New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody 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 color, 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 stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
