In 2014, Nitti Development and JMB architects set out to build a first-of-its-kind new construction community in Elmhurst, Illinois. With a limited time to complete the project, efficiency on the job site would play a more important role than ever in the company's ability to create beautiful, customized homes.
Every homeowner has their own taste, but knowing which kitchen trends of 2019 are developing and which are going out of style can help prepare you for design questions and product demand. Here are three of the fastest-growing trends we think you should know about and how you can incorporate them.
1. Gold and Copper Accents
Keep homeowners ahead of coming trends by skipping stainless steel and embracing gold and copper. These beautiful finishes add contrast that give any home a vintage, upper-class ambiance. Designers everywhere are using these materials as room-defining accent pieces in sinks, hardware or oven hoods. Coordinate the look with antique brass or oil-rubbed bronze hardware options available on Pella® windows and doors.
2. Black Features and Moody Tones
The days of white-flooded kitchens and stainless steel appliances will soon be a thing of the past as homeowners move toward darker, more dramatic styles. Matte finishes on appliances or cabinetry accentuate any home’s elegance while highlighting its most defining features, such as a copper hood or wood-paneled cabinets. An easy way to achieve this look is with window and door frames with a black stain interior finish, simple grille patterns and exclusive black hardware options designed by Pella.
3. Industrial Look
Less is more as trendsetters move away from clunky molding and heavy finishes, opting instead for modern simplicity. Clean, symmetrical lines, natural stains and simplistic grille profiles set the tone for an industrial look that continues to grow in popularity. For your next project, think open and airy with bright colors balanced by dark tones. Windows and doors in our Architect Series® contemporary line will help you create this up-to-date look.
