New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased 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 arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 state mint green is your colour 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 colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
