New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just 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 bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody 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 that colour, 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 utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to 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 dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
