New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
