New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears to want 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 this color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
