Kitchen Design Trends in 2019

Kitchens are the focal point of any home. From cooking to catching up with family and friends, this room is at the center of attention. If you are interested in adding some pizazz to your current cooking space, here are a few top trends in kitchen design this year. Colors and Finishes Single hues are passé. Design features with bold colors are the most desired in kitchens this year. Designers are mixing and matching different colors all around the kitchen. This vibrant style is not limited to wall paint. From cabinet to island colors, a unique and distinctive look is what you’ll find in modern kitchens throughout 2019. When it comes to kitchen finishes, metallics continue to gain in popularity. Used in everything from lighting to hardware, metallics invite a fresh look. Home owners are no longer limited to the standard metallic hues. Kitchen manufacturers have added a variety of tones to their products, from black gold to polished rose bronze. Cabinets and Sinks Storage space is part of the functionality of any kitchen, but how much is too much? Fewer cabinets are trending in kitchens this year. Cooking spaces without upper cabinets add a modern design element. Minimalist is key. Fewer cabinets, in some kitchens, also make the room feel clear of clutter. Not all trend-setting kitchens this year have sacrificed storage space, though. Floating shelves are another eye-catching alternative. When it comes to details, designers are transforming everything, including the kitchen sink! Kitchen designers are taking options for this long-ignored staple to another level. One color is topping the list for sinks this year: black. Utility is key for any kitchen sink, but adding a bold dark finish elevates any basin.

Islands Sharing or making a meal can start or end at the kitchen island. Home owners have moved kitchen islands from their “nice-to-have” to their “must-have” home features list. When it comes to island design, uniformity is uninviting. Trending this year are large islands with bold colors that contrast the rest of the kitchen.

Lighting A bright, well-lit kitchen is always in style. Trendsetters are using single pendant lights grouped in a dramatic or unexpected way this year. The nontraditional arrangement of pendant lights can make a statement in any kitchen. Size doesn’t matter: Mini pendants showcased at different heights are also making waves in kitchens.

Q: I AM A FIRST TIME HOME BUYER, AND THE HOUSE I INTEND TO PURCHASE IS ABOUT TEN YEARS OLD. DO I NEED A HOME WARRANTY? WHAT KINDS OF THINGS DOES A HOME WARRANTY COVER? A: A home warranty is a smart idea, especially for a home that is ten or more years old, because the older we get the more prone we are to breaking! Even if your inspection came back without any problems, it doesn’t mean something won’t happen during your first year of ownership. Believe me, the last thing you want to do is shell out money for repairs or replace major appliances right after you buy a home. Unfortunately, homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover everything. For example, suppose your refrigerator goes on the fritz when you are away for the weekend and leaks all over the kitchen floor. Insurance might cover the damage to your floor, but it likely won’t cover the costs of repair or a new freezer. A home warranty, on the other hand, will get you that repair or new appliance. A home warranty includes repair or replacements of major appliance, such as a freezer, dishwasher, hot water heater, ovens, etc. Mechanical systems, including heating, plumbing, and your electrical system can be covered with a home warranty; and you can even get your pool or garage door openers covered! Your home warranty ensures that the things that were working the day you purchased your home continue to work for the first year. You should definitely consider a home warranty, even if the seller doesn’t pick up the tab. You will save big on the costs of a repairman (we all know how expensive plumbers are!) and you won’t have to spend $1000s on a new major appliance.

Q:I APPLIED FOR A JOB WITH ONLINE RECENTLY AND THERE WERE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT MY RACE, MY GENDER, AND WHETHER I WAS A VETERAN. I THOUGHT THESE TYPES OF QUESTIONS WERE ILLEGAL. SHOULD I ANSWER THEM? A: Not necessarily. While it is illegal for an employer to publish a job advertisement that shows a preference for or discourages someone from applying based upon the above, it may not be illegal for the employer to ask about race, gender, et cetera during the job application process. An employer may legitimately need information about their employees or applicants race for affirmative action purposes and/or to track applicant flow. One way employers can get this information and prevent discriminatory selection is for employers to use separate forms to keep the information separate from the actual job application, and online applications are a common practice. Whether or not you answer the questions is entirely up to you. The application should not require that you provide the answers and should have a way for you to leave that section blank or incomplete. If you are not confident that the gender/race questions are not separate from the application, then you probably should not answer. Usually an electronic application will ask the gender/race information up front and include a disclaimer for the reason the information has been requested. If that is the case, then you can be certain that the information is being collected for reporting reasons, and the government is using your race and gender information to evaluate equal opportunity and affirmative action compliance. If you have continued questions or concerns, you can check out www.eeoc.gov. The website has a very informative Q&A section. Good luck on the job search! ACADIANA HOMEFINDER
