New era, 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 home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to understand 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.
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality 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 currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody seems to want 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 that colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
