Getting ready for a kitchen redesign in 2019?
Are you staying on top of the latest kitchen trends?
If you want to make sure that your home has a hip and modern looking kitchen that boasts elegance and style, it may be time for a kitchen renovation.
There are a lot of benefits of a kitchen remodel.
By knowing what’s trendy you’ll be able to get some great ideas and will be able to create a kitchen that will feel comfortable, look beautiful and turn the heads of any guests you invite into your home.
Below we’ll look at the top kitchen design trends you need to know about for 2019.
1. Darker Kitchens
One trend that is sure to affect many homes in 2019 is the adoption of darker, dramatic kitchens.
Dark floors and countertops, as well as black appliances, are growing in popularity and an overall dark look in a kitchen can create a sense of elegance and look stunning.
As opposed to an all-white kitchen, a darker kitchen can help to create a real sense of drama and a moody atmosphere to your home.
Expect to see more of these dark kitchens becoming popular in the coming year. And also expect to see not just light grey cabinets, but more dark grey kitchen cabinets.
Consider opting for a darker kitchen in your own redesign if you want to create a more stylish home for yourself in 2019.
2. Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed wood is another feature that will find a place in the kitchen in the coming months.
There are many ways to use reclaimed wood in the home and using it in the kitchen can help to give your kitchen a true rustic or farmhouse feel.
Interesting light fixtures made from wood or beautiful antique style countertops, for example, can both be great kitchen additions.
Wood features with pesky cypress finishes are becoming especially popular lately.
Try adding some reclaimed wood to your kitchen if you want to establish a country aesthetic in your home that makes you and your family feel nostalgic for simpler times.
3. Make It Matte
Matte finishes are also coming into vogue. They’re ideal for kitchen hardware, cabinets, and furniture.
Items with these finishes don’t only look great but are also highly functional, because matte finishes are very easy to clean and maintain.
While matte is expected to be particularly popular in 2019, matte never truly goes out of fashion.
Kitchen features with matte finishes are sure to be a hit in the coming year but will look just as elegant and attractive in future years as well.
4. Moving Beyond Stainless Steel
In 2019, it’s time to say goodbye to stainless steel.
While steel has often been the go-to choice for faucets, sinks, and all kinds of small accents in the kitchen, these days many homeowners are moving past stainless steel and trying new things instead.
Stainless steel has been overused too much in the past, so it’s time to freshen up your kitchen during your remodel by choosing something else.
Whether you want to go for neutral tones such as black, brass, or copper, or you want to be a bit more adventurous with colorful patterns, 2019 is the time to do it.
5. Accents With Color
Accents that feature plenty of colors are also becoming popular in the kitchen.
No matter how subtle and understated your kitchen is as a whole, chances are that you can add some flourishes of color here and there to make it stand out in a big way.
Colorful backsplashes or vivid countertop appliances can make a big difference in the kitchen.
You may also want to try a few new ideas for your kitchen window curtains as well.
The right colorful touches, whether subtle or a bit more vibrant can make your kitchen truly feel like home. It can add plenty of visual interest and variety.
6. Copper Is In
Another trend that is becoming popular for the home kitchen is the use of copper.
Since stainless steel is on its way out, copper makes for a great alternative.
When it comes to hardware such as sinks and faucets, copper can really suit a bathroom will and give it a type of subtle elegance that breaks free from a typical kitchen look.
Copper pots and pans, backsplashes, or other small pieces are also fair game and each could fit into a classy kitchen design with ease.
If you want to step away from stainless steel during 2019, you may want to try adding a bit more copper into your kitchen design.
7. Interesting Sinks
While installing a copper sink is one way you can make your kitchen stand out, there’s no shortage of unique and counter-intuitive sink choices you can make.
Creative sink designs that are made of all different types of materials are becoming more popular and can make a great choice for creating a killer kitchen that boasts plenty of stylishness.
Additionally, covered sinks are also becoming trendy.
These sinks include a sliding feature that slides over your sink to instantly prevent any ugly unwashed dishes from showing in your kitchen.
8. Butcher Block Countertops
Butcher block countertops are also trending and can make for a great alternative to the typical linoleum that is often used for the counter space in a kitchen.
Adding these countertops into your kitchen during your renovation is a great way to create a more unique look in the kitchen.
Butcher block countertops have a great natural look and are incredibly functional, making them a great addition to any kitchen space and creating a bit of extra warmth.
These wooden countertops are also surprisingly durable and they’ll just need a bit of regular upkeep to keep them in great shape.
You’ll want to give these counters an occasional coating of mineral oil if you want to keep them in great condition over time.
9. Cabinets with Two Tones
Some homeowners and interior designers are opting for an intentionally mismatched look when it comes to some areas of the home.
Having two different tones for your kitchen cabinets can be a great way to make use of this trend to create a unique and stylish look in a kitchen.
Whether you plan on using classic farmhouse kitchen cabinets, or you’re aiming for something a bit more contemporary, using two complementary cabinet tones can be a great idea.
It can help give your kitchen an unbelievably cool and classy look.
10. Open Shelving
Open shelves are also becoming popular in 2019 and using them can be helpful for creating a kitchen that feels more welcoming and spacious.
With open shelving, everything in your kitchen will be easier to find and you’ll get an opportunity to show off all of your favorite dishes, antiques, and kitchen items.
This can serve as a great alternative to typical kitchen storage and cabinets.
While wooden open shelving can be a great fit for a room, you may also want to consider opting for some elegant glass shelves to showcase your favorite dishes and experience the benefits of open shelving in your kitchen.
11. Banquette Seating
One interesting trend that you may want to consider for a kitchen renovation is the use of banquette seating.
Creating a small nook with bench seating can give your home a unique high-end look that is great for having a meal with your family. It may also increase your home value.
Since many families are eating together at the table less frequently than in past years, it is the perfect time to add in a unique dining area with banquette seating.
A dining nook will be more space efficient and can allow you an opportunity to eat with your family without crowding your home with a large table you don’t actually need.
12. Smart Kitchen Features
Smart kitchen features and advanced appliances are becoming popular in 2019 as well.
This futuristic technology can provide a lot of benefits in the kitchen.
While products such as the Amazon Echo have recently become popular for playing music and checking the weather, that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Fridges with smart screen displays, remote control lighting, smart coffee makers, and wifi enabled crock pots are all possible additions to a kitchen that can make your home easier to use.
Once you switch to using some smart appliances, you may wonder how you survived without them for so many years.
