New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone 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 this 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 carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
