New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating 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 drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets 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 stark option 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
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
