New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells 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 (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to want 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. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective 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 also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking another sort 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 a fun 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. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
