Kitchen / June 15, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
Hardware on cabinetry is all about the mix – handleless cabinetry combined with oversized pulls in matte finishes combined with knobs on featured pieces. Dark metals will be most prevalent in 2018, piggy-backing on the light/dark contrast theme. Gold and warm toned finishes on faucets, cabinet doors and other design elements, are not going away anytime soon. They look great with all the moody grays and provide a strong visual accent in the kitchen. Interestingly, there is an upswing on gold accents on covers of burners on gas cooktops and ranges for a stylish touch which ties into other gold accents on the appliance! Mixed metal finishes continue to be strong for this year’s kitchens.
Although the trend towards neutral colours in the kitchen has been going for some time, it’s not looking like the popularity of grey or white palettes as the main colour in kitchens is going away. A predominantly neutral colour scheme means that your kitchen doesn’t clash with the rest of the house and blends in nicely with the surroundings. It’s also a timeless choice so you’re less likely to need to update in the near future.
Trends change day by day, and it may happen that there will be an amazingly practical and new material right after you purchased your cabinets. The same changes may happen with the production technologies and the features.
Once in place, they will dictate the feel and looks of your cooking haven, and there will be little to do to compensate their functionality if you mess up with them. More often than rare, cabinetry prices are not connected to the looks, and won’t be such a decisive criterion for you to decide whether your kitchen needs it.
