New year, 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 planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes 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 cabinets are getting 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 choice in all white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
