New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
