New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all 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." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in 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
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
