Stunning Kitchen Trends for 2018
Don’t be afraid to follow one of the trends and have the trendiest kitchen in your neighborhood. Look for one of our upcoming blogs on hiring the right contractors to get the kitchen of your dreams.
The island is at the epicenter of your kitchen and your life – frequently used for dinner, homework and social gatherings. A statement island will draw attention to its unique features, showcase your personal style, and stand out from the rest of the homes on your block. Consider a contrasting finish for your island.
Blue is an unexpected, but luxurious and beautiful finish trending. Adding reclaimed wood gives any kitchen a rustic look creating a cozy and warm atmosphere.
Bench seating as an extension of the island enhances your kitchen’s look and maximizes the usable area. It’s a unique way to allow dining areas to be a focal design piece in your home. They are an excellent way to create a custom design for your house that stands to increase its value in the long run.
Counter Top Materials
For clean and sleek countertops, quartz is far exceeding granite now as the most popular material among homeowners because of its resistance to scrapes and scratches.
Home Perfect Design planned to make a statement when selecting the finishes for this homeowner in Wesley Chapel by incorporating a standout island in white washed walnut finish to contrast the peninsula in a painted lacquered linen color. Countertops are quartz in Cambria quartz Bellingham and the backsplash is a 3X6 glass subway tile in pewter.
Integrating appliances with clever paneling and built-ins
The minimalism trend carries into the kitchen by integrating appliances with the cabinets for a seamless look.
With clever paneling and built-ins, you can keep the bulky refrigerator out of site as it blends in beautifully.
Show off your best dishware and art with open shelving. By eliminating closed-off cabinets, you can create a comfortable and airy feel in your kitchen. Very, “Joanna Gaines” or “farmhouse chic,” as I like to say.
Consider any of these kitchen trends to reflect your own personal style, increase your home’s value and enhance visual interest in your kitchen.
