Kitchen / June 21, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
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.
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.
Availability can be equally good as it can be bad, because only a 100% determined person can dive inside the ocean of available cabinetry options and pick his at ones. You’ll have to check heavily carved wooden doors, soft hinges, half- or fully expanded drawers, and thousands of shades. Remember when you thought time won’t be an issue.
