New era, 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 core of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you 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 year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? 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," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
