Tens of thousands of home building professionals from all over the world went to the recent International Builders’ Show in February to see the biggest trends for the housing industry this year. These trends combine classic elegance with modern features to create a look you’d want for your home.
Here are the biggest home trends in the 2019 IBS:
Kitchen counters with integrated cooktops are in this year. Imagine burners and controls built into the countertop itself, and you’ve got yourself a contemporary 20109 kitchen. You should include this in your next kitchen remodeling plans.
Accented with Concrete
This year, concrete won’t be limited to the pavement, the floor and the kitchen counters. Concrete will be used in both hanging and tabletop lighting pieces like pendants and table lamps, providing homes with modern, organic lighting options.
Warm Metals Are Back
This year sees the resurgence of warm metals, such as bronze, brass, copper and gold (including rose gold) in home design. Warm metals are more bold and elegant than just shinya nd fashionable for longer than just a passing fad.
Mixed Finishes Are In
The warm metals above, along with cool metal finishes such as steel and chrome, are going to be mixed with other finishes such as black this year. These mixed finishes are likely to be seen being used in modern and traditional pieces and can be used in your bathroom remodeling plans.
Gone are the days when fireplaces used to protrude into a space. Now, modern fireplaces keep the flames burning inside a glass enclosure using gas.
These modern fireplaces come in various forms: single-sided (like traditional fireplaces), bay (protrudes from the wall so that it can be seen from the front and sides), see-through and pier (can be placed beneath dividers; the fire can be seen from both the front and back).
Color trends change very quickly, but homeowners need not fret what color to choose with a new gadget called the ColorSnap Match device. This little thing, which is smaller than a film canister, helps you identify the best colors that will match the surface you scan using it.
