New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeinginstalling and -- --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 personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people 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 tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
