New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a few different ideas for the core of the household. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or only want to be inspired--you need to understand what designers are doing for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to hear what they're seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I love the swing toward daring 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 is using colour on cabinets, walls, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers state mint green is your colour du jour. Everybody seems to want 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 colour, incorporate natural elements. In accordance with 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." Occasionally they take the rock all the way to the ceiling, and you can also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers out of natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are getting warmer, some appliances are taking a different type of remarkable turn. "Matte black fittings and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a minimal and stark choice in all white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and more traditional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
As our devices get smarter, so, too, do our kitchens. One fashion designer Niki Papadopoulos does not see going anywhere is"technology effortlessly incorporated into appliances," she says. The ideal example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which includes a touch screen, interior cameras, and WiFi connectivity, which means you can search recipes from the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're shopping, and leave notes and reminders to relatives. Does not get much brighter than that.
