New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to want 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 this colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry 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 becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
