5 Trending Kitchen Designs You Need to Know About in 2019

Whether you’re planning a full kitchen remodel this year or a more modest update, you need to know about the hottest trends of 2019. Overhauling the kitchen is a big investment, so you want the changes you make to retain their value and relevance for years to come.
We’ve highlighted five kitchen trends for 2019 that are modern and fresh, but not so niche that they’ll be out of style in a year or two.

1: Interior Sliding Doors

Sliding glass and wood doors have been trending for years, and their popularity remains strong—for good reason. Interior Sliding glass doors are modern, versatile, and stylish.
Incorporate interior sliding doors into your kitchen space by:

  • Replacing a swinging door for your walk-in pantry with a sliding glass door. A sliding door not only adds visual interest, but it’s also less clunky and eases access into the pantry.
  • Cordoning off the kitchen from the dining area or living room with sliding doors or glass room partitions. In homes with open floor plans, room dividers add style and help create two distinct spaces.

2: Dark Hues and Matte Finishes

Bright white has dominated kitchens for the last decade—a trend that is officially over. Darker colors are taking center stage as the decade comes to a close. Black matte cabinetry, fixtures, and hardware are especially popular this year, along with rich browns and shades of gray, taupe, and tan. These distinctive hues create a moody tone reminiscent of the 1970s, but with a completely modern look and feel.

3: Natural Accents

If you decide to embrace the trend of darker hues for your kitchen, it’s important to balance them out with natural elements. Your options are practically unlimited—from incorporating reclaimed wood into the space to creating a natural stone backsplash.

4: Concealed Range Hoods and Induction Cooktops

Statement hoods are out, and concealed hoods are in. We’re seeing this trend everywhere: invisible or near-invisible range hoods that keep the focus on appliances, cabinets, fixtures, and hardware. Many designers are opting to completely conceal the hood behind cabinet fronts.
Clunky oven/range combinations are also being replaced with sleek induction cooktops, for a seamless, minimalist look.

5: Open Shelving

The trend of open shelving is a welcome counterweight to the near obsession with minimalism in kitchens today. Open shelves allow you to showcase your kitchenwares and favorite heirlooms. They also provide easy access to frequently used items, like cooking oils and spices.
