New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique 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 resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that colour, incorporate natural components. According to 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 continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
