Kitchen / June 23, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
We’re still seeing natural wood elements in the kitchen and the floor is where this design statement is being made. Noted above, wood countertops are on the upswing, thick wood shelving and more textured door styles in clear or semi-opaque stains are beautiful design elements in 2018 kitchens. Backsplashes are generally quiet affairs, creating to a visual flow in the design. Seamless engineered stone with soft patterns are trending. Tile for the backsplash is either very small shapes or larger format sizes.
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.
Kitchen flooring needs to satisfy many criteria – it has to be practical, comfortable, damage-proof, and ambiance-pleasant. But how is that possible. Of course, the first idea that will come to your mind will be to choose an impressive piece which looks up-to-date and stylish, and that’s where you are risking to make the ‘practicality mistake’. Before thinking of aesthetics, thinks of durability, and don’t do the mistake of saving.
