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 home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this year.

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements.

Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
