New year, new kitchen tendencies. 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 household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled 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 abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
