New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears 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. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract 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 take the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
