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 core of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears 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 this colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all 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 carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
