New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few 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 tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract 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 into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
