New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently 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 seems to want light green cabinetry," says 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 components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
