Kitchen / June 27, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
As a surprise to many, darker kitchen paint colors will be popping up across the country. Charcoal, navy blue and forest green are all hot colors to have. This matches with this year’s bathroom trends as well, as navy blue with be the popular color to have.
Try to apply the same principle with materials and accessories, because you’re purchasing pieces that have to satisfy the needs of two rooms (to be more precise, porcelain flooring makes perfect sense in the kitchen, but it will certainly obstruct the warm and welcoming scenario you intend to introduce in the kitchen. A good example of such material is natural stone, especially a finely cut one.
The kitchen design outlook for 2018 has evolved from recent years in notable ways and offers a virtual basket of both mature and fresh design goodies for everyone. The vernacular of kitchen design in 2018 puts the spotlight on an elevated aesthetic, promotes well being, encourages food prep efficiencies and as a result, the kitchen becomes the room in the home where all five senses reside. It’s a magnet for physical and emotional nourishment.
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.
