Woods require attentive maintenance in general, and you need to cherish their beauty from the very first moment you’ve purchased them. For instance, consult the carpenter to recommend the best cleaning and polishing products, or read more about it.
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.
A trend that tops the list for 2018 is open shelving. This has been an up-and-coming trend for some time. If a homeowner does not want to deal with the expense of a new cabinet installation and wants to embrace the minimalism trends, open shelving is the solution. It makes the space look open and airy, which is what homeowners are looking for when it comes to their kitchens.
Functional doesn’t only refer to space and durability, but encompasses a number of simple tricks you can apply to take proper care of your kitchen. Whereas the regular cleaning schedule remains in place, consider using light wood for the floors and the cabinets, as it hides dust and wear better than any similar material.
