Just as surely as the date on the calendar will change in the new year, kitchen design trends will offer exciting new surprises to keep the heart of the home stylish and fresh in 2018. Some trends are already in evidence.
Color, convenience and customization are the watchwords, according to designers. But personalization is key. Here’s our take on important new ideas that will influence kitchen design in the coming year.
Darker Colors, including black, are likely to surge to the top of the list. It’s been on the horizon, but the new look is toward darker and sleeker, a moody palette and less shine. That doesn’t in any way point to gloomy, though. Contrast is important, and accents like small appliances and kitchen towels can be as colorful as you like! A salt and pepper palette is perfect for the “with it” kitchen.
Actually, the Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. So says Pantone Color Institute, the leading voice in color for everything from lipstick to new vehicles for nearly two decades. We’re already seeing the provocative, enigmatic saturated tone splashed on everything from backsplash tile to slow cookers and stand mixers. It’s energizing but calming at the same time, and we’ll be seeing the color everywhere in the coming year.
Kitchen individuality has always been important; this year it’s vital. Blackened zinc ventilation hoods, fireclay sinks and tiles, black and white tile flooring. It’s a decor direction that’s as classic as ancient history and as new as you can imagine. Character and personalization affect everything from cabinets to flooring to lighting fixtures. It’s all about individuality in 2018.
