New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
