New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled 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 the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards 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 choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
