Kitchen Trends for 2019

Design trends change every year, and every room of the house has different design rules. While most home design choices are based on your preferences, knowing what is popular today can give your inspiration as well as keep you from spending money on an outdated remodel.


Here’s what’s coming for kitchens in 2019:


1. Black, Gray & White Counters


Black or deep blue granites are perfect for a moody, dramatic kitchen, or to serve as a contrast to light cabinets.

Concrete is increasing in popularity for countertops; however, using concrete in a remodel can be expensive, and the final surface is often coarse. A smooth gray granite or quartz can give you a similar natural gray look, without the drawbacks of concrete.

While all-white kitchens are losing steam, white countertops are not. Many homeowners are opting for classic white countertops to allow for more creativity and color in the backsplash, sink, appliances, and cabinets.

2. Waterfall Edges

Waterfall edges are created by adding another slab of granite, flush from the counter to the floor. Waterfall edges are versatile and work especially well in modern, vintage, or Scandinavian styled kitchens.

Advantages of Waterfall Edges

  • Show off more of your stone. A waterfall edge is a sleek, minimalistic showcase of your lovely granite, quartz, or marble countertop.
  • Protect lower cabinets. End panels for cabinets can easily be scratched or damaged, especially with wood or beadboard. Why not use the most durable material in your kitchen — granite or quartz — and use a little more to save you repairs and refinishing later on?
  • Make your kitchen trendy, but timeless. The waterfall edge gained popularity in 2017, and it continues to be used more and more into 2019. Unlike other kitchen trends, the waterfall edge will not become unfashionable, because it plays on the longevity of the natural stones used to create them.



3. Two-Tone Cabinets

In 2019, you don’t need to stick to one color for your cabinets. Many kitchens include one color on the top cabinets and a different, often darker color, on the lower cupboards.


You can choose neutral or bolder colors, depending on your overall kitchen style, just be sure to match both colors with your backsplash and countertop.

4. Statement Backsplashes

Patterned Tiles

Going into 2019, people are moving away from the traditional, impersonal kitchen and beginning to add more personality to their cooking space. Patterned tile gives you a larger visual impact to show off your personal style a bit more.


If you aren’t comfortable with exotic patterns around your entire kitchen, an accent wall backsplash only above your stovetop is a happy medium.

Granite or Quartz

If you have a granite or quartz color you adore, you can use even more of it to create a full stone backsplash. A granite backsplash is an elegant way to show off your luxury counter material. Plus, the granite or quartz will be incredibly easy to clean and maintain.

Stone backsplashes have been a favorite for a while, and they aren’t going anywhere in 2019. Being able to choose the size, color, and pattern of your stone gives you added customization.


Opalescent Granite

Stamped Tin

If you’re designing a vintage style kitchen, a stamped tin backslash could be the addition you’re looking for. Tin walls are also easy to clean and last for many years, making them a great long-term solution.

Non-Traditional Tile Shapes

If you aren’t ready for bold colors in the kitchen, but still want to build some creativity into your space, consider changing up your tile shape. Hexagons, herringbone, and scallops are all replacing squares and rectangles as go-to backsplash tile shapes.


5. Undercounter Appliances

We’re all dreaming of more counter space, and moving appliances under the countertop can give you this extra space while achieving the minimalist style that has become so popular.


Many types of appliances are receding into the cabinetry to show off more of your counter design, as well as leaving room for cooking or unique decorations.

6. Statement Sinks

Designers are rethinking the basic kitchen sink in 2019. Bright metallics, hammered finishes, and intricate designs in sinks are all becoming more popular, turning one of the more practical elements of your kitchen into an accent piece.

7. Pops of Color

From your cabinets to your backsplash and décor, a pop of color paired with your neutrals can give your room personality. If you choose a classic and long-lasting counter, you can switch out your accent color as an inexpensive kitchen redesign.
