New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears 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 that color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing 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 out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking another sort 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 now a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much 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 effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
