New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals 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 edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
