Kitchen / June 13, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
A trend toward wellness is more a concept than a specific look. Large windows, comfortable seating-perhaps a kitchen sofa or banquette, space for plants and herbs, high performance/easy care products such as engineered stone, room for art, design elements from nature, a large sink, purified water, ample traffic flow and a steam oven are some attributes of a kitchen designed for an overall feeling of wellness.
Countertop trends for 2018 feature an old favorite, marble, especially seen in engineered stone. Marble patterns are so creatively designed in exaggerated blown-up patterns we saw last year and still love as well as a wide range of patterns that are almost coy – obviously faux but clearly marble-inspired. There is a noticeable turn away from the Calacattas and Carraras toward these (and natural) similar but different marble patterns. Wood countertops are trending in 2018 and nicely warm up the modern aesthetic. Engineered stone countertop colors (non marble) for 2018 are grays, mottled and soft concrete textures, leather finishes on the periphery and a bit of khaki colored stone on the horizon.
Kitchen flooring needs to satisfy many criteria – it has to be practical, comfortable, damage-proof, and ambiance-pleasant. But how is that possible. Of course, the first idea that will come to your mind will be to choose an impressive piece which looks up-to-date and stylish, and that’s where you are risking to make the ‘practicality mistake’. Before thinking of aesthetics, thinks of durability, and don’t do the mistake of saving.
To increase the sleek look of kitchens which is popular at the moment, more people are preferring cabinetry without handles. While the ability to open your cupboards without handles was previously used only for high placed cabinets, the same principle is now being applied to carpentry throughout the kitchen and people love the clean look it provides.
