The kitchen is the heart of each home. It is the place where families spend most of their time together. In early 2018, we can predict some completely new kitchen trends. Home designs introduce you to some of those trends that will appear this year.
This year, just like the year before, the matte black trend is popular. Matte finishes are recommended, regardless of whether we are talking about larger or smaller appliances.
Typical chrome, bronze or stainless steel finishes are replaced by smooth matte black finishes. Obviously, we can see the number of matt black refrigerators, dishwashers and ovens increasing. Black is becoming the new target for those who are ready to push the limits. You don’t have to be pretentious with all this blackness if you don’t want to lose the natural look of matte finishes.
In the past, designers have used their skills to hide appliances from view. Now we make them a feature statement in the kitchen. Today, modern appliances are made to highlight their beauty, not their functionality.
Kitchen flooring trends for 2018 have diverged; from handmade carpets and rugs, concrete or marble floors to graphic tiles. If the rug is a handmade creation with carefully colored threads and unique patterns, it becomes a work of art. Concrete is still popular, especially with underfoot heating. The natural cork is back, which is nice because it captures a softer finish. Marmoleum is also proving popular. It requires regular maintenance and care to make it look beautiful.
When it comes to graphic floor tiles, home layouts have one important tip for you: keep the surrounding scheme light and neutral so that your tiles are the center of attention, or take a color out of your tiles to bring it into your cabinets.
In general, in kitchens, designers always advocate for the natural look regardless of whether we use darker or lighter shades. Last year, gray and black were the favorite colors among designers. The outlook is for the trend to continue during 2018.
You can combine matte black cabinets with warm metal sinks and brass, copper or gold metal faucets. Keep your palette simple if you don’t want a mess in your kitchen.
Personalization and personalization
Now more than ever your kitchen can feel personal and unique. With the rise of custom-made furniture and custom appliances, the kitchen concept is being taken to the next level. You can create a design that works best for you and your lifestyle. Also, remember to consider your type of cooking, as this has a huge impact on the design. For example, if you love to cook, invest in quality appliances to make this everyday experience more enjoyable.
