New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"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 character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states 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,"individuals 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." Sometimes they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. 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 fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
