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 are arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--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 really provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving 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,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock 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 taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside while you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
