New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with 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." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, 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 stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. 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're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
