New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone seems 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 that colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
