What's hot in the world of kitchen design for 2019?
From House Beautiful
While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for your kitchen. If you're planning a kitchen reno—or just want to make sure you're staying on top of what's trendy—you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with Los Angeles-based interior designer, Natalie Meyers, to get you the deets on what's about to become all the rage.
Get a little rustic in the new year and consider incorporating more stone. According to Meyers, "people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
2. Mixed in Beadboard Accents
Considering adding beadboard accents on drawer fronts, hood vent surrounds, or island fronts. They are an "eye-catching way to add subtle texture to a kitchen," Meyers says.
3. Matte Black
"Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional Shaker style kitchens."
