We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody appears to need 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 this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing 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 much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
