8 Gorgeous Kitchen Trends That Will Be Huge in 2018
Darker Floors – If you choose a light paint for walls or cabinetry, select a dark floor stain to up the cozy factor of the room.
Think Beyond “Greige” – Gray undertones lend a timeless, totally livable vibe to most paint colors
Heavy Up the Metal – The open shelving trend isn’t going anywhere and in a kitchen void of upper cabinetry, the hood is inevitably the centerpiece
Design from the Ground Up – Rugs, however durable, aren’t practical for a heavy-use kitchen. Enter statement floor tile. It’s a more subtle way to add impact than, say, a bold eye-level splashback
Pecky Cypress Finishes – If you can’t get enough of the reclaimed-wood look, here are two words you’ll be hearing a lot: pecky cypress. Seen here on the hood and island, it’s a type of wood that has a grainy texture thanks to long, narrow burrows or cavities.
English Inspiration -Age-old, English inspiration, from decorative “spot cutouts” to painted wooden knobs
Embrace Black Appliances – Plain old stainless steel has its merits, but in a small kitchen, a giant swath of silvery metal can quickly dominate the room.
Now, Get Decorating!– The kitchen is the most utilitarian room in the house, which is why we obsess over the appliances, the splashback, the sink…but it’s also the heart of the home. Subtle touches such as slipcovers, decorative hardware, and prized collections serve up a little softness.
