New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? How's this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people 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 edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
