Top Kitchen Trends for 2018

We love the start of a new year, because that means it's time to reflect on the previous year and refresh ourselves for the year ahead. This includes everything from our wardrobes, to our personal routine, and even our design choices at home! As we look around for inspiration in the new year, let's take a look at the upcoming top kitchen trends for 2018. 

Bold Hues

White kitchens will always be in style and are a timeless look that can range from modern to traditional and ensure a great resale value, but you can expect new kitchen designs to start showing bold colors and multiple complementary color selections within the space. Bolder cabinet and paint colors are expected to make a splash, but still be anchored by neutral countertops and floors. 

High Contrast

We saw a lot of "tone on tone" in 2017 and while soft tones will always pair well layered on darker tones, we are going to see much more high contrast kitchens in 2018. If bold colors aren't for you, then you can still achieve a bold, high-contrast kitchen using black and white or one saturated color with white as the anchor. 

Tile Backsplash

We are thrilled to see that tile backsplashes will be ramping up in 2018! Check out our post about choosing the right kitchen backsplash and think about what feeling you want to achieve in your kitchen. We especially love glass tiles as a complement to stone countertops to add more detail and texture to the overall design of a kitchen. 

Natural Stone

Our Imagine Surfaces inventory is full of natural stone and eco-friendly selections that can create the perfect backdrop for your redesign. From marble to soapstone to Vetrazzo, we love helping our clients choose a surface that reflects their personality and fits their budget and design concept. We are excited to see that natural stone will be at the top of the kitchen design list this year. You can't go wrong with a classic stone choice to anchor the busiest space in your home- the kitchen!
