The new year is the perfect time to make changes, especially if you’ve been thinking about updating your kitchen. Before you get started on your remodeling project, it’s a good idea to learn about some of the kitchen design trends that are poised to take over homes across the country in 2019. Choose just a few of these trends, and you’ll be able to create the stylish, trendy kitchen that you deserve.

Everything in Matte Black

Choosing all your appliances in matte black is an increasingly popular kitchen trend that you may want to take advantage of in 2019. In the past, matte-black appliances were routinely used to offset all-white kitchens, but they can now be found in kitchens with all types of color schemes.

Not only do matte-black appliances give your kitchen a bold look, but they can serve as an attractive counterpoint to wood cabinets and flooring. Invest in a few appliances in matte black for 2019, and you’re going to have one of the most attractive kitchens on your block.

Unique Kitchen Sinks

Nothing gets more use in your kitchen than the sink, and if you’re like most homeowners, you want your sink to be both stylish and functional. Instead of choosing the same-old, same-old sink options, you could install a unique kitchen sink that combines form and function.

In the past, kitchen sinks have been fairly basic, but modern sinks now come with interesting designs and features that you’re sure to love. For example, you can now have a sink with advanced features such as integrated pot holders, detachable cutting boards, and much more. When it comes to choosing a unique kitchen sink in 2019,  the only limit is your imagination.

Install Pendant Lighting

The lighting that you choose can make or break the look of your kitchen. Too bright, and the room may feel antiseptic; too dim, and you’ll find yourself struggling to see while you’re preparing and eating meals. Fortunately, you can easily light your kitchen while accentuating its style by installing pendant lighting.

Pendant lighting has been out of vogue for some time, but it’s set to make a big comeback in 2019. Because so few homes currently have hanging kitchen lights, pendant lighting can give your kitchen the unique look that you want. Best of all, there are several different styles of pendant lighting available, meaning you won’t have any trouble finding an option that matches your style preferences.

Floating Shelves for Extra Space

Floating shelves are another hot design trend that you should consider for your kitchen in the new year. Adding open shelving to your kitchen provides several enticing benefits, and may just help to make the kitchen your family’s favorite room.

One obvious benefit of floating shelves is that they can make your kitchen feel more spacious, which is great if you often host friends and family. Open shelving can also make it a lot easier to show off your most attractive kitchenware. For example, if you have a particularly stylish set of dishes, you can put them front and center on your open shelves.

Lastly, floating shelves make it easier to find your go-to kitchen items, such as cups and plates. Instead of searching through a dark cabinet for your favorite coffee mug, you can just grab it off of your floating shelf.

Indoor Herb Garden

Cooking with fresh herbs can be a lot of fun, especially if you love experimenting with new dishes. Instead of making frequent trips to the store for the fresh ingredients you need for your meal, you can add an indoor herb garden to your kitchen.

Fresh eating has become very trendy, and installing an indoor herb garden in your home will make it easy for you to join the trend. If you frequently cook with fresh herbs, an indoor herb garden can be a very practical addition to your kitchen and will also give the room a vibrant look that you’ll love for years to come. Although your garden may take a little time to cultivate, it will be well worth the effort.

Beadboard Designs–15237171

Beadboard is another classic design that is set to make a comeback in 2019. You can use beadboard virtually everywhere in your kitchen, but it will look particularly sharp on your cabinets. The evenly spaced grooves that are the hallmark of beadboard can give your kitchen a charming, rustic look that both you and your guests will love. Also, because beadboard isn’t commonly found in modern kitchens, you’ll be able to give your room an impressive original look.

Wide-Plank Flooring

When you’re redesigning your kitchen, no decision is more important than the flooring you install. Although there are several trendy flooring options you could choose for your kitchen, wide-plank flooring may be your best bet.

Wide-plank flooring is extremely attractive and can give your kitchen the farmhouse look that is so popular these days. Plank flooring is also very durable, provided that you choose the right material. By installing wide-plank flooring in your home, you can give your kitchen a striking appearance that you’ll love for years to come.

Every homeowner wants their kitchen to be on the cutting edge of style. As we have seen, there are several interesting 2019 design trends that make great choices if you’re thinking of remodeling your kitchen. With a little help from a kitchen remodeling expert, you should be able to decide which of these trends will make your kitchen look the way you want.
