The best kitchen decorating trends of spring 2019 are those that add style texture and metallic beauty to the kitchen and do so without disturbing the existing style or theme of the space. Some are designed to make the kitchen much more efficient while others add aesthetics in a brilliant fashion. From a backsplash that makes a big impact to pantry shelves that save ample space, this is a look at the best kitchen trends for spring this year.
Terrazzo makes a Difference
Kitchens in 2019 are exploring different surfaces and those that are making a difference are ones that last the test of time while also helping provide a simple, elegant backdrop. Terrazzo flooring and tiles can be used to craft a sturdy setting where spills can be easily handled and wear and tear is never an issue. This is even more essential with social kitchens making a big comeback in the last few years. A space for meeting friends, family and having a good time, the terrazzo floor makes your kitchen the perfect hangout that lasts the test of time.
Warm Metallics Add Glint
Metallics have been a hot trend for a while now and with hot metallics like brass, you simply cannot go wrong. Brass fixtures can be easily added to the existing kitchen without making too many alterations and you would not have to splurge a whole lot for the smart makeover as well. Adding warm metallic accents to the kitchen in neutral hues allows them to stand out visually, making the kitchen refreshingly contemporary.
Pull-Out Shelves for Pantries
Even the smallest kitchens these days are utilizing the many benefits of a smart pantry. Tiny pantries are replacing boring shelves and cabinets in urban kitchens as homeowners are once again turning towards this timeless feature. Take your pantry to a whole new level this year with pull-out shelves that give your even more space and utilize the depth of the shelves fully. Just tuck them away when not in use and you will not even know that they are there! Bespoke solutions and smart pantries with slim pull-out shelves promise to transform your small kitchen instantly.
Backsplash with a Bang
Gone are the days with boring old backsplashes where white and gray hold sway. Now is the time to shift to a backsplash that makes a much bigger impact, be it in the form of vivacious color, pattern that charms or one that brings textural contrast. Green backsplashes are currently popular in the kitchen and for those who wish to try out something more eclectic, a mirrored backsplash or those in black are ones that are a must try. Patchwork tiled backsplash is also a fun idea for those who love pattern and an overdose of color!
Natural Stone for the Island
The kitchen island is the heart and soul of the modern kitchen that combines form and functionality in a fluid fashion. Natural stone islands are those that are clad in beautiful stone and its many intricate variations shine through elegantly when used right. Marble kitchen islands and finishes have been around forever and now quartz and granite tops are also making a big comeback in the last few seasons. From anti-bacterial stone countertops and islands that promote healthy living to those that usher in opulence and brightness, stone kitchen islands are a showstopper in every single way.
