New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different suggestions for the core of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still piled in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable way 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 trend 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 includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
