Kitchen / June 11, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
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.
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.
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.
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.
