New era, new kitchen trends. While minimalism and increased gold appliances were enormous for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the heart of the home. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or just need to get inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- --this season.
1. White Cabinets Are Over
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry rather than the expected white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a character and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, saying she's using color on walls, cabinets, 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. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, demonstrating 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 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 can also create drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a minimal and stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun approach to subtly add comparison to timber cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
1 trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touchscreen display, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means it is possible to 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.
