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 arranging a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We talked with a few of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeing--and installingthis season.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a character and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers say mint green is the color du jour. "Everyone appears to need light green cabinetry," says 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 components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with all 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 take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of pure stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun approach to subtly add contrast to wood cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub refrigerator, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
