New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody seems to need 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,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
