2019 Trends from the Kitchen and Bath Industry

The annual KBIS event highlights the most exciting trends each year in kitchen and bath design. 2019 design trends offer plenty of opportunities for homeowners to spread their creating wings and take some risks. From bright white to elegant black, and from wood on wood to pink frills, this year’s trends are likely to speak to the designer in everyone. Walker Zanger keeps a finger on the pulse of the design world, and our creative team immerses itself in the energy that brings life to a space, always leading the forefront for these trends. And we want to inspire you to make your space one that brings you nothing short of pure enjoyment. 

Sweeping Kitchen Trends

One of the easiest ways to express your essence in the kitchen is by playing with backsplash design. And tile backsplash for 2019 is even more unique than in years past. Reflecting the heart of the kitchen, the backsplash is truly a backdrop for the narrative of your family’s lives. And while attention-grabbing backsplash tile is a classic in beautifully-designed kitchens, lately, designers have choreographed a scene that takes tile from the countertop to ceiling, sweeping geometric and richly colored tiles behind floating shelves and flanking range hoods to create a feature wall that makes a bold statement.[1] Walker Zanger’s Decorative Stone Collections provide a beautiful and unique backdrop in styles from the David Bowie-inspired Stardust a la 1970s, to the Roman-inspired Byzantium, striking a balance between antique opulence and modern geometry.

Fresh Bath Trends

2019 tile trends aren’t just for kitchens; they are transforming bathroom design as well. And one classic, the Moroccan-patterned tile, has been a beloved option for the kitchen backsplash for many years. Now this fun and fancy option is showing up in large swaths as bathroom flooring.1 With the current love of clean whites and classic blacks, the sharply defined fresh feel of tile with dramatic color options is a stunning way for homeowners to innervate the bathroom with renewed enthusiasm. The dynamic but smart patterns dance across floors and liven a space, expressing an ebullient personality all their own. Walker Zanger’s Stone Mosaic Collection, available in several patterns and colors, offers a similar look, with geometric shapes in clean lines and botanical curves to freshen any modern bathroom area.
