New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
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 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 blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color 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 color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
