New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"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 character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need 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 this color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to 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 brighter than that.
