Top Kitchen Color Trends for 2019

For 2019, we predict classic kitchens with white cabinets will still be most popular followed by trendy kitchens with jewel toned cabinets that will dominate the scene.  Kitchens with dark wood toned cabinets will follow close behind.

Today we partnered with Julep Tile and Kitchens by Wedgewood in Louisville, CO to show you a collection of curated kitchen color palettes.  Kirsten Sharp is the incredibly talented owner and designer for Julep Tile. She and her team create beautiful handmade tiles inspired by vintage wallpaper designs.

Classic White Kitchens

We love the look of classic white kitchen cabinets with white quartz countertops and statement backsplashes that you will love forever.  Subway tile is great, but we have more options!

This classic white cabinet is paired with the Julep Tile Bloom backsplash.  The pattern adds texture with a soft beige color scheme paired with a quartz countertop that mimics warm Calacatta marble. The gold veins in the quartz tie in with the beige tile color.  Paint your walls Manchester Tan to pull the look together.  Manchester Tan is an amazing no-fail neutral paint color that looks great with any décor.

Just because we love these white cabinets, we matched them with a subtle two-toned tile backsplash reminiscent of an old-fashioned wallpaper.  For simplicity, we paired it with a solid white quartz.  Finish the room with Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan, the most neutral paint color in the universe.

We have one more color palette for your classic white cabinets.  Add a gorgeous two-toned blue Bloom tile pattern, and a solid white quartz countertop.  Complete this dramatic white kitchen with navy blue walls, painted with Benjamin Moore Hale Navy.

Dark Wood Cabinets are the new Gray

This modern dark walnut slab cabinet door is paired with Julep Tile backsplash with a two-toned modern pattern reminiscent of encaustic tiles.  We keep the rest of the palette simple with a white quartz countertop and Sherwin Williams Westhighland White paint color.

Warm Gray Rustic Kitchens

Pick a modern driftwood cabinet color and keep the rest of the finishes light and airy.  This creamy white backsplash adds texture with matching white quartz. Tie it all together with BM Classic Gray paint, with the perfect green-gray undertones.

The Verdict:

We will continue to see white kitchens in 2019, but with more interesting backsplashes and beautiful color combinations.  Jewel colored cabinets will be popular, paired with light counters and complementary colored backsplashes.  We will see more neutral woods such as walnut and driftwood colored tones, paired with white counters and backsplashes.
