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 core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed 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 seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled 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 all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white modern kitchens is now a fun 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. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
