New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and 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"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
