New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states 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 elements. According to 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 tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, 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"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
