2019 Kitchen Remodeling Trends

Kitchens serve as a central location to gather in your home. The kitchen brings people together to cook a meal and sometimes eat it as well. Even grabbing a snack or a drink can end up being a chance to have a conversation with family or visitors.

Since the kitchen is such a fundamental part of your home, a renovation in this room can help breath new energy into your entire home. People continue to enjoy open floor plans in all areas bringing new options for kitchen design.

We have made our way into 2019, and some kitchen design trends have already picked up.

Beyond a Low Backsplash

The days of simple backsplashes have passed. A recent trend extends the backsplash from an accent to a stylistic embellishment. Instead of stopping about 16 inches from the counter, backsplashes soar upward, sometimes to the ceiling. This shift maintains the functional side of backsplashes yet allows for new opportunities to break up the wall’s appearance.

Opening Your Kitchen With Glass Walls

The open floor plan has become prevalent in homes, offices, and even retail spaces. The stark divides between rooms in a house or cubicles in an office feel overly stifling for most people.

But, if you aren’t ready to jump into an open model yet, consider a light separation between rooms with glass room dividers. The glass offers views into the living room while also containing the cooking smells. This approach allows you to connect with other family members while in separate rooms.

Open Shelving

Continuing the theme of light open models in your kitchen brings us to open shelving. Instead of traditional upper cabinets, consider open shelves using metal, wood, or glass. Drawing inspiration from retail spaces, the openness positions your kitchenware as display items. These framed shelves can join your closed cabinets or completely replace them.

Pastel and Light Accents

The whitewashed and even gray elements in years past continues to fade in popularity. People now opt for light tones to bring lively joy into their kitchen. Pastel colored cabinets add blushes of color while remaining soothing. A pastel color compliments bold or natural colors adding a pleasant touch to your kitchen.
