New era, new kitchen tendencies. 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 are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this 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 character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as 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 state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," states Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all that color, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the stone all the way into 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 a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech 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 it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
