Sayonara granite. Once a dominant force in kitchen, granite has been slowly dwindling in popularity over the last five years or so. Aside from making a kitchen look dull and ordinary, granite countertops are known to build-up bacteria under their millions of pocket pores when not properly cleaned up. This makes quartz an up and coming trend this 2019. Timeless and highly durable, it continues to soar high in popularity and will continue to do so in the next five years or so. This haze-gray quartz countertop is truly a darling.

Concrete + Glass. Low in budget but high in creative concept? Go with concrete and glass design elements to make it splash! Think polished concrete countertops, backsplashes and flooring for that industrial, functional charm. Add some sophisticated touch to the whole design with open or floating glass shelves like this Gatco 4246 Latitude II Glass Shelf. Not only luxe and stylish, it’s also convenient to clean and maintain. These two elements together are sure to be one of the more popular kitchen trends for 2019.

New scheme of things, in color that is. It’s not only granite that’s bidding adieu, but also the luxuriant all-white color scheme. In 2019, things are going to get bolder. Think gold and black combinations in cabinetry and appliances, or perhaps matte drama for a more alluring feel. Again, it’s all a matter of practicality complemented with sass in kitchen design. Bold colors, as always, are easier to clean and maintain than white. This Peel and Stick Metal Backsplash Tile from Art3d, for instance, makes a practical choice when adorning your kitchen.

Of bright kitchen stove and stuff. Add more fun into your kitchen design this 2019 with bright stoves, hoods, fridges and stuff. Think relaxing pastels to all-out colorful patterns. If you want something unique yet, but are reluctant to give up your current stoves, hoods, fridge and the like then, a spray paint or a cool decal like the yazi Customized Door Fridge Sticker below will help give your kitchen a new lift.

Add an element of surprise! Another subtle yet powerful way to revamp a dreary kitchen is to inject some sort of element of surprise. Think exotic tiles and backsplashes. Or perhaps, Spanish or Moroccan floor tiles. You can do the long haul of installing such astounding creation into your kitchen or make do with practical trends like these peel-and-stick varieties. Definitely, a great way to nudge some visual impact to your kitchen.

Soulfully positive lighting, anyone? Time to stop adding glaring, bright white optics into your kitchen. Instead, add a more relaxing tone for a richer and nuanced vibe. You don’t have to spend a lot though when upgrading your lighting. This Lutron Caseta Wireless Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch Starter Kit is all you need to achieve that glam look in your kitchen.

Make way for modern, functional minimalist elements. Go for slim, sleek, functional and easy to conceal designs. Think of a slimmer hanging hood, covered kitchen sink and undercounter appliances like this Black & Decker Space Maker Digital Oven. Practical, functional and space-saving– a must-have in 2019’s need for more space. Smaller cooking appliances are always in demand and will continue to be with kitchen trends for 2019.

Smart kitchen rocks! Aside from dimmer switches compatible with Alexa, certain advances in technology truly bring the best in modern kitchens.

Don’t forget — nature! This one never goes out of style. From the vintage era to the new millennium, plants in strategic kitchen spots never fade from its purpose and style. Instead of just any decorative plants though, 2019 trends lean on practicality and health. Aerogardens, for instance, make a great addition when thinking of adding plant life for your kitchen to breathe life. Kitchen Trends for 2019 that include plants are never a bad choice.
