New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few unique ideas for the core of the home. If you are arranging a kitchen reno--or only 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 seeinginstalling and -- --this year.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really gives a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on cabinets, walls, as well as appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your color du jour. Everybody appears to need 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 that color, incorporate natural components. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"people are falling in love with the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the rock material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they carry the rock all the way into the ceiling, and you may even fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cupboards are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark choice in white modern kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and much more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she states. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes from the fridge, see what is inside as you are shopping, and leave notes and reminders to family members. Does not get much smarter than that.
