New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone appears to want 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 components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
