Large Backsplashes

A decade ago, kitchen backsplashes were primarily used as a way of defending the walls in the kitchen from spills, scratches, and the inevitable splatters that occur while cooking. Backsplashes have become much more than a layer of protection in recent decades, and a great backsplash is a standard component in virtually any luxury kitchen design. Backsplashes in 2019 will be larger than they have been in recent years, with their height extending almost to the ceiling. Small, easy-open cabinets may provide a subtle frame around the tall backsplashes, but make no mistake about it — large backsplashes will be one of the most eye-catching features in 2019 kitchen remodels.

Black And White Color Schemes

With pops of color becoming popular in 2017 and in 2018, 2019 will likely see a reversion to simple, monochrome tones. There’s something elegant and classy about a kitchen that takes advantage of deep blacks and bright whites, and everything from the countertops to the cabinets and backsplash can be perfectly coordinated so that the space isn’t too light or too dark. Many homeowners who take advantage of the simple black-and-white kitchen design also choose to add herb gardens or small plants that really tie the room together with bright splashes of green. On a similar note, matte black appliances are expected to become a popular addition to kitchens in 2019. Stainless steel and sleek black have been popular options for a number of years, but fingerprints, smudges, and greasemarks are all major drawbacks of these finishes. While some homeowners don’t mind the extra upkeep, others prefer to have low-maintenance appliances throughout the kitchen that won’t need to be thoroughly cleaned after every meal. Matte black appliances don’t show smudges or fingerprints as easily, and they can be incorporated into virtually any design.

Back To Basics

European-inspired kitchen designs that make use of dark tones and minimalistic kitchen cabinets are becoming more and more popular, but so are rustic-looking kitchens that utilize materials with a raw, nearly unfinished quality. Brightly finished wooden cabinets, marble and granite countertops, and even natural stone backsplashes will all become sought-after kitchen design elements in 2019. If you’re looking for the perfect way to pull off a kitchen remodel in your country getaway home, this might be the inspiration you’ve been looking for!

Digital Technology

Technological innovation drives our society, and there’s no shortage of creative innovations to be found in the kitchen. While we generally focus more on the fundamental kitchen remodeling elements here at Affordable Granite & Cabinetry Outlet, the innovative technology available for use in the kitchen is truly amazing. Kitchen cabinets can be outfitted with chargers that keep your appliances or smartphone powered at all times, built-in wine fridges can keep your most treasured bottles at an ideal temperature, and you can even turn on your espresso maker from the comfort of your own bed thanks to WiFi-enabled home appliance systems. No matter which kitchen design you choose to utilize, make sure that you’ve outfitted your kitchen with the latest and greatest tech — you won’t be disappointed!
