2019 Kitchen Trends!
For most people, the kitchen is the heart of the home, it’s often the one room in the house where the entire family gets together. For thousands of years food has always been what brings people together, and having a kitchen which can combine functionality with comfort and design to your kitchen goals, is sure to make your 2019 memorable.
We scoured our resources to find you the top décor and renovation trends of 2019 to help you achieve your kitchen goals with confidence and ease.
Using materials which will create a durable and timeless look can really bring your kitchen into the 21st century. The popularity of quartz finishes has made it a trend that just keeps on giving. Quartz is virtually indestructible – just be sure to avoid excessive heat as hot pots can damage the material easily.
Quartz brings instant elegance to any kitchen, the natural designs in the stone adding a flair of sophistication. The natural color options available will allow you just enough choices to accommodate your décor, brightening up any space while accentuating your more modern kitchen.
The last two and a half decades fell victim to granite’s porous nature and bacteria collecting ways. It just goes to show that not all stones are created equal. Granite continues to dwindle in the ranks as we move closer to our second decade of the 21st century.
White Kitchens Are So Last Century
There’s no denying the timeless appeal of a white kitchen, but it goes without saying that they are much harder to keep looking that way. Devoid of colour, no one needs that much light before they’ve had their first cup of coffee.
Create a Mood
Create a relaxed, more sensual atmosphere in your kitchen with alluring and unexpected colour to create a richer and more nuanced look. Perhaps some dark and dramatic green tinged cabinets with an earthier terracotta. Or maybe even some more vibrant tones to elevate the energy and add a splash of personality.
The slick touch of a matte finish are in full swing in the showrooms for 2019. They’re easier to clean, less likely to show fingerprints, and certain not to go out of style anytime soon thanks to their ultra-futuristic clean appeal.
Bring On the Darkness
We’re not talking about Tim Curry’s iconic red horned beast from the 1985 classic movie Legend. We’re talking about adding an elegant sense of drama, deep browns, forest greens, grounding greys, which are sure to take your dinner parties up a notch. Not to mention, they’re easier to manage when it comes to cleanup.
With a nod to industrial styling everywhere, grid motifs can help to add a flair of texture to your kitchen by creating contrast to break up a dull space.
Spanish and Moroccan Tiles
If you have a flair for the exotic then you’re in luck, intricately patterned Spanish and Moroccan inspired tiles and backsplashes for a much more substantial visual impact can help warm up your kitchen space and bring a hint of the south into your home.
Mix and Match
If being bold and unexpected is your thing, then you’ll love experimenting with dark and light colours for cabinetry and countertops, while adding hints of vibrant colour to your accessories. A perfect marriage of the old and the new. If you’re only looking for a little upgrade, try mixing existing stainless steel finishes with newer matte countertops. Or go rustic with a hint of modern country elegance.
RIP Stainless Steele
Stainless Steele had a great run. Clean, elegant, but ultimately the future isn’t looking so bright. Simple pieces in more neutral tones will definitely help you manage any future remodeling. But don’t be afraid to experiment with colourful patterned elements which make great conversation pieces.
When it comes to home décor, minimalism is super hot right now. If you’re all about modern and contemporary, straight lines and less clutter, minimalism can help bring a calmness to such a high energy space.
Nothing will bring you further into the 21st century than bringing technology into your kitchen. From remote light controls to smart screen display fridges, there are plenty of genius updates to take advantage of for the best in kitchen design ideas.
