New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody 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 components. According to 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 continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
