The kitchen is the heart of the home. More than just a place to cook, it’s where friends and families gather. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your kitchen before putting your house on the market or keeping tabs on the latest styles while looking for a new home, these are the top kitchen trends you’ll see in 2019.
Open it up
The open kitchen has long been favored as a practical design that blends cooking and entertaining, and this year, it goes a step further with open shelving. Personalize your kitchen by showing off cutlery and tableware while also creating a more fluid cooking space that feels light and airy. Top kitchen brands like Poggenpohl and Bulthaup are leading the way with their latest collections.
Cooking on Command
Smart appliances are connecting with voice-control assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant. Say the command and you can preheat the oven while entertaining guests or fill a pot with water as you prep the ingredients. It’s like having a virtual sous-chef await every order as you seamlessly control your culinary domain.
In 2019, cabinetry no longer has to be limited to a single color. Designers are having fun with two-toned cabinets that mix and match different shades to break the mold. For a bold statement, try pairing colors that complement each other and energize your kitchen with a striking palette.
Full steam ahead
Combi-steam ovens are all the rage among the stay-at-home gourmand, combining convection and steam functionality. By controlling both temperature and moisture levels, you can cook foods that retain more nutrients and flavor. Whether you’re hosting a housewarming party or having a quiet family dinner, combi-steam ovens provide next-level cooking possibilities.
From Calacatta marble to Moroccan tile, backsplashes are becoming the visual centerpiece of the kitchen in 2019. By getting creative with your backsplash, you can introduce a texture or pattern that brings the whole room together.
