New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems to want 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. In accordance with 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 ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, 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 says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
