New era, 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 heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's 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 state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears 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 this color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, 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 seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
