New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving 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 stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards 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 choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
