Kitchen / May 16, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
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.
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.
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.
A trend that tops the list for 2018 is open shelving. This has been an up-and-coming trend for some time. If a homeowner does not want to deal with the expense of a new cabinet installation and wants to embrace the minimalism trends, open shelving is the solution. It makes the space look open and airy, which is what homeowners are looking for when it comes to their kitchens.
