New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. According to 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 ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, 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 states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
