New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are 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 really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "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? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody 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 this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend 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 touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
