New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
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 finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody seems to want 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 that colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally 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 carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
