New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous 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 just need to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives 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 now installing for one blessed client). Need a push? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more traditional, 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"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside 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 smarter than that.
