New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with 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 ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to 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.
