New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now 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 your color du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
