New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently 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. Everybody seems to need 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. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach 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"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
