New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to want 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 colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they take the rock 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 cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern 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 doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. 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 searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
