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 household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract 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 to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior 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 relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
