Now that spring is just around the corner many of you may be thinking about spring cleaning, de-cluttering or redecorating your home to give it a feeling of freshness to see out the cold weather.
Those of you whose homes are in more serious need of some TLC may also be considering doing some remodeling or redesigning, especially when it comes to your kitchen.
Here at the Cabinetry and Stone Depot, we know just how tricky redecorating your kitchen can be, trying to strike a balance between looking modern, being functional and still feeling warm and inviting. So, to help get your creative juices flowing and give you some design ideas, here are some of our top remodeling trends for 2018:
Being bold with color
For many years now, more muted or monochromatic color schemes have been all the rage for kitchens, but 2018 looks set to mix things up a bit. Rather than going mad and painting your whole kitchen neon green, go for mainly white and grey with touches of Bright pastel colors.
Navy blue is especially on trend for this year, and having a quirky oven in this color is a great way to make a big statement. Alternatively, adding finishing touches to your kitchen that give pops of vivid colour is a great way to make a bold statement without overpowering the room. So, think of bright cutlery, plates and matching napkins, or painting chairs in complementing pastel colors.
Nowadays, it is not just our phones that have gotten smarter. From televisions to thermostats, our homes are getting filled up with smart devices, and this trend looks set to spread to our kitchens this year in a big way. Wouldn’t you like a fridge that lets you know when you need to restock your salad crisper?
Many think smart kitchens are the wave of the future, and a great way to hop on this trend is to add small touches like motion sensor lights or taps to your kitchen, as these also tend to be a lot cheaper than smart refrigerators or washing machines.
Metal and wood
Metallic touches like copper piping and handles or brass taps are a great way to add an industrial touch to the look of your kitchen, and you can expect to see a lot of metal cropping up in kitchens throughout 2018.
Similarly, we’re spotting a trend of moving away from all white cabinet finishes to a bleached wood and two tone finish, which helps give your kitchen a more natural, rustic touch, while hardwood floors help give the kitchen a grand, opulent feel.
Quartz isn’t going anywhere
The popularity of quartz as a kitchen countertop material doesn’t look set to go anywhere but up in 2018, and with good reason. Quartz is versatile and durable, and can come in a variety of finishes and colors that make it easy to adapt into almost any style of kitchen.
