New year, new kitchen trends. 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 are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable approach 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 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
