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 suggestions for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone appears to want 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,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
