New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside while you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
