Moving along with our series, we will look at the next three 2019 Home Design Trends on the Rise. In our first post (see here), we saw two of the four trends listed relating to the bathroom. This is a continuing “trend” in this three-part series.

Softer colors in the kitchen, such as the green in this photo have been an often desired option among design trends.

The “Softer” Side of the Kitchen Seeing a Rise in Popularity in 2019 Home Design Trends

The number six entry on the list of 2019 Home Design Trends on the rise is the increase in more soft colors in the kitchen. Whether a soft gray on the cabinets with a soft satin-brass for the fixtures. Or a two-toned lighter blue paired with a similarly light gray, the possibilities seem endless with the one constant, the softness of color.

Houzz editorial staff member, Mitchell Parker echoes that sentiment, explaining in his article on 2019 Home Design Trends. “If there’s one word that describes the palette of many popular kitchens lately,” Parker declares,  “it’s “soft.” 

Our remaining two 2018 Home Design Trends are both features that have found their way into many new bathrooms. First, number five on the list of 2019 Home Design Trends don’t take us “in the tub,” but rather to the area around it.

Tiled bathtub aprons or “tile around the tub” has seen an increase in popularity in the past year.

Tile Around the Tub, an Affordable Way to Add Texture with 2019 Home Design Trends

This trend that is seeing more and more popularity throughout the current year is Tiled Bathtub Aprons. The reasonable pricing is a bonus, making this trend see a fast climb up the list.

Parker will discuss the rise of popularity and this  trend making the “Top 5.”  “Tile is a great, affordable material that adds design points to a bathroom, and ordering a few extra square feet of tile likely won’t sink the budget.” He added, “The amount of tile needed to cover this minimal surface area isn’t much, but the payoff is big.” The Houzz blogger concludes, “That’s why many homeowners and designers are choosing to wrap the tub apron in tile or another material.

Many new home owners in 2019 have sought an extra “place to relax in the bathroom” or additional seating.

An Extra Seat is “Neat” for Extra Relaxation in the Bathroom.

In the article on 2019 Home Design Trends, Parker refers to the recollection of designer Kristine Tyler when discussing the number four trend on the list. The trend is the addition of some type of seating in the bathroom that is not the toilet. 

In referring to Ms. Tyler’s opinion on this upward trend, it is worth noting that she felt strongly enough about the addition of the extra seating that her company has designed one option for extra bathroom seating. This would be a “bench, that runs from an armoire into the shower stall in the bathroom,” as pictured. Adding his own two cents on this inclusion to the 2019 Home Design Trends, Parkers explains the allure of the “extra seat.”

“Whether for brushing teeth, taking off house slippers or just idling away on the internet before work,” he says. “Almost every homeowner could benefit from having a place to relax in the bathroom.”
