2019 Trends!

With 2019 fast approaching - let's talk about what the popular trends for 2019 are looking like!

Color!  While white kitchens are cool, clean and classic, color cabinetry is what's trending in 2019.

Grays, Blues, even Greens are popular but your color choices are endless and can be customized to match your heart's desire.  Be daring and go two-toned, mixing two different colored cabinets for an oh so gorgeous effect.  Even mix a combination of wood and painted cabinets.

Open Shelving.  Looking to break up your kitchen cabinetry?  Add a little....or a lot...of open shelving. Open shelving can take the place of one or more cabinets.  "Floating" shelving is popular and trending.  Floating shelving makes a gorgeous display area for your dishes, glassware, and personal decorating touches.  Made from many different materials including wood, glass, stainless steel, they will beautifully compliment your d├ęcor.

Pendant Lighting.  Pendant lighting will also be trending in 2019.  Gone are the ceiling hugging fixtures of yesteryear, in are spectacular pendant lights! Strategically placed over your kitchen island or throughout your kitchen, pendant lighting adds personality, charm and charisma to your living space along with functionality. Pendant lights come in all shapes, sizes, and styles that can be hung at different lengths to suit your needs.  Hook them up to dimmer switches so lighting can be adjusted to your work area or set a mood.

So let's talk about why Quartz may or may not be right for your kitchen or bathroom remodel.
