New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
"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 personality 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 state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," says 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 components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
