If your New Year’s resolution is to remodel your old, outdated kitchen, you’re in luck. Modern kitchen remodels are pulling out all the stops and changing the rules of the game. From unique pendant lights to new ways to achieve space versatility, you’ll love what 2019 has in store for kitchen remodels. Here are four brilliant ideas to inspire you.

Truly Brilliant Kitchen Remodeling Ideas for 2019


Quartz is all the rage as we head into the New Year. Quartz finishes on kitchen floors and countertops are still a top trend for 2019. Quartz features dazzling finishes and offers superior durability compared to other common kitchen materials. Quartz will continue to grow in popularity as the granite phase keeps dwindling.

Rich Tones

Goodbye, bright white kitchens, hello moody tones and darker finishes. The bright white trend is ending in 2019 as more nuanced looks take the floor. Go for daring black accents, dark stainless-steel appliances, and a splash of warm brass and copper to add a bit of drama and elegance to your kitchen.

Open Shelving

Showcase your dishes, plants, spices, and cookbooks with open shelving throughout your kitchen. This might not be a brand-new remodeling idea, but it is making a comeback in 2019. Open shelves give your kitchen a splash of color and personality, while also making it easier to access often-used items.

Industrial Accents

Brass, copper, metal, wood, and stone are still very much in-trend as we move out of 2018. The industrial-style kitchen is both bold and breathtaking when designed correctly. Add an herb garden for a welcome splash of natural green and you’ll have a gorgeous space in which to break bread.
