Around the world, kitchens are one of the most important areas in the home, and St. Paul kitchens are no different. More than just a place to prepare food, kitchens are places where we gather with family, entertain friends, and where many of us enjoy expressing our unique personalities in the décor. So, if you’re planning a kitchen upgrade this year, or if you just like to keep up on emerging design trends, we put together this short list of kitchen design elements that are beginning to catch on in 2019.

Vinyl Plank In St. Paul

Dark Woods

One of the most notable design trends of 2019 is the move from the all-white themes of recent years to darker, more somber tones. Dark hardwoods and wood-look flooring, such as luxury vinyl plank, are expected to be a very popular choice in St. Paul kitchens this year.

Tile Kitchen Backsplash in St. Paul

Tall Tile Backsplashes

Backsplashes are being called on to make a bigger impact on the kitchen’s overall design in 2019. High, multi-colored tile backsplashes are likely to be especially popular as focal points in the room. Interestingly, designers have noticed fewer people are using white subway tile in backsplashes, though subway tile is still a classic and timeless choice.

Dark Hardwood Flooring in St. Paul

Matte Finish, Unseen Appliances, and Open Glass Shelves

Along with the increased use of dark colors this year, designers will call upon more subdued finishes throughout the kitchen as well. Both of these elements compliment chic open glass shelving, stowed appliances, and minimalist furniture design.
