Kitchen Design: What’s #Trending in 2019


With each new year comes new trends. Scott Dresner and his team at Dresner Design are big fans of timeless design. Trends come and go, but sleek, white kitchens are forever.

There are a few design trends that Scott Dresner can get on board with. Here, we asked him to share his top 3 favorite kitchen design trends to watch out for in 2019.

Open Shelving
“When we traveled to Milan for EuroCucina 2018, we spotted a few design elements headed for an uptick in popularity, including ditching upper cabinets for kitchen bookcases and open shelving.” – Scott Dresner

Mixing Textures
“An easy way to add personality and interest to a space is by mixing textures like high gloss cabinets and natural wood. Another- mixing metals with stainless steel appliances and gold faucets or hardware. In our Hyde Park Kitchen, the eclectic nature of the furnishings really compliments the custom cabinetry. We like the juxtaposition of industrial and rustic elements we used for this client. The modern lines of the glass and stainless hood and the white laminate cabinetry are clean and minimal while the textural island and uppers above the sink create a rustic look. All in all- a unique look for this art-filled home.” – Scott Dresner

“Our favorite trend we’ve seen picking up speed is totally custom kitchens. At the 2018 EuroCucina, Stosa Cucine released a new kitchen for the new generation that allows you to customize your kitchen in as many ways as you want, and as often as you want with their new pegboard system. Fun, function, and flexibility. What more could you want?” – Scott Dresner
