New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they are seeing--and installing--this season.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," states 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,"people are falling in love with 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 may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently an enjoyable way to subtly add comparison 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"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
