New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is 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 want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that 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 utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
