New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state 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 subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable 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 does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
