Our kitchens are often the heart of the home; a place to cook, eat, socialise or just enjoy a cup of tea at the end of the day. We use our kitchens every day, so it’s natural to want it to be a stylish, practical and welcoming space. New kitchen trends are constantly emerging, and whether you favour a country cottage style or something sleek and minimalist, each new year is bound to bring some fresh ideas to suit your tastes. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the most stylish kitchen trends for 2019, so read on to see how you could transform your kitchen this year.
Industrial finishes and materials such as exposed concrete or brick are gaining popularity for a modern kitchen with a twist, or if you want a more subtle touch try brass accents or stainless steel appliances. Low hanging filament bulbs and brass or copper lighting also adds a nice touch.
This emerging trend replaces traditional cabinets with metal, wood or glass shelves. It’s a stylish way to display any decorative kitchenware or favourite mugs, and helps open up the room and keep things light and airy.
Add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral kitchen with colourful upholstery. This year sees a move away from pure white kitchens, with colour accents coming from stool covers, chairs or bench seating.
Our modern world is increasingly digital, so it’s no surprise that this is driving new kitchen innovations too. When you can order food or a taxi at the touch of a button, why not branch out into a Wifi connected coffee machine that can you pour you a cup before you even get up? Or the new wave of smart fridges, which enable you to make shopping lists, plan schedules, stream music or even control the lighting.
Natural raw materials like stone, slate and wood are being used to great effect, and they can work in both modern and traditional kitchens. Think pared back stone walls, a large rough-edged wooden table or a slate floor instead of the usual tiles.
If you’re after a sleek, modern look, then integrated kitchen appliances are a must. Nowadays, you can get slim cooker hoods that blend in seamlessly with the rest of your kitchen, while still being just as powerful as the more industrial models. You can also use the same cabinet doors throughout to hide washing machines or dishwashers for a stylish, minimalist look.
