If you are thinking about updating your kitchen, you’ll want to know what’s currently on trend for kitchens in 2019. Whether it’s a minimal refresh or a full-scale re-fit and renovation that’s on the cards, keeping tabs on what’s hot and what’s not in terms of kitchen design is always useful.

For some homeowners, keeping up with what’s on trend for kitchens is everything. Some people just have to have the latest looks in their home. And, even if you’re not so bothered about current trends, it’s never does any harm to see what ideas there are out there. You never know, you might pick up some great inspiration from something you see.

So, let’s take a look at some of the kitchen design trends that have been proving popular in 2019.

On trend for kitchens: Colour

The classic look for kitchens has always been pure white. There’s just something about the sight of glossy white in a kitchen that makes it a perennial winner and firm design favourite. White provides a clean and fresh feel, always looks modern and contemporary, and helps to create an illusion of space too. It’s no wonder that pure white has remained popular throughout the years.

It’s become almost the default setting for kitchen design, but that could be changing. Adding a splash of colour as a contrast is becoming more popular and on trend for kitchens in 2019.

Whether it’s a contrasting shade on a cabinet door, or a single element of accent colour – such as bright counter stools – pops and splashes of colour to contrast with the classic pure white have become increasingly de rigueur.

You can be as daring or bold as you like, but whatever you choose, contrasts of colour aee definitely in for 2019. Incorporating colour into cabinetry really makes a statement and creates a mood. Deep blues, greens and greys are particularly popular, but you can choose any colour from the rainbow, if you so desire.

On trend for kitchens: clever, concealed storage solutions

Having the optimum amount of storage in a kitchen design is a key consideration. The move this year has been towards concealed and increasingly clever storage solutions. For many homeowners, having enough neat storage space in the kitchen is high on the list of ‘must-haves’. Kitchen designers seem to be getting even more ingenious by the day. What’s more, you’d be amazed at how clever and space-saving some of the latest storage solutions can be.

Latest kitchen trends: Curves are in

Sleek and crisp design lines are always popular in kitchen designs. That will always be, we’re sure. However, in something of a break with tradition, curves are definitely on trend for kitchens in 2019. Curves bring a touch of indulgence to the kitchen. We’re sure that curvy kitchen designs are going to be on trend for a good while yet.

Kitchens keeping a touch of tradition

Many kitchen styles look ultra-modern and futuristic right now. However, the classic traditional look is one that never really goes out of fashion. There are definite nods to the past in some of the looks that are on trend for kitchens in 2019. The likes of natural stone and rattan furniture blend into modern designs. Furthermore, fixtures and lighting that are vintage-inspired are popular too.

Connecting with nature is very much on trend at the moment. Light and airy spaces are in demand and natural wood works superbly when incorporated into kitchen designs. Letting raw materials speak for themselves – from timber to stone – is a real design statement in itself. A back to basics approach is definitely back in vogue when it comes to kitchens.

The best of the rest

Some of the classic looks from yesteryear still remain as popular and as on trend for kitchens in 2019. Shaker kitchens and farmhouse kitchens are still appealing and attractive to many homeowners. In sharp contrast, for a futuristic, almost space-age look, grid-like shelf units and striking geometric patterns make a bold statement and a daring alternative to conventional wall units.
