New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the heart of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely 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 subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way into 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 becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
