New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous 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 want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states 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 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 tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone 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 cupboards 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 an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect 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's inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
