New era, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different suggestions for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just want to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating 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 drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone seems to want light green cabinetry," states 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. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are ongoing the rock material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you may also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming warmer, 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 presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated 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 fridge, see what's inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
