New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're 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 tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone appears to need 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 colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
