Experts are already discussing new kitchen trends and updates that will grace the pages of glossy magazines and interior designers’ Instagram accounts once we ring in the New Year. Whether you are looking to renovate your cooking space or simply refresh it, here are a few easy ways to modernize your kitchen for 2019:

Raw Materials

$24.85 available at Amazon SHOP IT

Ann Hepfer, of Bespoke Interiors, told Elle that raw materials like wood, stone, jute and shiplap would be popular in an effort to bring kitchens back to basics. Adding texture will create a simple, elegant statement in your kitchen. Get the look with this artisan black slate serving slab.

Moody Colors

$149.95 available at Williams-Sonoma SHOP IT

After Behr announced “Blueprint” as the 2019 Color of the Year, you can start to expect cozy, moody colors in the kitchen. Other earth tones, such as hunter green, are expected to pop up in kitchens around the country. Get in on the trend—but also invest in a piece you'll love for years to come—with this Le Creuset Cast-Iron Oven in teal. 

Digital Technology

$297.49 available at Amazon SHOP IT

Digital innovation continues to find its way into the kitchen, from revolutionary blenders to refrigerators with computer screens. As more of our lives become impacted by Wi-Fi, why shouldn’t our household appliances keep up, too? We love this iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity because it does all the dirty work for you. 

Matte Black

$279.95 available at Amazon SHOP IT

This may come as a shock to the white kitchen-obsessed, but matte black is taking over, from kitchen sinks to wall colors. This KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Qt. Stand Mixer would create some (welcome) drama on any countertop. 

Funky Appliances

$199.95 available at Williams-Sonoma SHOP IT

If moody colors and matte black aren’t your thing, bright and funky appliances are also in style for 2019. Vibrant hues and retro styles—like this drip coffee maker from Smeg—will be making statements in a kitchen near you.
