Whether your current kitchen needs a complete overhaul, or you simply want to refresh a tired scheme, there are plenty of new and exciting kitchen design trends for 2019.
From curved edges, fluted glass and exposed kitchen storage through to state-of-the-art appliances, there is plenty of choice whatever your personal style is.
A trend that keeps making an appearance, fluted glass, is a revival firmly cemented in kitchen design. A great option if you are wanting to give your kitchen a quick update, fluted glass is best used on cabinetry. Providing plenty of texture and interest, it can help to bounce light around while still providing plenty of simplicity for contemporary design. Oh, and it offers a certain degree of privacy, so if you’re cupboards aren’t the tidiest, this is the option for you.

This trend has been around for a while and it continues to play a prominent role when it comes to the finishing touches of your kitchen design. Geometric patterns still remain the go-to pattern, but we’re seeing a wave of new colourways with a focus on blue and teal.
Patterned flooring can come in the form of many different materials, so think carefully which will suit your lifestyle best. Vinyl can be a cheaper option, while ceramic tiles are mid-market and porcelain high-end. The great thing about porcelain is that it can be used outside, so you can continue your patterned flooring to merge two spaces.
Benches and banquet seating
We know that having a kitchen island features on most people’s wish list when it comes to kitchen design, but a new trend is emerging for informal dining.
Built-in benches and booths are now the go-to seating option for kitchens, as we spend more time living in them. Maximising available space, this style of seating offers a more comfortable choice over bar stools at a kitchen island and provides plenty of opportunity to relax.
