Pick the most appropriate flooring for both rooms. In case you still need to choose a couple, try to combine styles and textures the best way you can. In open floors kitchen-living room combos, even the slightest mistake can affect the harmony, and make the place look misbalanced.
The modern farmhouse style takes the place of the basic Shaker kitchen we’ve seen since (precise date: 2004) and is a super fresh look! Open shelving in contrasting colors, lighter finishes in quartersawn oak cabinetry or painted cabinetry in soft whites, reclaimed-like wood elements with clean lines and a pleasing less-is-more approach. An inset door construction with slab door and drawer fronts in quartersawn oak is ideal for a modern farmhouse look.
Traditional and long breakfasts in the dining rooms are far behind us, as we all run around a tight schedule, and hardly have the time to grab a snack bite before we go out. That’s where breakfast nooks become the handiest – they can either help you skip the dish mess and keep food in the kitchen, or be long enough to be used even for lunches and dinners.
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.
