New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
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 gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may 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 contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more conventional, 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 seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
