New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're planning 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're seeing--and installingthis season.
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 provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
