New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now 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 the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
