Kitchen trends are constantly shifting and evolving—remember when all-white kitchens were a thing?—and predictions for 2019 kitchen trends (and all kinds of big design trends of 2019) are already rolling in.

Real Simple spoke with Minnesota-based design expert Kate Arends, the founder of design site Wit & Delight and a member of the Delta Design Trust, about what finishes, paint colors, and styles will be taking over kitchens around the country in 2019. Arends predicts overall looks will start to move toward the classic and traditional, but with a modern twist—and with elevated details that keep cookspaces feeling fresh.
