This is the One Kitchen Trend Chelsea DeBoer Stays Away From
The Down Home Fab co-host reveals her favorite ways to add color to a neutral kitchen design, and her tips are super easy.
When it comes to kitchens, her bold, edgy-meets-glam style is no different. In a recent interview, Chelsea told HGTV there's one design trend she's not the biggest fan of: an all-white kitchen.
Where other designers go neutral, Chelsea layers her spaces with cool personality, natural elements and sleek features. Just check out her chic designs from Season 1 (black granite waterfall islands and all).
“I like a white kitchen, but I try to do something different because everyone does white kitchens,” says Chelsea. “We went into our season and said, ‘We’re not going to do any white kitchens.’ I think we did one, but I wanted to think outside the box" — which is exactly what she and her husband, co-host Cole DeBoer, do. The duo revamps clients’ homes with an elevated, boho-sleek ambiance.
How to Give Your Kitchen the Chelsea Touch
For kitchens that are already all-white, Chelsea suggests a few small upgrades: “Incorporate some hardware that’s going to pop, bring in lots of greenery or some fun bar stools if you have an island,” she says.

As for her favorite recent design trend: “What I've been obsessed with ... is checkerboard tile flooring. It looks very elegant,” she says. “I wish we had that somewhere in our house.”
