New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeing--and installingthis year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that 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 using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. 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 in the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
