New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural components. According to 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 edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, 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 choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way 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 effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
