New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating 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 the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
