Kitchen With Matte Everything

Who doesn’t love the slick touch of matte finishes? The market is full of matte cabinetry and appliances. It’s perfect for kitchens because they’re easier to keep clean and are guaranteed to not go out of style. Matte is not only for cabinetry, it’s literally all matte! Details come in matte finish too. Brushed and polished brass has come back, and we will see this show up in our light fixtures, handles, faucets, cabinet accents, and sinks.

Polished copper on dark painted finishes will also be a trend, giving us all the contrast and glamour we ever needed. Hardware is the easiest thing to change in your kitchen, so take a risk and try something beautiful and different.

Open Shelving Kitchen

Let’s personalize your kitchen! Open shelving and glass fronted cabinets allow homeowners to showcase their personalities with displays of unique and artistic kitchen and dining room pieces. Also, if you don’t like to have open shelving because you won’t like to reveal the entire content of your cabinetry, textured glass is the solution for you!

This way you can add a wonderful layer of texture to the space and it’s a great tool to mix it up the straight lines of cabinetry and some smooth surfaces, adding a visual and personal touch to a contemporary kitchen.



Counter and Back-splash

In 2019, we are going back to the basics for counters. High contrasting marbles in dark colors are timeless and elegant. Also Terrazzo is now trending! It’s probably not the favorite trend for everyone, but terrazzo made an important come back and has many fans. Nowadays, there exists so many different combinations for terrazzo that can be very interesting for a modern kitchen. For a beautiful appearance, it’s best to combine terrazzo it with harmony with the other design elements.



The Height Back-splash in natural stone are totally in trend. Back-splash is no longer resigned to just being practical elements. Now, designers are using them to create real focal points in the kitchen, and the best part offers practical cleaning benefits, as grouting between tiles can be difficult to keep clean. For a modern and clean look, consider using the same material on the countertops and the back-splash!


Special and Unique Sinks

Details are not just details, they make the design! Say goodbye to common sinks and hello to unique statement designs. Try a sink in gold or a multifunctional sink that can be beautiful and functional to develop the time you spend in the kitchen in a comfortable way.
