Kitchen trends often have a longer life cycle than design and furnishing trends relating to other parts of the home. One trend that is likely to get even stronger over 2019 is banquette seating, which is practical, unpretentious and photogenic. Natural, un-stained wooden cabinetry is also likely to continue to proliferate, as will blue and green colored cabinetry and two-toned cabinetry. Brass hardware and matte black finishes are also likely to have a strong showing in 2019.
- Banquette seating became popular in 2018 because it is casual and fun from a design standpoint.
- The trendy white kitchens of recent years are falling out of favor as natural wood cabinetry is becoming popular again.
- Instead of putting mats on the kitchen floor, it is now trendy to have a high-end rug that would also work for a living room.
