New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state 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. 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 rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
