New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone appears to want light green cabinetry," states 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. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with 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 to the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
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 touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
