New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to want 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 colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing 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 also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
