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 heart of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
