Kitchen / June 13, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
Modern design, the look for 2018 kitchens, are more masculine and moody in style due to the prevalence of warm and cool grays, matte finishes, quiet countertop colors, built in appliances, grid motifs and black elements. Design elements are both strong and simple. The industrial style, perhaps overly accessorized in recent years, has been significantly watered down to a much less trendy/identifiable look featuring accents rather than full-on industrial themes.
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.
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.
Minimalism loves maximalism, translated, is a peripheral trend toward a clean, simple design framework which features a single, bold focal point of colorful florals or other bright patterns or colors. It’s a pleasant antidote to straight lines and introduces color, warmth and visual emotion in a surprising yet modern design statement – a backlash from recent years of minimalism in our interiors.
