New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
