Kitchen / June 16, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
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.
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.
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.
