New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the 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 subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
