New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique ideas for the heart of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
"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 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 specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody appears to want light green cabinetry," states 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,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective 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 take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside while you are searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
