New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber 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"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
