New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, 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 this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend 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 from the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
