New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few 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 know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's 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 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 that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective 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 carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior 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 relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
