Every year brings a wealth of new kitchen trends to behold. If you are planning to design your new dream new kitchen, or are looking for an inkling of inspiration, there are many options to consider. Here are just a few of the top trends for kitchens in 2019.

Raw materials

An ode to the past whilst maintaining a contemporary feel, kitchens in 2019 are a prime example of the back to basics approach. Wood and stone are just two raw materials enjoying a return to the limelight.

The pantry

Breaking the trend of hiding your cupboard contents well out of sight, pantries have made a serious comeback. Display your stock cupboard staples in designated pantry space, allowing you to organise those go-to, essential ingredients.

Bright colour

Whilst an injection of colour in your kitchen was once frowned upon, bold colours are in for 2019. This can liven up the contemporary kitchen and add a fun feel to your overall home. Coloured ranges and cupboards continue to be increasingly popular additions to kitchens this year.

Matte black

From your oven to your kitchen countertop, matte black is an excellent colour of contrast which makes the minimalist white kitchen seem like a distant memory of 2018. Matte black looks particularly elegant when paired with wood.


Technology was once separated from the kitchen but 2019 has secured its integration. Make your kitchen smarter with a fridge that includes a touchscreen and interior cameras as standard. You can also guarantee that your day will get off to a good start with a Wi-Fi-enabled coffee machine, allowing you to pre-prepare your morning latte ready for the busy day ahead.
