New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone 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 color, 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 utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
