With a new year comes new home trends. The kitchen and bathroom are the two most popular homes for remodeling, therefore extra attention is given to trends for these spaces. House Beautiful spoke with top designers to get a sneak peak of what trends they predict will dominate 2019 in these spaces.
Here are what the magazine identified as the top kitchen trends to keep an eye on for next year:
Incorporate Stone According to Los Angeles-based interior designer Natalie Meyers, "people are falling in love with abstract canvasses painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continue the stone material to water edges and tall backsplashes."
Mix in Beadboard Accents Considering adding beadboard accents on drawer fronts, hood vent surrounds, or island fronts. They are an "eye-catching way to add subtle texture to a kitchen," Meyers said.
Matte Black Everything "Matte black fixtrues and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional Shaker style kitchens."
Here are a few of the trends identified for the bathroom by House Beautiful:
Vanities in Front of Windows "I'm seeing more vanities in front of windows. When there is a beautiful view, it's great to stand by the sink and look out. I've suspended mirrors from the ceiling or used a mirror on the end wall of the sink. Another plus is that the lighting is great," says interior designer Moises Esquenazi.
Open-Concept Designs "It's all about the open concept, with the exception of where you handle your private business. The use of steel or privacy glass as a barrier is important, but ultimately, showering and getting ready in open air is awesome," interior designer Becky Shea says.
Statement Walls in Poweder Rooms "Powder rooms have always been a place to add high drama to a small space, but now oversized floral wall prints and pattern-on-pattern are feeling very of-the-moment, particularly in bold, bright colors," says interior designer Carolyn Pressly.
