New year, 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 heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled 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 the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and 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"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
