2018 Kitchen Design Trends

Working with small spaces in a grand way

If you’re looking to freshen up your kitchen’s design, consider incorporating one of the top trends of 2018. Whether it’s adding color or using a design element that’s a slight break from tradition, there are great options to give your kitchen space a modern touch.

Concrete Countertops
A bold alternative to granite or quartz, concrete countertops create a unique aesthetic. Popping up on Pinterest boards and your favorite home renovation TV shows, concrete countertops give your kitchen an industrial feel without being cold. Consider this rustic touch if you want a countertop with more texture and tone than standard stone options.

Color Cabinets
White and stained wood cabinets are always in style, but color cabinetry is a popular option right now. Shades of blue and green are making a statement in all types of kitchens. If you’re hesitant to commit to full color cabinets, consider keeping upper cabinets a neutral white or gray and painting lower cabinets in a vibrant shade.

Black Finish Appliances
Go beyond traditional stainless and make a statement with black finish appliances. Stainless steel refrigerators, microwaves and stoves in matte black and slate shades are trendy, eye-catching and give your kitchen a modern edge. Plus, black stainless is easy to clean and doesn’t show smudges and fingerprints like silver stainless.

Open Shelving
Rather than hiding your dishes and glasses in a cabinet, put them on display with open shelving. A few open shelves on a kitchen wall will give the illusion of a larger space and create a focal point. This look works well with shelves in any color or material so it can be customized for your kitchen. Try lightly stained, knotted wood with cast iron brackets for a reclaimed look.

Tile Patterns
From herringbone subway tiles to Moroccan-style backsplashes, tile patterns add style and visual interest to your kitchen. Once you find a pattern you like, work with a skilled professional to create the look you want. The possibilities are endless and will give your kitchen a feel all its own. .
