2019 Kitchen Trends

beautiful dream kitchens


Today’s kitchen trends have everyone talking. Have you ever heard the phrase, “kitchens are the heart of the home”? The kitchen is where family, friends, and guests come together to create lasting memories. The kitchen is the place where we replenish and refuel, stopping in for a cold and refreshing glass of water or a warm and comforting meal. The kitchen design outlook has evolved from recent years in notable ways. When thinking about kitchen décor, we now think about; laminate floors (from hardwood floor to stone and more), hard counter tops such as marble, granite corian and even concrete, and not to mention stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Are you looking to remodel your kitchen? Well you’ve come to the right place! If you would like to redesign your kitchen you should first consult with a kitchen re-modeler for advice. A kitchen re-modeler can help you design the kitchen of your dreams, with as many or as few gadgets as you want. Below are a few kitchen trends you should consider.

1. Kitchen Cabinets

The all-white kitchen look is quickly fading away. Taking center stage this year is our neutral colors; very light and soft grays, semi-opaque cream finished on wood, and light khaki tones. Grays and warm grays from medium to dark shades are starting to be seen in fashionable kitchens now more than ever before. Grays mixed in with a soft white or the classic black and white.

Gold finishes on cabinet doors is something new to look forward to this year. Black is being used either on all cabinets or as an accent. The use of contrast is used as a design and style element in light and dark tones, or a mix of cool and warm tones. Contrasting interior and exterior cabinet finish are adding more of a stylish touch. A range of soft medium blues, bold blues and khakis are the go to for your painted cabinet colors this year. Multi-colored finishes on cabinetry are being used as frames surrounding cabinet doors and drawers or a mix of wood finishes on white oak. Not to mention matte finishes are ruling this year!

2. Kitchen Design Styles

Due to the prevalence of warm and cool grays, matte finishes, quiet counter top colors, built in appliances, grid motifs and black elements, kitchen trends are becoming a more masculine style. This year’s design elements are both strong and simple. The industrial style has been toned down to a much less trendy/identifiable look featuring accents rather than full-on industrial themes. The industrial style’s main feature is concrete effect finishes such as concrete-sprayed doors.

The modern farmhouse style is another super fresh look for your kitchen. Due to its open shelving in contrasting colors, lighter finishes in oak cabinetry or painted cabinetry in soft whites, reclaimed-like wood elements with clean lines. The less the better!

3. Counter tops and More

Marble and wood counter tops are in but it looks like quartz is taking the lead for biggest counter top trend of 2018. Quartz counter tops are man-made from ground-up quartz, resin and pigments. Often glass, stones, or metal can be added to the mix, to create variations in the appearance. Quartz counters are scratch and stain-resistant.

Gold and warm toned finishes on faucets, cabinet doors and other design elements, are not going away anytime soon. They give a pop to the moody grays and provide a strong visual accent in the kitchen. Gold accents on covers of burners on gas cook tops are still going strong along with mixed metal finishes.

4. Integrated and Stainless Steel Sinks

Stainless steel sinks are the focus of kitchens these days and the bigger the better. You can also incorporate polished chrome or nickel into hardware, faucets, shelf brackets, and more for an upscale accent that endures. You can create striking focal points with brass doors, door handles, ovens and sinks. Integrated sinks are becoming more and more popular, because they create a seamless look in your kitchen.

5. Kitchen Floors

On the floor front, herringbone is a continuing trend because it adds an instant air of European refinement and history. Hardwood floors have kept kitchens warm and cozy for years. The material adapts to any style and flawlessly unites rooms.

6. Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances will give your kitchen a professional and commercial look, with an enduring neutral color that can be easily integrated into any kitchen style.

7. Kitchen Islands

Kitchen Islands continue to dominate with many larger kitchens now opting for two islands. Most kitchen islands will have bar seating or banqueting seating attached to the island. Kitchen islands make it easier for food preparation and can also be used as a storage area, as well as a place for dining.

8. Smart Kitchen

With the advancement of technology, smart appliances are now developing at a rapid pace. Today’s kitchen necessities now include a boiling water tap, WiFi ready appliances allowing us to control kitchen from afar and steam ovens and vacuum drawers which make cooking quicker and easier. You can now control music and lighting straight from your Smartphone or iPod.
