New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring 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, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely 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 subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing 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 also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to timber 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 states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
