New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone 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 this color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards 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 once a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way 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 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
