New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems 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 that color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to 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 brighter than that.
