New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says 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,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate 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 choice in all white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
