Although white cabinets are popular and create a clean and sleek design, adding a bit of color can add personality to your home. Many homeowners are choosing bold colors like navy blue, emerald green or ruby red to provide a unique look for their kitchen design. If you can’t commit to a daring color on the cabinets, think about adding a splash of color to the backsplash.
Open shelving and no upper cabinets will also be popular in 2019. When considering your kitchen décor, a minimalist feel can often make a small space seem larger.

If you are considering the no, or few, upper cabinet options – be sure to include a pantry or extra storage near the kitchen when planning your kitchen remodel.
