Sure, it’s nice to get new appliances and a new kitchen layout, but what we’re really all after is a beautiful new appearance by considering the latest kitchen design trends of 2019 for our most treasured space within our home.
Kitchen Design Trends In 2019
Is re-designing your kitchen on your list for 2019? If so, check out these hot trends hitting the kitchen design world this year, so that you can get cooking with your dream kitchen ideas. Whether you are concerned about the colors to choose, the style of kitchen cabinets, or design elements, like the countertop or backsplash, continue reading this blog post to find out what’s most trending in kitchen design this year.
Dark And Bold Kitchen Colors
Former trends in kitchens have involved infusing most surfaces within the space with white or other light colors to drive home brightness. True, diffusing natural light is a major goal of most kitchen designs. However, current trends have big, bold colors being brought into the kitchen, particularly modern kitchen spaces, covering up the classic bright whites of yesteryear. Splashes of cobalt blue, deep red, and forest green are being brought into kitchen design via accent walls, design elements, kitchen cabinetry, tiles, and more.
Classic White Kitchen Cabinets
Is white totally out for kitchens? Not necessarily. White may still play a role in high-end kitchens in 2019, not only in kitchen cabinetry, but also on selected walls, depending on the kitchen space. Splashes of color are finding their way to walls via colored wall, base or tall cabinets, and onto countertop surfaces by way of plates and other design elements like vases and flowers. So white may still stick around for high-end kitchens (it’s a classic, after all), but as a complement to the big bolds that are being brought in by way of paint and design.
Trends In Kitchen Countertops
Sticking with the dark and bold kitchen design trend above, dark coloring is finding its way to countertops as well. In fact, darker than dark: black! Black granite and quartz are becoming a very popular choice for kitchen countertops. Granite and quartz are both natural materials that offer a wide range of advantages, including durability and ease of upkeep. They have both long been a favorite for kitchens, but the ubiquity of black is hotter than hot this year. Dark colors like black, dark browns and dark grays on countertops work to complement nearly any color scheme, from stark whites to bits of big bold color as this year’s designs are trending.
Why hide away all that beautiful stemware and all of those beautiful vibrant Fiestaware plates? Current design trends in 2019 have homeowners putting their best and brightest shelving on display, infusing their kitchen space with their belongings as decorations. To make this trend possible, open air shelving is hitting walls in traditional, transitional and modern Italian kitchens everywhere. Shelves installed where closed kitchen cabinets would typically be found, open up a wide world of possibility when it comes to displaying your beautiful gadgets in your kitchen.
