New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems 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 this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to wood 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 doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
