New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people 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." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend 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 includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
