New year, new kitchen tendencies. 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 household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this cabinet 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," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
