Kitchen / May 4, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
Still, if you’ve considered a kitchen island in the first place, remember that you’ll also need to purchase the appropriate sitting, and that can get more daunting than choosing the island at times. You will have to measure the space, compare the style, consider the period, and so on.
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.
Try to apply the same principle with materials and accessories, because you’re purchasing pieces that have to satisfy the needs of two rooms (to be more precise, porcelain flooring makes perfect sense in the kitchen, but it will certainly obstruct the warm and welcoming scenario you intend to introduce in the kitchen. A good example of such material is natural stone, especially a finely cut one.
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.
