New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the heart of the home. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using colour on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is the colour du jour. "Everyone seems to need 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 that colour, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using 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 even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
