Kitchen / June 21, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
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.
Besides, breakfast nooks are incredibly cute, and many people decide to install them even before they’ve considered how they could use them. Once there, the breakfast nook will win your heart with warm coffees in the spring, or the long wine chitchats with your friends. We love them because of their function and their style, and the fact they can be installed in the most impossible and complicated corners.
When it comes to nerve-wracking kitchen design decisions, cabinetry has an undisputed leadership position. It will be challenging, it will be exhausting, and it will be extremely important. To make matters even scarier, cabinetry costs, and it is not such a recommended practice to choose random ones as they can affect reversely the entire appearance of the kitchen.
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.
