Although when designing the interior of your home, you don’t have to follow the latest trends blindly, it is important to keep your kitchen updated and functional. This is especially true if you are considering selling your home any time soon. And when building a new house, it is important to incorporate the latest trends in kitchen designs to improve both the productivity and convenience of your kitchen area.
While many home design consultants can help you choose features and materials that are specific to your tastes, they will also recommend following along with some of the latest trends will ensure that your kitchen stays modern looking and fresh longer.
Here are Four Kitchen Design Ideas for 2018:
- Bold colours: Neutral colours in the kitchen are still prevalent, but there’s a larger emphasis on bolder colour choices. If you have used neutral colours for too long, it is a good idea to experiment with using bold colours for the countertops, backsplash and other focal points of your kitchen. Lower cabinets can be highlighted with complementary shades to bring this look together making it more appealing to the eye.
- Streamlined designs: Homeowners often prefer streamlined designs and aesthetics. The kitchen is a busy area of the house, and it is important to make it as stress-free of an environment as possible. Complex kitchen designs could hamper workflow and reduce productivity, as more time and effort will be needed to complete each task.
Some non-essential aspects of your kitchen can be removed to make the area brighter and more spacious. The focus should be on using the countertops and stove more productively. It is important to know that by being streamlined, it doesn’t mean that your kitchen has to be boring. The kitchen can be livened up with quality materials and elegant textures and, for more industrial accents, metallics can be incorporated into the kitchen design.
- Quartz countertops: This is a continuation of the trend in 2017. Quartz countertops still reign supreme in high-end kitchen designs because quartz is a durable material that can last forever. It’s also anti-microbial and easy to maintain, and it is a good alternative to granite for elegant high-end kitchen designs.
- Composite sinks: composed of quartz dust and acrylic resins, composite sinks are close cousins to stone and granite sinks. You’ll find both pros and cons for including a composite granite sink in your kitchen’s design. But composite sinks will create an elegant and uniform look and maintenance, and cleaning tasks will be much easier to perform as well.
These are just some of the kitchen design trends you can create for your home to add beauty and value while creating a more functional space.
