New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone appears 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 elements. In accordance with 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 tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood 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 says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
