New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need 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 elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
