New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
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 gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating 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? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems 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 this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood 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"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
