New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
