New era, new kitchen tendencies. 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 are planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely 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 subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes 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 cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
