The kitchen is the hub of any home. It’s where families and friends gather to cook and share meals together. It is a very high-traffic space and it generally influences the design of the rest of the house, especially if the home has an open plan layout. Whatever colors and materials are used in the kitchen normally set the tone for other areas that are adjacent to it, for example the dining and living areas. 

In this article, we’ve gathered all the hottest 2019 kitchen trends to look out for so you can present new, contemporary ideas to your clients in the upcoming year.
