Kitchen / June 7, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
In general, kitchen design in 2018 is all about modern design with several variations on the theme. Little by little each year, function and aesthetics are equal players at the start of the design process. This means that art, collections and the visual aesthetic plays a more important part than ever.
Minimalism loves maximalism, translated, is a peripheral trend toward a clean, simple design framework which features a single, bold focal point of colorful florals or other bright patterns or colors. It’s a pleasant antidote to straight lines and introduces color, warmth and visual emotion in a surprising yet modern design statement – a backlash from recent years of minimalism in our interiors.
The modern farmhouse style takes the place of the basic Shaker kitchen we’ve seen since (precise date: 2004) and is a super fresh look! Open shelving in contrasting colors, lighter finishes in quartersawn oak cabinetry or painted cabinetry in soft whites, reclaimed-like wood elements with clean lines and a pleasing less-is-more approach. An inset door construction with slab door and drawer fronts in quartersawn oak is ideal for a modern farmhouse look.
