New year, 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 arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need 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 that color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable 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 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology 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 you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
