New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems 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 this color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals 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 create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
