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 heart of the home. If you're planning a kitchen reno--or just need to be inspired--you will need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with a few of our trusted sources to listen to what they are seeinginstalling and -- this season.
"I really like the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins tells House Beautiful. "It actually provides a kitchen a personality and finish. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she's using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she's currently installing for one blessed client). Need a drive?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more especially, designers state mint green is your color du jour. Everybody seems to need light green cabinetry," says Jennifer Beek Hunter, proving this kitchen by Young Huh from 2012 is still squarely in style.
3. Natural Stone
To balance out all this color, incorporate natural elements. According to Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the abstract canvases painted by Mother Nature and utilizing natural rock beyond countertops. Designers are continuing 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 becoming warmer, some appliances are carrying another sort of remarkable turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are growing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was once a stark option in white contemporary kitchens is now a fun way to subtly add contrast to timber cabinets and much more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens."
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos doesn't see going anywhere is"tech seamlessly integrated into appliances," she says. The perfect example? Samsung's Family Hub fridge, which features a touch screen, inside cameras, and WiFi connectivity, so you can search recipes in the refrigerator, see what's inside while you're searching, and leave reminders and notes to relatives. Does not get much smarter than that.
