New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this 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 provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using colour on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the colour du jour. Everybody 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 colour, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are taking a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what is inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much brighter than that.
