2019 Hottest Kitchen Trends
Modern and minimal: an all-white kitchen trend has been going strong for the past decade. However, designers are starting to gear towards color. Specifically, colors that pop, two-tone, or contrast colors. If you have a white or gray kitchen, you can still add a pop of color with fixtures, accents or even painting an accent wall. A fun backsplash can add drama or pizzazz to any kitchen. 2019 kitchen color trends: natural colors, navy, copper orange, brown, gray, and black.
Welcome to the dark side: when looking at finishes, hardware and appliances – enter matte black. Complemented with a glossed countertop or glazed backsplash, the matt finish adds a contemporary twist.
Show a little drama: asymmetrical kitchen lighting has started gaining popularity. Designers are creating drama by redirecting the eye with an asymmetrical pendant, or to create a mini vignette, or highlight a favorite area or object in the kitchen.
Smart kitchen ideas: as technological advances continue to enhance our lives, they have also entered our homes, our kitchens, from touch controls, remote light controls, smart cooking features to screen-display appliances, there are plenty of ways to make your kitchen “smarter.”
