New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. 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 a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say 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 components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in 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.
