New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? 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 appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely 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 the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
