New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely 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 stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
