New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with 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 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 warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
