The Top Kitchen Design Trends that will be Big in 2019
1. White is out; Copper is In
For decades, the all-white kitchen was dominating home design magazines and interior decoration trends. This year, white has finally moved over to make way for another gorgeous colour – Copper. Copper pans, serveware, copper bottles are all trending right now. The best part – serving food in copperware is beneficial to the body in many ways.
2. Chuck out the Handles on your Cabinets
A simple way to make your kitchen modern and contemporary is to go with cabinets that don’t have handles. Sleek, streamlined cabinets without handles are the latest in kitchen design. Instead of traditional handles, interior decorators are using holes in geometric patterns and shapes, of varying sizes. Generally, you can find round holes with long indents cut into the cabinet that also serves as a handle.
In keeping with the minimalist style that has been trending for years, handle-less cabinets are all the rage. This design trend not only makes your kitchen look modern but also gives the illusion of more space.
3. Bring the Herb Garden Inside
This is another trend that is big this year. Setting up indoor herb gardens, especially in the kitchen is a popular trend that has been making the circles on Pinterest boards for some time now. With healthy eating on the rise, having an indoor herb garden nearby while cooking is quite handy.
Fresh herbs add complex flavours to your home-cooked meals, and the indoor herb garden fits the bill perfectly. To ensure that your herbs grow well, make sure that your kitchen receives adequate sunlight.
4. The Kitchen is the new Spot for Dining
This year, you can see an increase in the number of homes installing kitchen islands. For those who don’t know, kitchen islands are independent counters in the centre of the kitchen with concealed storage. Generally, kitchen islands served as a casual dining spot, mostly for breakfasts. It also provides additional counter space for elaborate meal preparations.
Now, the humble kitchen island has finally got its spot under the spotlight. From being an impromptu dining counter, the kitchen island has morphed into a regular dining space, with chairs on the side for hearty conversations at the table.
