New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective 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 carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add contrast 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 doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
