New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled 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 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 take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
