New year, new kitchen tendencies. While minimalism and rose gold appliances were huge for 2018, the new year is bringing in a couple of unique suggestions for the heart of the household. If you are planning a kitchen reno--or only need to get inspired--you need to know what designers do for 2019. We spoke with some of our trusted resources to listen to what they are seeing--and installingthis year.
"I love the swing toward bold colored cabinetry instead of the anticipated white," designer Danielle Rollins informs House Beautiful. "It really provides a kitchen a personality and complete. "Denise McGaha agrees, stating she is using color on walls, cabinets, and even appliances (such as a plum-colored LaCanche range she is now installing for one lucky client). Need a push?

2. Minty Fresh
Even more specifically, designers say mint green is your 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 this color, incorporate natural components. In accordance with Los Angeles-based Natalie Meyers,"individuals are falling in love with all the subjective canvases painted by Mother Nature and using natural stone beyond countertops. Designers are continuing the stone material to waterfall tall and edges backsplashes." Sometimes they take the stone all the way to the ceiling, and you may also fabricate drawer fronts and hood vent covers from natural stone.
4. Matte Black Everything
Meanwhile, as cabinets are becoming bolder, some appliances are carrying a different type of dramatic turn. "Matte black fixtures and hardware are increasing in popularity," Meyers says. "What was a stark choice in white contemporary kitchens is presently a fun way to subtly add comparison to wood cabinets and more conventional, Shaker-style kitchens"
5. High Tech
One trend designer Niki Papadopoulos does not 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 fridge, see what is inside as you are searching, and leave reminders and notes to family members. Doesn't get much brighter than that.
