As 2019 arrives, many residents are thinking about new kitchen designs. In Colorado Springs, granite countertops will continue to be a popular choice when redoing a kitchen.
Here are a few of the top kitchen design trends for 2019.
1. Terrazzo Countertops
Terrazzo adds old-school charm to a kitchen, with bits of glass, marble or other materials embedded in countertops or tiles for floors, a backsplash or walls. For centuries, masons have known the value and versatility of terrazzo. Homeowners will love these countertops, which are scratch and stain resistant and do not conduct heat.
2. Dark Colors
For many years, the emphasis in kitchen design was on bright colors. The trend is shifting as dark jewel-toned navy, black, emerald and plum become more popular. That’s an ideal opportunity to contrast with granite counters in Colorado Springs kitchens.
3. Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops in Colorado Springs have been a popular choice that shows no signs of slowing. Quartz countertops offer so many advantages, from easy maintenance to anti-microbial properties. In recent years, manufacturers have expanded the number of colors, patterns, swirls and veining that can mimic other materials. The recent color trends should persist with softer, neutral cream, taupe, grey or white finishes.
4. Multipurpose Islands
Kitchen islands have been a popular choice for decades but were often treated as an afterthought. Not any longer. Kitchen islands are increasingly the focal point and the hub of a bustling kitchen. Islands today make a visual impact with larger sizes designed to carry out multiple uses, from food prep to family dining to homework spots. Thinking about your island as an additional kitchen countertop space opens up many design possibilities.
