I spend a lot of time looking at product trends. But seldom do I look at style trends. Today, it changes. As the kitchen is unquestionably the most essential room of the house – not only because that’s where the fridge is located 😋, but because it has the most significant impact on the overall design of a home – it only makes sense to start by look at this year’s hottest kitchen design styles.

Ross’s Discount Home Centre’s kitchen cabinets are best described as modern in style, however, paired with the right splashback, benchtop, and tile combination, they can be transformed into any of this year’ tending design styles. And, you’ll have saved yourself a LOT of money in the process!

To get inspiration for your new kitchen, consider these top five kitchen design styles of 2019.

Minimalistic Kitchen Design

Minimalistic kitchen design has really taken off over the last couple of years to become the most popular design style, and not only for kitchens but entire homes.

Minimalistic kitchen design is achieved by having a predominantly white palette with as few as possible design elements, to create an open, clutter-free space.

Minimalistic kitchen design is also often infused with Scandinavian and monochromatic design styles.

Simplicity is the key to pulling off this kitchen design style, and our gloss white kitchen cabinets are the ideal choice to achieve this look.

Modern Kitchen Design

Modern kitchen design is a style that will never fade. It offers a lot of flexibility in design style. However, it is best characterised by its simple clean lines – think frameless cabinets, simple tapware and hardware, and clean lines with no embellishments.

Modern kitchen design is often confused with contemporary kitchen design. However, the big difference is that contemporary kitchens have a focal point, whereas modern kitchens avoid creating a focal point.

Beach Style Kitchen Design

Beach Style kitchen design is a popular choice for coastal residents. This contemporary style using a predominantly white palette paired with natural fittings such as wood shelves, timber benchtops and cane light pendants to add a coastal touch.

Beach Style kitchen design is also often infused with Hamptons and contemporary coast design styles.

Traditional Kitchen Design

You can never go wrong in choosing the traditional kitchen design style. Defined best as having a lot of detail in the cabinetry, and lots of embellishments, traditional kitchen design is classic and everlasting.

Traditional kitchens feature framed cabinetry and drawers, with industrial-styled lighting. While the cabinetry is usually white, coloured cabinets are found in traditional kitchens with modern influences.

Eclectic Kitchen Design
