New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like 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 your color du jour. Everybody 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. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to 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 becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion 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, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
