New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of different ideas for the heart of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying 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 push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. "Everyone 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 components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, some appliances are taking a different type 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 way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
