New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do 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 love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
