New Year, New Kitchen – A Look At 2019’s Biggest Trends

After the gluttony and guilt of Christmas, New Year brings a craving for rejuvenation. Updates to our minds and bodies begin, but also, for many our homes. So to kick-start your 2019 with some home décor inspiration, we’ve put together three of the upcoming year’s most titillating trends to transform your kitchen.

Mother Nature – we’ve always been her biggest advocate, so when we saw magazines like House Beautiful promoting the increased use of natural materials in our kitchens, and in particular natural stones, we couldn’t have been more excited. This year you’ll see granite, slate and marble, not just on the countertops but up the walls, as far as the ceiling, and waterfall edges meeting the floor. Even the classic butler sink can now be found in a cool Carrara marble, cut from a single block of smooth stone. But these elemental kitchens will also include plenty of wood and metal too.

Industrial Quartz – one of the biggest manufacturers of composite quartz is Caesarstone, and they have added five new colours to their collection inspired by one of the biggest trends in recent years, the industrial look. Shades resembling concrete and rusty metals will provide a rough and unpolished look, with an authentic texture to kitchen worktops, floors and splashbacks.

Matte Black is Back – fixtures, hardware, and décor all in matte black. But not in the contemporary, stark style as before, but as part of a twist on the classic Shaker or farmhouse. Matte black slate worktops contrast with dark wood cabinets, alongside a matte black fridge.
