Kitchen / June 7, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
Availability can be equally good as it can be bad, because only a 100% determined person can dive inside the ocean of available cabinetry options and pick his at ones. You’ll have to check heavily carved wooden doors, soft hinges, half- or fully expanded drawers, and thousands of shades. Remember when you thought time won’t be an issue.
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.
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.
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.
