This year has really been flying. We are already half way through March and April is coming up fast. With the building season last year, we are hoping for another building boom this year. There are many homeowners purchasing new homes and even some trying to decide on whether they should move or renovate their home. Your family may be growing and you need more space to eat, or more space in the kitchen for all the food you cook. That bathroom may be as old as the home and ready for an update. New shower, toilet, and vanity to go along with some heated floors for those cold mornings. Maybe you have a garage that just doesn’t have enough room for your car/cars and storage. We want to help you reach the end of the rainbow(finished project) and find that pot of gold(make your vision a reality).

The Year’s Top 6 Kitchen Design Trends Will Make your Mouth
For years, our kitchens have been dominated by bland, white-on-white palettes, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. “Neutral” has been the reigning buzzword.
But are you growing weary of playing it safe? Eager to put your decor in the blender and mix it up? Luckily, 2019 is delivering for change agents. This year, we’re tossing neutral design schemes out the window and embracing our collective desire to make a statement.
Yes, the kitchen mood for this year is moody.
We’ve identified the leading kitchen design trends-all you need to do is let them marinate. Think bold colors, bigger backsplashes, and new looks for a space that’s always on display.
Here’s a look at what to expect this year in kitchen design.
In particular, expect to see darker saturated hues, such as blues and greens, trending in kitchens this year, says Annabel Joy, interior designer and founder of Trim Design Co. in Boston.
“We think Rosemary green will be the MVP of 2019,” she says. “It’s the perfect marriage of muted sage with deep forest, and it looks great with the current matte-black hardware trend as well as with perma-popular brass.”
“You can expect to see the farmhouse aesthetic become a bit more refined and transitional with a heavier lean toward bolder, elegant kitchen designs,” she says.
“Think of it like this: Farmhouse went to rehab and took a nice, long nap,” adds Justin Riordan, founder of Portland, OR-based Spade and Archer Design Agency. “There’s nothing shabby or rustic about it. It’s a refined, more masculine version of farmhouse.”
Think: gold hardware, elegant light fixtures, and use of colors instead of an all-white design.
And because of those people, open shelving will continue to have a foothold in our kitchens in 2019; but this year, we’e taking things a step further. It’s not just cookware and Smeg appliances we’re showing off on our floating shelves.
“People like to express their individuality and curate their collections in their upper cabinets and shelving,” Touzet says. “They don’t want cookie cutter, and the open shelving blurs the line between kitchen and living space. We have clients that showcase collections or display books or art in their kitchens.”
In its place, we’re seeing bigger, bolder patterns that sometimes remove the need for backsplash entirely.
“More and more walls are being completely covered with either tile, or a solid surface like quartz from the floor to the ceiling-and we love it,” Riordan says. “We could not be happier with the clean, finished look.”
“We’re seeing cookware shy away from chemical-laden Teflon and nonstick, and heading directly for traditional, good, old-fashioned cast iron,” Rioirdan says. “It takes some getting used to, as the pans are never washed with soap, but man oh man there are some beautiful American-made, cast iron cookware out there.”
Hang these prominently in your kitchen to make a statement about the culinary expert you are.
“Sustainable materials like cork are being used in unexpected ways like flooring and even backsplash,” says Trim Design’s Joy.
If you love the environment but are nervous about making such a big change, start small: Add recycling stations to your kitchen, or swap out your window dressings and chair cushions for natural fabrics.
