New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with 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 to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much 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"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
