Like any other industry, kitchen remodeling and cabinetry is a continually evolving industry. While it’s true that some looks never seem to go out of style, many consumers want to see a little innovation when it comes to their kitchen designs.
Here are a few kitchen trends to keep an eye out for in 2019.
Kitchens that feel like a sports car
For several years, variety hoods have actually been an afterthought when renovating a kitchen. Kitchen cabinetry, lighting, or floor coverings tend to be more obvious elements homeowners consider when it comes to remodeling their kitchen.
That is, until now.
Previously only available is high-end appliances that would exceed several months of your mortgage, appliances that come in sporty colors like cherry red or blue make the list as some of the hottest kitchen trends in 2019.
In particular, black appliances and cabinets became all the rage.
According to Sebring:
“Although white cabinets are a classic look that can be used in almost any kind of kitchen style, we are slowly starting to see them on the way out! We expect white to start declining in popularity throughout 2019. To break up the all-white kitchen expect to see islands in a variety of different paint colors or wood stain colors. The mixing of finishes create a needed accent piece and additional pops-of-color for the brave of heart...

It should also be noted that with this trend, stainless steel seems and stark white kitchen design seems to be on a downward trend when it comes to modern interior design.
Unfortunately, we have mixed feelings about this as a long-lasting trend. While too much of a good thing can be overdone, white is a classic look that has withstood the test of time.
Ditching the Upper Cabinets
According to Amanda Gates from Gates Interior Design, one of the trends to be on the lookout for in 2019 is ditching those upper cabinets. Gates notes that:
“... as the minimalist movement takes shape, I’m seeing clients wanting their spaces to appear as clean as possible. The best way to achieve an openness is to eliminate those upper cabinets. If you’re building or remodeling this works beautifully by adding a true butlers pantry, or perhaps an antique armoire. But the hottest trends rise to the top at KBIS and guess what’s hot? NO upper cabinets.”
For many people, this might make their heart skip a beat. What?!? No upper cabinets? After all, most people have an issue with cabinet space as is.
What’s interesting is that several modern interior designers are opting for open shelving instead of the traditional cabinet. Of course, going with this option depends on the overall aesthetic of your home and if it makes sense to go the minimalistic route
Maximizing Usable Space
Creating a space for kitchen essentials becomes critical, especially if you’re opting to go with a modern, clean look.
If you’re like most homeowners, the cabinet that stores your pots and pans can get cluttered. You may even resort to just stacking your cookware in the cabinet and closing the door as quickly as possible, hoping to avoid any serious bodily injury should the door open.
To address this problem, we recommend using in-cabinet organization systems, like Rev A Shelf. While these systems are relatively easy to install, they can be life-changing.
In-cabinet storage systems can allow users to store nearly anything from cookware to spice jars, all on convenient slide-out shelves.
