Kitchen / April 23, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
Black is back as both a leading (all cabinets) and supporting (just accents) player – the latter, much more common for 2018. Playing with contrasting interior and exterior cabinet finishes add a fashionable touch. Painted cabinet colors are in the range of soft medium blues but bold blues and khakis are on trend as well for 2018. Matte black stainless appliances.
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.
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.
