2019 Kitchen Design Trends

With the many sources of inspiration and countless trends that emerge, it is often difficult to keep track of the latest design trends. Surveys and studies conducted by industry organizations, such as the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) and Houzz, can offer a synthesis of the latest trends and provide figures to back up anecdotal evidence. Recent surveys by both the NKBA and Houzz indicate there are many seismic shifts occurring in the kitchen design sphere, and the Washington Post highlights some of the top trends the surveys identify.
Colorful Cabinets and Appliances 
Painted cabinets, including the base of a center island, are brightening more kitchens today, as are appliances with bright exteriors. “Colorful cabinets or pops of color are very much in for kitchen design,” says Allie Mann, a senior designer-interiors specialist with Case Design/Remodeling in Falls Church, Va. “While shades of blue remain a popular go-to color, we’re starting to see more and more green accents gaining interest. When clients consider bringing in color with appliances or cabinetry, they want to tie into another element such as the tile backsplash or window treatments to add continuity to the design.”
Transitional and Contemporary Styles
The top three styles anticipated to be trendy for kitchens over the next three years are transitional, contemporary and farmhouse, according to the NKBA. Transitional style includes natural light, light-colored smooth cabinets, lots of drawers and integrated storage, while contemporary kitchens are more minimalistic.
High-Tech Features
The top three tech innovations anticipated to dominate kitchens over the next three years include mobile-device accommodations, such as the ability to control appliances with your smartphone; voice-enabled home automation platforms; and safety technology that alerts a cellphone of an undesirable situation.
While refrigerators that provide inventory updates are available, they are far down the list of technology anticipated to be widely adopted in the next few years. More common items already adopted by homeowners include faucets, induction cooktops, and steam and convection ovens.
