Kitchen / June 18, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
The kitchen design outlook for 2018 has evolved from recent years in notable ways and offers a virtual basket of both mature and fresh design goodies for everyone. The vernacular of kitchen design in 2018 puts the spotlight on an elevated aesthetic, promotes well being, encourages food prep efficiencies and as a result, the kitchen becomes the room in the home where all five senses reside. It’s a magnet for physical and emotional nourishment.
Kitchens work the best with laminate, vinyl, and hardwood, and the choice of patterns and colors is just impressive. You can use flooring to replicate literally every style, from minimalist industrial kitchens to light-tile country French ones.
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.
