New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears 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 color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with 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 ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One 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 features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
