevant for longer.
Of course, you’ll want to make sure that the design trend you’re choosing is something that you like, and not just what’s trendy and new. You have to find balance of what you like, and what others will like to make sure that you’re happy with your home remodeling and that it adds value to your property.
With all that said, here are some of our thoughts on a few interior design trends for 2019:
Cabinetry in 2019 will be using more innovative storage solutions. Often, people will make the mistake of penny pinching with cabinet solutions. This leads to wasted space, and less storage. By using innovative storage solutions, you can optimize the storage space, which will allow for less clutter. By using pullout pantries and engineered cabinets you’ll find more space to keep all of your kitchen essentials, without needing to add in more cabinets.
Flooring is one of the fastest evolving in regard to style changes and trends. Old century homes were built with beautiful hard wood floors, which were then often covered up by carpets. Over the past few years we’ve moved back to hardwood floors, which has now shifted to engineered hardwood. One flooring trend that seems to never go out of style is reclaimed hardwood. It is more pricey, but the wow factor that it incurs is worth every penny.
Your kitchen counter top can make or break a kitchen renovation. You can have trendy backsplash and beautiful cabinets, but if your counter top doesn’t pop, your kitchen style will fall flat. In 2019 we’ll see a lot more counter tops with character. Granite is on its way out, and we’re going to see a lot more Quartz counter tops with different colours and styles.
Window coverings and drapes are often an afterthought and aren’t given the attention they deserve. If you’ve ever looked at a room and thought, “It’s missing something.”, maybe it was missing stylish drapes. By using drapes and window coverings that accent the room correctly, you can bolster the feng shui and completely tie the room together. In 2019, look for more vibrantly coloured window coverings that highlight the room and lift the atmosphere.
