New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love 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 colour 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 the colour 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 that colour, incorporate natural components. 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 tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying 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 all white contemporary kitchens is now 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"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
