New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color 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 color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is now an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more traditional, 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"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
