New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently 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 seems 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 this colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people 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 may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
