New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your colour 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 colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
