Whether you want to upgrade your décor, or you are looking to bring your tired color scheme back to life now is the time to create your dream kitchen. Kitchen designs for 2018 are coming in strong due to them bringing something completely different to the table. From material to color, to appeal and aesthetics the changes are bold. Here are the trends that are taking 2018 by storm.
Bold, vibrant color
Bold hues are here to stay this year, especially in the kitchen space. This year will focus on colorful appliances, pops of color and color clashes. This trend is all about adding personality to the area, the use of color in the kitchen is extremely important as different hue work differently in each setting. Brighter shades are best for an airy space and darker hues are best for entertaining.
Pretty pastels present a beautiful design advantage and are an excellent form of adding fun colors without the bold impact bright shades can create. This is perfect for those that want to add color to the kitchen without disrupting your décor. Use to add highlights, creating features, and add a soft “wow” factor.
Most kitchen islands are dictated due to the square footage of the kitchen. However, no matter the size you can still have a multitasking island. A multitasking island is a space you can use for cooking, as a breakfast bar, or as a hangout space for your guests. The options are endless.
Shelving is Back
Shelving used to be huge in the kitchen, but it has taken a step back for quite some time. However, shelving is back in a big way this year. They are an excellent way to maximize your space without taking much space footage. It provides maximum storage with little to no effort. Add them to multiple different levels for a unique touch.
Metallic handles are very IN this year. You no longer want the round smaller knobs, instead consider bar handles in shades of gold, rose gold and copper for that well-rounded look. You may even want to match your handles with your accessories for a trendy appeal.
People are becoming busier by the minute and many no longer have much time to do anything, which is where having multiple ovens will come in handy. Multiple ovens are perfect for creating a statement and a conversation piece. Don’t stop at a double oven, consider a double dishwasher, and/or a double sink.
The rise of the smart appliances is here. More and more appliances are adding cool features to them, including having apps that help keep reminders, shopping list and more. Having the luxury of a smart appliance is absolutely on trend.
Industrial kitchen décor is the ultimate decorative trend of the year. It’s edgy, its classic, yet it pairs well with multiple different trends. Add metallic pieces to bring that classic industrial feel and pair with darker hues to bring it all together.
Hues of Blue
Blue is the color of the year when it comes to kitchen décor. From cobalt blue to pastels the shade is coming in. Pair with metallics and bring it all together. The bold and dramatic hue brings it all together for any type of decorating style.
Gold is a beautiful metallic when paired with neutral hues, they work beautifully well together. Add organic texture for that classic, simple appeal that is still very much on trend.
