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 core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push? How's this cabinet 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 piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural elements. 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 tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
