Kitchen Remodeling Trends: Inspiration Meets Innovation

As the calendar flips, new trends emerge on the scene. This year is no exception. Design wish lists from trade professionals and homeowners alike have no shortage of desirable additions to make a bold, yet personalized, statement.

As home remodeling ideas begin to percolate, especially for kitchen and bathroom projects, explore some of the must-haves for 2018.

Kitchens have evolved into a multi-functional room—a meal preparation station, a place to dine, an entertainment space—and the need for storage for everything required. Achieve your desired purpose and design with this year’s highly coveted features.

New Metal Finishes

From cabinet hardware to faucets, popular choices are leaning toward matte black, such as the Nouveau II knob from Top Knobs, or theModern & Clean knob from Atlas.

Gaining momentum as well is a brushed gold tone, like the Sea Grass knob from Amerock.

Also on the upward trend path is mixing metals, from cabinet hardware to faucets to lighting. While the finishes may seem to contrast, it creates a complementary look.

Tailored Shiplap

What was out (or outside) is now in… and inside. Shiplap typically lived on the outside before moving indoors as a design component.

Lately, it has become a desired option beyond walls, moving to other locales such as kitchen islands and range hoods.

Quartz Countertops

The benefits of quarts make it a top choice in 2018. It’s durable, resists stains, is highly hygienic, and provides multiple looks that mimic real stone.

Silestone offers several tantalizing options such as the Basiq Series or Nebula Series.

This trend is not likely to fade anytime soon, meaning it will last as long as the counters do.

Dimensional Finish

With cabinetry, there’s a growing interest in showcasing dimensional movement and dramatic texture.

This look is represented by Marquis from Decoráand Croydon from Omega.

As mid-century modern and contemporary designs make a push in 2018, having cleaner lines and a minimalist appearance is key.
