New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive? What is this cabinet by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the colour 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 that colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
