Kitchen / June 22, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
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.
Grid motifs are everywhere! Often seen in black, the contrast of a black grid in window muntins, glass cabinet doors, pantry doors, framework surrounding an island or designed into other cabinet sections such as legs, defines form. It’s also a nod to a lite industrial look.
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.
Kitchen sinks are big and getting bigger for good reason! The abundance of sink accessories allow quick and efficient meal preparation, an important component in a kitchen centered around wellness. Two faucets installed at a large sink, 45”+, means more than one person can use the sink at once and surrounding countertops can remain cleaner – an ideal situation for smaller kitchens. This trend deserves to have staying power. Stainless steel sinks are most prevalent, but the faucet finish to coordinate with the sink is up for grabs.
