New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
