New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of 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 color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the color du jour. Everybody 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 color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
