A kitchen renovation is exciting.
It can also be overwhelming and a bit stressful.
What style trends should I follow? What’s MY style?
You can start by asking yourself a few important questions:
- What’s missing from your present kitchen design?
- What would you like to get rid of?
- What’s the goal for your new kitchen?
To get your creative wheels spinning, let’s take a look at some of the biggest kitchen-remodeling trends for 2019.
1. Quartz countertops
While it’s not a new trend, shiny, nearly-indestructible quartz countertops have staying power.
The look is timeless and quartz remains one of the most-requested countertop materials, with granite being on its way out.
One word of caution – quartz can be damaged by hot pots. Use caution when you’re using heat.
2. Moody tones
Bright white kitchens are no longer where it’s at.
Instead, consider dark and dramatic greens or even a more vibrant color for your space.
It’s all about how the colors make you feel and warm tones can put off a soft, comforting vibe.
3. Moroccan and Spanish tiles
See ya, subway tile.
Make room for a bold visual impact.
The intricate designs and bright colors of Moroccan- and Spanish-inspired tile and backsplashes will give your kitchen a unique look that is anything but common.
4. Undercounter appliances
The trend for the new year is to put appliances under the counters so the upper cabinetry is free for other storage.
This even includes big appliances like refrigerators and microwaves.
No, we haven’t switched to talking about your sidewalks.
Concrete is coming into the kitchen in a big way.
Not only are concrete countertops, backsplashes, and flooring modern, they’re also cost-effective AND add a hint of an industrial feel.
6. Taller refrigerators
There are some major advantages to these column refrigerators.
They take up less space, which is a great perk for a small kitchen and they add a level of visual impact that you won’t get from any other type of appliance.
Terrazzo is a composite material that contains marble, glass, granite, and other suitable materials.
It may seem like a brand new option, but it was actually first popular in the 50s and 60s and again in the 80s.
It can be used for floors, countertops, and even walls.
8. Unique sinks
It looks like the farmhouse-sink trend will be fading away and will be replaced by more statement-driven options.
Think intricate designs, unique shapes, and ornate fixtures.
9. Complementary tones
Make your kitchen cabinets and walls pop by painting them two different-but-coordinating tones.
It’ll give your new kitchen a fresh, modern look.
