The kitchen is the heart of every home. It’s where the whole family spends time together and talks about their day. The kitchen can also be a very social place. When you have friends come over, for example. If you feel like something is missing from your kitchen and are looking to renovate, you have come to the right place. Nowadays, all modern homes consist of a large room that serves as living room, kitchen and dining room. So, how can we make our kitchen stand out and not only be beautiful, but functional, as well. We have gathered some of the best kitchen design ideas, which are going to be very popular in 2019.
If you are thinking about remodelling your kitchen, you should consider a few things:
How much space do you have? There are many options for creating a kitchen that is functional, beautiful and doesn’t take up a lot of space.
How much are you willing to spend? Kitchen remodelling can be a costly task. There are, however, some ways to compromise and still keep the idea of an amazing kitchen design.
How much time are you going to spend in your kitchen? If you love to cook, or have a large family and children then you probably need more countertop space. What’s more, you will need more space for all of your utensils, pans and pots. Consider adding more cabinets and keeping the kitchen clutter free.
Kitchen design ideas in all white were the big hype in 2018. 2019, however, brings more interesting designs. First of all, adding a pop of colour to your kitchen makes it look modern and timeless. Furthermore, mixing textures and colours will be a big deal in 2019. Don’t be afraid to mix wood with marble, for example. As you can see in the pictures below, this kitchen screams modern and stylish.

Kitchen islands are also going strong as a trend this year. However, instead of creating a taller island, surrounded by bar stools, kitchen island decor is getting the functionality treatment. Level it with the rest of your countertops and use it as a dining table. Furthermore, a taller island can cast a shadow and conceal light. So, two birds with one stone. Interior designers are also getting more and more creative with the materials they use for islands. Countertop waterfalls are going to be very popular, too. What is a countertop waterfall you might ask? Well, it’s when your countertop extends all the way down to the floor and looks very stylish. If you don’t have enough space for a kitchen island, opt out for a peninsula instead. This is a great option for L-shaped kitchens.

Another trend is to conceal your appliances. Stainless steel is gone, instead, people choose to have built-in appliances for a cleaner look. What’s more, in 2017 and 2018 open shelving was on the rise. However, people quickly realised that it is not very functional. Collecting dust on your glasses and dinner sets is probably not a very good idea. Hanging your pans is also not very functional, unless you love dusting all the time, in which case, go right ahead and hang your pans on the wall. Smart kitchens are all the hype right now. A wi-fi coffee machine, which prepares your coffee before you’ve even gotten out of bed. I’m sold! When creating a modern kitchen, it is important to be in with all of the trends and technology. So, a smart kitchen is a good choice.

A key factor in all kitchens is the backsplash. The most important thing is that it is functional and easy to clean. That, however, doesn’t mean that you should compromise the effect it has on your entire kitchen. Beautiful marble and tiled backsplashes can create a focal point in your kitchen. Forget about subway tiles, though, they are everywhere. If you want your kitchen to be different than the rest and leave a lasting impression choose beautiful patterned tiles or marble, instead. 2019 brings the tall backsplash trend, as well. Your backsplash doesn’t have to be just above the countertop. Extend it to the ceiling and you will have an accent wall in your kitchen.

To sum up, 2019 kitchen design ideas give a lot of freedom. You can mix colours, textures and materials. Be creative and make sure that when you are planning your kitchen you choose functionality first. After all, this is going to be the heart of your home. You should feel comfortable in it. The good news is, that, at least, nowadays functionality doesn’t necessarily mean compromising the design. Plan ahead and you will have an amazing kitchen to show off with.
