The Latest Kitchen Remodeling Trends

Houzz.com recently surveyed 2,600 individuals who completed a kitchen remodel in 2019 or planned to undertake one in the next three months.

Style Trends

A large majority of homeowners (85%) change the style of their kitchen when they renovate. In 2019, transitional was most popular, selected by 21% of homeowners, followed by contemporary (16%), modern (15%) and traditional style (11%). Transitional cabinets, fixtures, and other kitchen staples combine both traditional and contemporary styles. Transitional has been the most favored décor style for three years running, found the Houzz survey. Farmhouse kitchens are not as popular. Only 11% of homeowners opted for a farmhouse kitchen according to survey respondents. This was a decline from 14% in 2018 and 12% in 2017.

Cabinets are King

Cabinets are the number one choice for upgrading during a kitchen renovation. 94% of homeowners reported upgrading cabinets as part of their kitchen renovation with 68% opting to replace all cabinets.

White Remains Number One

White kitchen cabinets continue to reign atop of the color heap in kitchen renovations with 45% of homeowners selecting white cabinets for their new kitchens. Wood-tone cabinets were the second most popular cabinet option (22%) followed by gray as the third most popular color choice.

Shake, Shake, Shake, Shaker

More than six in 10 homeowners selected a Shaker-style door front for their new kitchens. The second most popular style was a flat panel at 21% followed by raised panel doors at 18%. A majority of those replacing their cabinets during their kitchen remodel selected custom cabinets (40%). Another 36% of homeowners opted for semi-custom cabinets with a much smaller percentage of homeowners selecting stock (12%) and even fewer choosing ready to assemble.

Specialty Storage Draws A Crowd

A well-designed kitchen is an organized kitchen and increasingly homeowners in the Houzz survey and our clients in Pittsburgh appreciate the benefits of drawer and cabinet organizers. Cookie sheet or tray organizers were most popular, selected by 50% of homeowners upgrading their cabinets. 63% of homeowners selected drawers with pull out waste and/or recycling drawers. Lazy Susans were also popular organizers picked by 40% of homeowners renovating their kitchens. Another 36% of remodelers featured pullout or swing-out drawers. Nearly half of homeowners that renovated their kitchen upgraded their pantry.
