New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour 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 specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody seems 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 the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock 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 getting warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
