New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's 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 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 elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't 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 in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
