New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals 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." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend 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 touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
