New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
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 finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states 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 components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective 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 also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
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 fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
