New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating 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? How's this pantry by Jim Dove for inspiration?
2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing 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 create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach 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 doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
