New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving 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,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
