From statement sinks, new trends in counter tops, tiling and kitchen colour palettes to industrial flourishes and statement flooring, 2019 is looking good for kitchens! We take a look at all the hottest kitchen design trends for this year and beyond.

Dark kitchens & two-toned cabinets

Classic white kitchens will always have their place but there’s no doubt that when it comes to leading kitchen trends in 2019, dark hued, more ambient, moody kitchen designs are back. Two-toned high/low kitchen cabinets are also a feature of the 2019 kitchen design trend with sleek Scandinavian style timber cabinetry teamed with matte dark-toned cabinets.

Open shelving

Open shelving will continue to trend in kitchen designs into 2019 – turning the inside out and showcasing signature kitchen decor, pleasing pantry items, fresh produce and high quality cookware is key feature.

Counter top materials

Bye-bye granite. Quartz bench tops, especially lookalike polished concrete quartz bench tops are the flavour of the year in 2019. Not only does quartz look fantastic but it’s non-porous and virtually indestructible.

Matte finishes

No more gloss. Matte everything, and kitchen cabinetry and appliances in particular, is absolutely key to 2019 kitchen design trends. Matte is timelessly cool and is also much easier to keep clean than gloss services so this trend is definitely a win-win.

Raw materials & grained timber

Incorporating organic elements in your kitchen design is on trend in 2019 with raw materials and grained timber in cabinets, bench tops and shelving a signature design feature.

A touch of industrial

Industrial is still an influence in kitchen design in 2019 though less overtly as it has been in previous years. Think industrial inspired lighting, industrial grid lines in tiles and cabinetry and incorporating signature original building materials into your kitchen design.

Spanish & vintage feature tiling

Add a touch of colour & vibrancy to your kitchen with vintage, Spanish or Moroccan tiles and you’ll be right on trend when it comes to kitchen design this year. Perfect for splash backs or feature wall tiling.

Unique sinks & tap ware

Copper & brass are not going away any time soon when it comes to sinks & tap ware. Unique sinks & statement tap ware are both key to 2019 kitchen design trends.

Eclectic mix & match features

If you’re the kind of person who likes a little bit of everything & can’t decide between boho and classic then 2019 and beyond is for you in the kitchen design department. Eclectic mix and match styles and elements are one of the leading kitchen design trends this year. Mix signature vintage furniture items like tables & kitchen chairs with more contemporary elements, play with colour, texture (kitchen rugs are in) & consider some statement flooring.

Coloured upholstery for stools

Kitchen stools are getting their colour on in 2019 with coloured upholstery making an appearance when it come to kitchen island stools.

Statement flooring

Bold, patterned and even colourful statement flooring for kitchens is a hot trend continuing into 2019 – checker board designs are extremely cool – bold yet with a nod to classic 1950s kitchen heydays.

Our Vastscapes Luxury Sheet Vinyl flooring in Black and White Checkerboard is a great (and very affordable) kitchen flooring option that’s right on trend in 2019.
