Kitchen Decor Jan 17,2019

The kitchen is the hub of any home. It’s where families and friends gather to cook and share meals together. It is a very high-traffic space and it generally influences the design of the rest of the house, especially if the home has an open plan layout. Whatever colours and materials are used in the kitchen normally set the tone for other areas that are adjacent to it, for example the dining and living areas. So it’s not just your wardrobe undergoing changes this New Year, say hello to new kitchen trends of 2019.

1. Kitchen Backsplashes to add colour to your kitchen

According to the home design pros on Houzzthis, kitchen backsplashes will make an even bigger statement in 2019, as designers are extending the tile all the way up to the ceiling. Rather than a pop of tile above the counter, stylish kitchen are featuring an entire wall of tile. This look adds texture and visual interest to any kitchen

2. Art Deco for that touch of glamour

Mid-century Modern has been the go-to design style of the past for a good while now, and many trend forecasters are eager to identify the next big thing. Some feel strongly that it's going to be all about Art Deco in 2019.

If you want to be a head of the curve, start bringing in glamorous items like the pendant lights, vases and other water vessels and bar stools that lend to Art Deco style.

3. Colours of the year

All the experts agree on this one: Dark colours are making a big comeback in 2019. "Clients are starting to lean away from the trending gray of the past years and into the navy palette, especially paired with gold hardware and fixtures," explains Layne Brookshire, a Design Panel expert and founder of Ms. Placed Professional Organizing in Austin. In addition to navy, black and forest green will also be trendy kitchen paint colours in 2019, the design experts at Houzz report.

4. Good-vibes tribal prints

Geometric prints are almost always in style, but every decade or so their culturally inspired counterparts step into the limelight. This is their time and tribal prints will be big this year. They are a wonderful way to bring unique style and contrast to your kitchen space.

One can easily embrace this trend by adding a couple of napkins, placemats, rugs, drapes, upholstery, where ever the fabric might aptly reside in your kitchen.

5. High on functionality

More and more homeowners are looking for innovative storage solutions for their kitchens. They want to declutter their countertops and increase space utilization and functionality, which is where cabinets and drawers come into play. 


Here are the 2019 kitchen trends in terms of cabinetry: 

  • Wide & deep drawers
  • Rustic woods (walnut, oak, cherry, ash, elm) 
  • Laminates
  • Pull-outs
  • Roll out trays 
“Many [homeowners] are beginning to incorporate coloured cabinets in kitchens while moving away from all white cabinetry,” explains Ianniciello of Whitehall Interiors, a luxury interior design firm in Manhattan that specializes in custom furnishings.

6. Porcelain Faux Stone and Large-format Tile

Faux stone is back, according to Adam Meshberg of the Brooklyn-based architecture and interior design firm Meshberg Group. “Faux stone and large-format tile will soon replace natural materials like concrete or Italian white marble,” he says. Beyond just tile, porcelain is also set to be a major contender for countertops in 2019. Meshberg explains. Low-maintenance and lovely to look at?  Why not?

7. Minimalistic and private

Turn your kitchen into an oasis of calm by channelling the minimalist trend. Use simple, discrete finishes with an injection of colour blocking and solid surfaces to create a refreshing room. As space becomes a premium, this trend provides an aura of peace and privacy within your kitchen.

A condensed colour palette of almost neutral tones can be brought to life with a gloss or super matt finish. Echo the natural element of wood and stone through a range of laminates, quartz and solid wood worktops.

8. The Industry Trend

A combination of man-made materials and engineered style, channel the New Industrial kitchen trend to create a modern, urban look. Use a dark colour palette and mix textures with linear lines to enhance a retro influence. Introduce the factory inspired trend into your kitchen using dark and sophisticated colours, creating a strong industrial feel.

8. Go Vogue

Marble, metallic and a gentle colour palette inspire the Vogue kitchen trend, with a focus on creating a luxurious living space. With the addition of jewellery-like elements, sophistication is achieved. Transform your kitchen into a soft and serene place to relax with the use of light colours, pale timbers, luxe materials and warm metallic accents.
