Stainless steel is out – colour is in
Let’s kick things off with one of the lesser known trends. Are you thinking about new appliances in stainless? Well, keep thinking for a bit, then stop thinking about it altogether. Stainless steel is not dead yet, but there’s definitely a move towards appliances with other metals or colours. Sure, you can still purchase it (and probably at a great price) but you’ll be dating your house all the way back to 2009. These days it’s all about high style, in vibrant hues and everything fancy. This type of finish kicks your kitchen up multiple notches!
Embrace Hygge. Say what?!
A quiet trend that has quickly been gaining speed is, in fact, a classic: Less is More. Embrace “hygge” and nix those upper cabinets. Hygge, pronounced “hoo-guh”, is a Danish concept that cannot be translated into one single English word. The gist is that hygge encompasses a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. As the minimalist movement grows, we are seeing more and more people wanting their spaces to appear as clean as possible. The best way to achieve this is to eliminate those cabinets. Don’t panic, there are still plenty of storage options when living sans-cabinets, and if you are in the middle of remodeling your home, you could replace those cabinets by adding a true butler’s pantry.
Now, onto the wet stuff
Bathroom design experts have been asked what we should expect for the 2019 bathroom trends, and the results are in. Shower doors and enclosures are starting to be a blip on the radar.

It is safe to say that the number one trend right now is colour. All in all this year is shaping up to be a great one. Please be sure to let your friends know they should consult this post as a new year resolution.
