Goodbye 2018, and hello 2019. The advent of a new year usually brings with it new things for most people or the incentive to buy them.

While some are resolving to get flat tummies this year, you can resolve to have flat (flush) vertical surfaces in your kitchen. To achieve this look, appliances like fridges, cookers and microwave ovens should not have door handles. With just a light tap on a hidden sensor, a knock on a door, or some other type of technological innovation you can get your appliances to open.

Switches and buttons are also fast becoming a thing of the past. No longer will you see them on appliances like coffee machines, dishwashers, wine storage units and the like. Your microwave does not need to continue sitting on a kitchen counter like an artifact on display when it is not in use. You can hide it, along with other kitchen appliances, in an appliance garage. This gives your kitchen a cleaner, neater look and allows you to have more counter space.

Stainless steel is so last year (or decade). If you still have a stainless steel refrigerator and your home aesthetic theme is not ‘vintage’, you might want to replace that with glass. Apart from being more modern, glass is more durable and can look new for a long time if properly cleaned and maintained. Plus, you get to see what is in your fridge before you open it. This is a great way to save energy.

If you want to get yours as soon as possible and are currently not able to purchase one, there are various buying options you could explore. For instance, you could rent your desired refrigerator for a specified duration. This way, you get to try it out before you make a decision to buy. If you do not like it or if you only need it for a short period, you can just return it. Get enough information about home appliances on rent before you take that step.

First it was the flatter your screen, the trendier it is. Now it is size that matters. People are going for super big, 4K resolution, HDR, voice-controlled, OLED and QLED television sets. To make room for these TVs in both in your living room and in your bank account, you would need INR 250,000 – 500,000.

Furniture

Furniture can either make or break a space. One thing that will be really happening with furniture in 2019 will be multi-functionalism. Multifunctional furniture are pieces that perform more than one function in a space. For example, a painting that doubles as a chair. You can get furniture on rent as you decide on what will best suit your space and taste.

Happy new and trendy home. Enjoy it and have plenty of family and friends over for a visit.
