New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're 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 gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, 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 this colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
