New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled 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 all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
