New year, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the core of the household. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to know what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one lucky client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is the color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says 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,"individuals are falling in love with the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using 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 can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in all white contemporary kitchens is presently an enjoyable approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so it is possible to search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
