New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love 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, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears to want 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 that color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
