New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking 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 modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
