New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently 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"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
