5 Kitchen Trends for 2019
Are you looking to renovate your kitchen this year? Giving your kitchen a makeover is a great way to freshen up your home’s aesthetic, but there are so many design options to choose from. It can be challenging to keep up with the current trends, let alone predict the ones that will stick.
If you’re having trouble deciding on a design plan for the heart of your home, we have compiled a list of the latest kitchen trends that will last through the coming years.
You may have heard that the white kitchen trend is dying out — and for now, that appears to be the case. There was a time when the most common trend was adorning your kitchen with white cabinets, but recently people have started experimenting with color.
It’s typical in 2019 to see kitchens with cabinets painted in blues, greens and even reds to make them pop out in the room. While it might seem like colorful cabinets would be too much in a kitchen, this design choice can complement the look of metal appliances with walls that are either dark or light. Kitchen cabinet color trends will likely stick around, even as other trends come and go.
Use of Black
You might think that the use of black in your kitchen would make it too dark, but like anything else, moderation is the key. If it’s used in combination with lighter colors and styles, it can add a fresh and modern look to the room. While many people spice up their kitchen by adding splashes of color to their cabinets, another popular trend involves leaving the cabinets light and buying matte black appliances.
Light shades against black appliances create a contrast that catches the eye and gives the kitchen a sharper, more contemporary look. This kitchen trend has been growing for several years and we believe it still has a long life ahead of it. A survey reported early in 2019 even indicated that one in 10 kitchens now have black appliances.
Kitchens with wood cabinets or other elements of the wood theme have grown in popularity, so you might have seen them before online or in other people’s homes. There’s something about the presence of wood cabinets, wood countertops and wood floors that makes people feel comfortable and welcome.
Wood style cabinets with a smooth finish can add a cozy yet natural feel to your home that’s difficult to replicate with other materials. If you’re thinking about giving the wood aesthetic a go, there are multiple types of solid wood you can try out, like oak and hickory. However, solid wood usually shines beautifully after it’s been sanded and finished, no matter what kind you choose.
Who says your kitchen can only be one, or even two colors? Experimenting with color is one of 2019’s biggest kitchen trends, and it doesn’t have to be over the top. It could be something as simple as incorporating the matte black trend with your oven and refrigerator and then using soft blues or purples for your upholstery.
If you’re not convinced yet, all it takes is a quick online search to find some amazing ideas for multi-tone kitchens. You could even combine wooden cabinets with granite countertops and colorful upholstery to create a homey but contemporary look. The positive aspect of this kitchen trend is that there are hundreds of color combinations that people can use to keep it alive as other trends rise and fall.
Use of Stone
Stone is one sturdy material that rarely goes out of style. It can be a complementary element if you decide to use kitchen color trends in your design, or you can use it to give your kitchen an atmospheric or rustic theme.
Like wood, stone also offers a natural aesthetic that can please people with a taste for the outdoors or rural living. By itself, it may not look like a modern material, but it captures an attractive balance between modern and naturally sleek appliances and smooth black or grey countertops. It creates a look that can make almost anyone feel at home.
