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 heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," says 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 elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 trend 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 features 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 reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
