New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody 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 that color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people 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." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
