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 suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? What is 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," says 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 components. 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." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
