New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the core of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of 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 colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed 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 piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
