New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? 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 need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
