New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this year.
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 character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky 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 squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
