Top Kitchen Trends for 2019

The kitchen has always been the heart of the home and that is as true today as it ever was. We use this space to gather, entertain, and relax. We’ve included some observations from our designers and friends about what’s new, what’s on trend, and what’s worth considering in 2019.

  1. More Glass

    Whether it’s through large windows or glass cabinets, we’re seeing more natural light being incorporated into kitchen designs… and we love it! There’s nothing that will bring as much life to your kitchen as light.

  2. Smart Kitchens

    There’s no hiding the fact that tech use is on the rise… or is there? Lots of homeowners are including hidden docking stations for charging their devices, using smart appliances and lighting solutions, and of course leaving space for Alexa & Google Home.

  3. Base Drawers

    The days of kneeling and digging are over. Instead of classic doors on base cabinets, many homeowners are opting for drawers and the options here are endless.

  4. Bolder Choices

    Overall, we see more homeowners making bolder choices when it comes to their cabinetry. This could be due to the wealth of information and inspiration available online.

    Carefree Kitchens & Lighting also has virtual reality technology! While floorplans, layouts and perspective renders can give a good idea about how the final space will look, putting on a virtual reality headset and ‘looking around’ the room means you no longer have to imagine how the space will feel. You can explore and experience the space at life size. How’s that for inspiration?
