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 home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this 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 rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
