The Top Kitchen Trends Of 2019

Does anyone know what happened to 2018? It feels like the year just flew by. But 2019 is here, and in the past few months we’ve noted an obvious shift towards new kitchen trends. Here, we’re breaking down a few of our favorites, plus easy ways for you to incorporate these fresh new styles into your kitchen.

  1. Grey Kitchen Cabinets

Grey is clearly still having a moment and we love incorporating this modern neutral into the kitchen with cabinets. Grey kitchen cabinets add subtle color and contrast to the room, without stretching too far away from tradition. This finish works well in a variety of themes from transitional to more contemporary, making gray the perfect choice for your kitchen remodel.

  1. Mix and Match Cabinet Finishes

If the idea of grey kitchen cabinets or another color feels like a leap for you, consider mixing two different cabinet colors. Two-toned kitchens are trending in 2019 and with this approach you can lean into change without diving all the way in. Consider an accent wall of cabinets, a kitchen island, or wet bar cabinets in your color of choice. Your kitchen cabinetry can remain predominantly neutral with a splash of creativity.

  1. Matte Black Appliances

Stainless steel appliances have some stiff competition. Matte black is becoming the finish of choice for kitchen appliances and for good reason. This new model is sleek and glamorous, finding itself right at home in more fashion forward kitchens. Choose matte black appliances to create a seamless look among your black cabinets or to create a classic two-toned kitchen with white cabinets.

  1. Natural Stone Backsplash

The love of natural stone is not fizzling out any time soon. In fact, it seems to be popping up in more places than ever before. We’ve moved beyond the natural stone countertop to the natural stone backsplash – and even wall! With the favor towards rustic styles and more organic elements, incorporating natural stone in a more predominant way has become a priority for many homeowners. Bring this trend into your kitchen with an easy-to-install natural stone backsplash from The RTA Store.

  1. Custom Nooks and Features

It seems like everyone wants a place that feels like his or her own. As a result, homes are becoming more customized and personal. Just having your own bedroom is no longer the standard, and kitchens are no longer just for cooking. We now also want a comfy reading nook, a walk-in pantry, a home office, and a fully stocked wet bar for entertaining. Because of these more specific desires, kitchens are becoming more customized. To add a personal touch to your kitchen, think of a new way you can optimize the space you have to meet one of your needs, such as installing wet bar cabinets off of your kitchen to create a home bar or overhauling your pantry into a super organized, clearly labeled dream for the New Year.
