Here are the hottest kitchen color trends and interior design fashions for 2019 – which one will you choose?
How to Use Hot New Kitchen Color Trends to Revamp Your Home
From color pops to rustic textures, the small details will turn your kitchen from so-so into so-fabulous. Pick one or two of the top kitchen design trends for this year to bring your interior decor bang up to date – without splurging your life savings.
1. Cute Coral Rules 2019
Coral is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 and it’s easy to see why. The fun tone works with neutrals as well as earthy and green tones to lift any decor.
The bright orange-based color works well as an accent in simple accessories like chair cushions, or as a statement on your walls or cupboards.
Add in some greenery for a lush Southwestern feel, or insert bright blue hues into your design to really make your new decor pop.
2. Striking Stripes Refresh White Kitchens
An all-white kitchen will never go out of fashion but can sometimes feel a little bland.
Spice it up with stripes! From startling brights to muted grays, stripes are easy to work into your decor to create a focal point in a sea of white.
3. Update Your Cupboard Doors
An inexpensive yet stylish way to update any kitchen is to replace or repaint your cupboard doors. Refinishing your cabinets is far less time-consuming and budget-heavy than replacing your entire kitchen.
You can try uniform block colors in classic navy, white, or black tones – or have fun mixing up light and dark shades to create visual interest. Darker shades on lower cabinets and light ones on upper cupboards will add a sense of depth and height to any kitchen.
Changing the handles on your cupboards is an ideal finishing touch for cabinet-rescue project. Decorative handles can bring a sense of feminine style to your kitchen, while an easy-open bar or round handles are a subtle way to complete the look you want.
4. Sleek Lighting Adds Practical Style
Kitchen lighting is a simple way to transform the space without making any major changes.
Under-cupboard lighting is a subtle yet easy way to transform your kitchen. Strip LED lights are easy to install and add a practical element, too.
If you want something a little cozier, try opting for subtle corner lighting to enhance the room. A statement ceiling pendant, a jar of string lights, or a stunning floor lamp can all radically change how your kitchen looks and feels.
5. Mixed Wood Tones Equal Pure Rustic Charm
Farmhouse rustic and simple wood tones give a classic charm to country-style kitchens.
Mix wood tones, choosing pale woods for cupboard doors and deep mahogany for flooring. The warmth of dark wood creates a welcoming and cozy atmosphere, while lighter colors create accents to lift the look and create the illusion of space.
6. Timeless Neutrals Are Still a Thing
The clue’s in the word ‘timeless’: neutrals never go out of fashion. You can, however, update them for 2019 by using several earthy colors with pops of greenery or an accent bright like teal or yellow.
A neutral kitchen is a perfect canvas for the accessory-lover. Add fun novelty brights to your on-counter accessories, and scatter your kitchen chairs with geometric patterns to create an interesting focal point.
7. Go Sci-Fi with Seamless Storage
If you’re after a full remodel, sleek cupboards with integrated appliances will future-proof your kitchen for years to come.
Hidden appliances in seamless touch-to-open cupboards create a futuristic sci-fi look that is also exceptionally easy to keep clean and tidy. Smart storage tucked away behind innocuous-looking walls and cupboards will transform even tiny kitchens.
8. Mix Textures in Monochrome
If you like timeless neutrals but want something a little different, try using monochrome with black, white, and gray – and mix it up with textures, instead.
Matte gray cupboard doors can stand out with shiny gray handles; chalkboard-black worktops will contrast with a glossy over splashback.
You can even introduce more fun with monochrome patterns, from retro prints to geometric designs, to create visual interest without using the full rainbow spectrum.
9. Incorporate Greenery on Kitchen Shelves
Make your kitchen greenery work for you: plant a herb garden with your favorites and give it pride of place in your window or tabletop to show it off.
For a more subtle outside-inside look, add succulents and cacti to your kitchen shelves. The color is guaranteed to complement any scheme, and greenery is proven to make your home environment more pleasant, too!
10. Muted Fittings Complement Bright Colors
Bright colors can be tricky to get right: they’re best used either as an accent to neutrals or in an over-the-top everything-is-a-rainbow way.
Whatever style you prefer, your fittings can underpin the color scheme when you use muted metals. Pewter and antique brass, for example, are neutral and not flashy – making sure the rest of your design takes center stage.
