New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating 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,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all 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 does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
