New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One 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 touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
