2018 Kitchen Trends

As homeowners know, trends change on a yearly basis. This often makes it difficult to choose the best options for your kitchen, whether you just moved into your new home or you are preparing your home for sale. It can be difficult to keep up with all of trends, so our stagers put together this list of their favorite kitchen trends for 2018:

Black Appliances
Black appliances is becoming the “new white” for those who are prepared to push design boundaries. In the past, designers often preferred to hide appliances from sight. This year, they are making them a feature statement in the kitchen. Modern appliances are made to highlight their beauty, not only their functionality.

Golden Accents
Rose gold, brass, and copper finishes are back and here to stay on hardware, appliances and accessories. Warm finishes bring a homey luxury and mix well with many cabinet colors. Also good to know, mixing metals in the kitchen is also on trend, so there is no need to replace all your metal finishes to be on trend.

Composite Sinks
The porcelain and stainless steel sinks that we have seen for years will make way for alternative materials like stone, copper, and concrete. The newest idea may be the composite sink, made of the same material as the countertop (such as composite quartz or granite), which creates a seamless look and simplifies cleaning and maintenance.

Open Shelving
Swapping out upper cabinets for open shelving is growing in popularity. They work well in small and large kitchens. They make a small kitchen feel larger and to make a decorative statement in larger kitchens.

Patterned Floor Tiles
Wood floors are great in kitchens, but if you are looking for the perfect blend personality and durability, use patterned floor tiles. For maximum impact, pair patterned floor tiles with a plain backsplash.

Wood Contertops
Wood kitchen counters are another popular trend this year. Wood creates old-world charm and a less utilitarian aesthetic. Wood counters feel like furniture, which visually enhances the kitchen making it feel like more than just a place to cook.
