New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge 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 need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated 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 from the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
