New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect 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 is inside as you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
