New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the core of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's 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 appears to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals 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 edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may 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 taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion 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, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
