The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) has released its 2019 report on trends in kitchen design. The report coincided with its annual Kitchen and Bathroom Industry Show (KBIS), celebrating the best trends in kitchen and bathroom design.
The report and the show reveal the most popular styles and features. They also provide indicators of the trend for the next three years. This includes information gathered from professional designers, resellers, specialists, manufacturers, renovators, general contractors and architects.
Freshome asked Elle H-Millard, a certified kitchen designer and industry relations manager at NKBA, for photos of the designers and ideas on the major trends in American kitchen design.

“Transitional kitchens dominated kitchen design and 65% of those surveyed said they were the most preferred kitchen style,” says H-Millard. “This makes them more than twice as popular as traditional, contemporary or farmhouse cooking styles.” She hopes that transition kitchens will remain popular for a while.
H-Millard explained that in terms of the size of the islands, the medium and large islands were tied for first place. “Small and very small islands are not popular, and having no island at all does not seem to be an option, garnering only 2% of the vote.” second choice, U-shaped layouts.
