Kitchen / June 18, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
Kitchen flooring needs to satisfy many criteria – it has to be practical, comfortable, damage-proof, and ambiance-pleasant. But how is that possible. Of course, the first idea that will come to your mind will be to choose an impressive piece which looks up-to-date and stylish, and that’s where you are risking to make the ‘practicality mistake’. Before thinking of aesthetics, thinks of durability, and don’t do the mistake of saving.
Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and it has to be properly executed in order to allow the rest of the place to function in order. Beauty will eventually appear on the list of priorities, but what matters the most is function.
Neutral finishes (colors) for cabinetry historically reign supreme, but this year there’s a twist – actually more than one. The all-white kitchen in all its purity and impossible-to-keep-clean glory, is fading fast. Taking center stage in 2018 are very light and soft grays, semi-opaque cream finishes on wood and a surprising micro emerging trend – light khaki tones. Grays and warm grays in the medium to dark shades are even more widely seen in stylish kitchens than in previous years, often mixed with a soft white, an update to classic black and white. A micro trend of gold finishes on cabinet doors is new for 2018.
A trend toward wellness is more a concept than a specific look. Large windows, comfortable seating-perhaps a kitchen sofa or banquette, space for plants and herbs, high performance/easy care products such as engineered stone, room for art, design elements from nature, a large sink, purified water, ample traffic flow and a steam oven are some attributes of a kitchen designed for an overall feeling of wellness.
