Design Trends to Stay Away From in 2019

Lilly Pulitzer was famously quoted as saying “being happy never goes out of style.” We agree and our designers and clients are happy with their new remodeling projects by staying away from these design trends in 2019:

Cherry Wood: Both common and traditional, designers are moving away from the once popular cherry wood when selecting cabinets and finishes.


Subway Tile: Many new kitchen and bathrooms over the past decade have utilized subway tile, but over saturation has many designers seeing this classic tile as tired instead of timeless.


Pot Racks: Many of our clients would rather store pots and pans in deep cabinetry to avoid having their cookware collect dust overhead. Furthermore, a de-cluttered and organized kitchen doesn’t benefit from your pan collection being mounted to the ceiling.


Barn Doors: Similar to subway tile, barn doors have increased in popularity over the past few years. We appreciate the “upcycling” effort but not every space needs a big, bulky wooden door.


Brown Granite: Clients and designers alike are moving away from brown granite and stone countertops, moving towards more cleaner-looking finishes.
