New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to want 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 components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
