4 Kitchen Design Trends That Promise To Be Hot In 2018

The kitchen of 2018 has a much different role than it did decades ago when it was just a space for preparing meals and sitting down to eat. Today, the kitchen is the epicenter of the home, a hub of activity that's as much about congregating and entertaining as it is about fixing dinner. Needless to say, kitchen design has evolved tremendously to accommodate the changing needs and wants of modern families. Here's a look at what's trending in kitchen design in the coming year.

Countertops are Going to the Dark Side

Light colored kitchen countertops (especially white marble) have been a top go-to for a couple of years now. And while light countertops are not “out” by a long shot, the interest in dark, dramatic black stones has been on the rise. Look forward to seeing countertops as well as other surfaces, in varying shades of black in the coming year.

Brass is Back

Brass started making a notable reappearance in a few years ago, and by 2016, it was back in full force. This passion for brass is expected to continue in 2018. Mind you, this is not the brass of the 1980s; we're talking real, quality brass used in fixtures, hardware, and even seating.  With copper winding down its trend-setting reign, brass is poised to be the leader at the "finish" line (pun intended!) in 2018 as it truly injects a dose of warmth and shine like no other material can.

Mix & Match

Monochromatic kitchens have gone by the wayside while the trend toward mixing and matching color becomes the norm this year. Two tone cabinets can breathe unique life into a more traditionally styled kitchen. Try dark or colorful base cabinets with cream or white upper, or mix stainless with wood or even white washed with black lacquered. 

Get Smart

Technology integrated kitchens are one of the biggest trends going into 2018. You can have a kitchen with technology integrated into nearly every function and appliance–from the faucets to the fridge to the lighting. Smart kitchens are an evolving aspect of interior design, and we can look forward to even newer and better technologies as the year unfolds.
