A big kitchen trend for 2019 is to feature pastel tones. This could be painting walls, using tiles or going full on with pastel cabinets.

The calming feel of pastels will also inject some fun into you kitchen and this can be achieved simply by painting some walls. If you get bored with it, then it’s easy to change.

Create some interest on splashbacks and tiling with pastel tones like blue, green and pink. There are so many shades and patterns available on tiles now, so you can be sure to find something you love.

With more and more options with kitchen cabinets online and in store, now is the perfect opportunity to design everything yourself from style to colour. A pastel pink or blue cabinet will work really nicely with pale wood and white for a fresh clean look.

For a more subtle take on this trend then add some pastel appliances like a fridge or toaster. Who needs to stick to black or chrome!
