Kitchen / June 26, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
When it comes to nerve-wracking kitchen design decisions, cabinetry has an undisputed leadership position. It will be challenging, it will be exhausting, and it will be extremely important. To make matters even scarier, cabinetry costs, and it is not such a recommended practice to choose random ones as they can affect reversely the entire appearance of the kitchen.
We’re still seeing natural wood elements in the kitchen and the floor is where this design statement is being made. Noted above, wood countertops are on the upswing, thick wood shelving and more textured door styles in clear or semi-opaque stains are beautiful design elements in 2018 kitchens. Backsplashes are generally quiet affairs, creating to a visual flow in the design. Seamless engineered stone with soft patterns are trending. Tile for the backsplash is either very small shapes or larger format sizes.
Modern design, the look for 2018 kitchens, are more masculine and moody in style due to the prevalence of warm and cool grays, matte finishes, quiet countertop colors, built in appliances, grid motifs and black elements. Design elements are both strong and simple. The industrial style, perhaps overly accessorized in recent years, has been significantly watered down to a much less trendy/identifiable look featuring accents rather than full-on industrial themes.
Living the final decision in your hands, we’d probably recommend you to go for a monochromatic kitchen-living room combo, and avoid sharp and striking wall divisions, or incompatible color schemes. At the end of the day, why would you plan a combo if you intend to divide it.
