New year, new kitchen trends. 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 household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even 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 your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says 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 components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even 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 fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
