New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your 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 all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using 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 also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to timber 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 does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
