Kitchens typically command the highest price tag when it comes to room renovations. Projects range from a full gut job to a fresh coat of paint. But when it comes to specific features of a kitchen, five elements top the list of upgrades.
1. Kitchen Counter Top
According to the recent 2019 U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, counter tops are the number one trend in kitchen improvements. And this year, quartz is the most desired material.
When it comes to counter top color, white is the preferred choice among most kitchen renovators.
2. Back Splash
The next top kitchen trend for 2019 is replacing the back splash. Ceramic tile is the most desired choice for providing fresh appeal in the heart of the home.
And the most popular pattern for tile is a staggered horizontal style, like subway tile.
3. Kitchen Sink
Coming in at number three on the list of kitchen trends is the sink. Farmhouse sinks are wildly popular, whether single bowl or double bowl.
A copper sink also makes for a pretty upgrade in the kitchen.
4. Kitchen Faucet
It might come in at number four on Houzz’ list of kitchen trends but for me, the faucet is in the top two of my personal list of improvements for the kitchen.
Go simple or get fancy with an extendable faucet that makes rinsing dishes an easier chore. Since I don’t have a dishwasher, this style of faucet would come in handy.
5. Kitchen Lighting
Lights are relatively easy to replace so it’s no surprise that kitchen lighting makes the list of top five kitchen improvements for 2019.
There are seemingly limitless options for pretty lighting fixtures in the kitchen. You can go farmhouse, traditional, or take a more modern approach with a funky pendant light.
Do you have any kitchen improvements in store for this year? Are any of the on this list of top five kitchen trends? My son hinted at getting me a new faucet for Christmas, so for now I’m on the hunt for a new light to go over the kitchen sink.
