If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only want to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this year.

"Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now 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 elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
