New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems 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 that color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into 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 remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white modern kitchens is now a fun approach 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. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
