New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says 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,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
