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 ideas for the heart of the household. If you're arranging a kitchen reno--or just want to get inspired--you will need to understand what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeing--and installing--this year.
"I really like the swing toward daring colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually gives a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (like a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently 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 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 elements. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall edges and tall backsplashes." Occasionally they carry the stone all the way into the ceiling, and you can even create drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white modern kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. 1 fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Doesn't get much smarter than that.
