New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose 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 need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources 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 anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need 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 colour, 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 stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone 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 cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
