New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 your color du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," states 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. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach 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 does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
