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 suggestions for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears to want 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,"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 edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting 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 option in white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
